I recently got the coolest invitation ever.
The editorial director of focusfeatures.com, distributor of the new George Clooney film The American, asked me to come up with a list of my five favorite Italy films. The result was Five in Focus: American Expat Bloggers on Italian Movies. I was one of six bloggers that was granted this fun opportunity to both relate my favorite films set in Italy and get a link back to my site Italofile.com.
Who would have ever thought that my labor of love, my little website on Italy travel, would get mentioned in the same breath as a George Clooney film? Well, I am thrilled and hope this is just the beginning of more fantastic opportunities and lucky breaks.
I can’t believe it’s been more than one whole year since I wrote a post for this blog. The main reason was because I kept having this technical glitch with wordpress, my blogging software. That all seems to be solved, thanks to a solution from tech blogger Dave Risley. I owe him.
Of course, it hasn’t been just technical problems that have kept me away from missadventures.com. I’ve been blogging away on my other blog italofile.com, which is where I post information about travel to Italy. I just updated that site with a new look, so please visit.
Further, I’ve been busy keeping up with a new baby, Leo, who arrived in November, and an old baby, Dante, who’s almost 3. They haven’t left much time in the day to do freelance writing or to travel, which are the subjects I most blog about on this site. We did do some traveling in Turkey before the baby arrived, however, so I hope to provide a few photos and updates about that before we leave here.
In the meantime, be patient. I’ll be back to posting on missadventures.com very soon.
