15.1 Meet blogging/YouTube friends in real life

Yes, I’m here again! I’m not as active as I want to be. But I just have to face it, I guess.
YouTube takes up a lot of my time. And then there are also my tutoring job and my internships which need me ;) But I’m here now and that’s what matters!

I’ve completed another goal of my 30-before-30 list… Well, sort of… Continue reading

Reading in 20 languages (or so…)

I’ll use colours in the original post to show which parts have been taken/translated

Hey everyone!

Time for another blog post =)
A while ago, I posted this very post: I need your help!
I still need your help! I’m planning on doing a video on my YouTube channel in which I read the familiar story of Little Red Riding Hood in as many languages as possible. Now I know, there are people from allover the world here that probably speak more languages than I do (only Dutch&English). I already got a Spanish, French and Italian version. But I need way more languages than that! I can translate into Dutch myself, but I’d also like a part in German, and in Finnish, and Swedish, and maybe Arabic or Afrikaans. Just as many languages as possible!!

I posted the whole story in that particular post, so I won’t post it here again. Please click through and help me by translating two or three sentences of the story. I would be very very very grateful to you!! <3

All the best!

25. Tell people (i.e. friends and family) about my YouTube channel

2016 has just started and I already completed one of the goals on my 30-before-30 list! I still have 6.5 years to go to complete this list, but yay! ^^ Marilyn and I had been planning our ‘grand reveal’ for a while now, but actually doing it had not happened until now. We filmed a crazy video around Christmas and added lots of drama (on purpose) showing how scared we were to do this. We have had our YouTube channels for almost a year now, but never told our family and friends. A few friends knew, but they were sworn to secrecy. Continue reading

Happy New Year! =)

Happy New Year everyone! I hope all your dreams may come true this year! I’ll be working on mine in the following years to come through my 30-before-30 list… ;) And I can already cross one item off the list! Yesterday (well, technically it was after midnight – so this morning) I told my family and friends about my YouTube channel together with Marilyn. We made a video and shared that on Facebook, so everyone could see it… We’re so scared now for the reactions!!! Anyway, I’ll make a more elaborate post about it later, because I want to dedicate a short post to every ‘goal’ I fulfill on the 30-before-30 list…  For now, I’ll leave you with the video we made. Excuse the drama, but this is a really big step for us!

2015 in review

Thank you all for an amazing year and your ongoing support for my work! May your best day in 2015 be the worst in 2016! And I hope all your dreams may come true! =)

Lots of love and hugs! ~ Iris

The WordPress.com stats helper monkeys prepared a 2015 annual report for this blog.

Here’s an excerpt:

A San Francisco cable car holds 60 people. This blog was viewed about 1,700 times in 2015. If it were a cable car, it would take about 28 trips to carry that many people.

I HAVE RETURNED! =)

Hello dear WordPress family!

Yes, I am back and I plan on staying for a long time to come =)
I haven’t exactly worked out a plan yet – not sure if I really should either – but I plan on spending way more time here than I’ve done in the last couple of months. Above all, I will try to read your posts on a regular basis, and post my own content at least once a month ^^

So yay!  Continue reading

A Happy Day with a Sad Note…

Last Tuesday, I had the night of my life. I went to a MIKA concert and was filled with so much joy and love that it will probably stay with me forever… <3 But that’s not the only reason I’ll remember that day for… Continue reading
