What is our Blog About?
If you are familiar with my story and my company, you know that I was born and raised in Italy and I still have family and friends there. At this point, you certainly know that my bags are made in Italy and that my company was born as a desire to import quality bags made in the traditional Italian craftsmanship. Although I don't live in Italy anymore, my birth country still represents a big part of my life, and for sure of who I am.
Everyone suggests blogging for your business but I have struggled with this idea of adding a blog to our website for quite some time. The reason was that I couldn't find anything relevant and worthy of your reading time. If I have to write something, I want it to be genuine and relevant. So, I finally got to the conclusion that I have something to say, but I don't want a blog, I'd rather call it a journal, a space to communicate news about the business. Of course, Madda&Co. Journal/Blog will be about handbags, but a lot about Italy, as well. I don't want it to be one way...I feel that there are already too many words spent on anything and everything. I want it to be relevant to you by truly give you an insight, a genuine look at the country and the lifestyle through my eyes.
So, bring up the questions, the requests, whatever you want to know and learn about Italy. If there is one thing that really captures the Italian sentiment is friendship, being open and available to people around you. And this is the way I live my life and everything I do. Now, here is our first Learning Alert!
There is a saying in Italian that expresses the Italian way of life well,
"Aggiungi un posto a tavola," literally, Add a seat to the table; meaning, there is always room for one more.
On this friendly note, I leave you hoping that you will follow me along this new company journey. Please, comment below. I want to know what you think about this idea!
