a week in ‘grams + a call for your feedback!

Untitled

These posts always make me nerve-wracked, because I inevitably think that very few people care enough about a space to comment on it, unless they have something very serious to say. Lately, I’ve been thinking about this space and how hard I’ve worked to make it a haven. This space is ad + brand free because I love the austerity of it, I love the feel of coming home to a place that offers stories and a slice of beauty each day.

Yet, I’ve also realized that while food + storytelling are at the core of what I love and what gets me out of bed in the morning, there are so many other things I equally love, and I want to find a way to make all of these passions fit. Play on the playground, as it were.

I’ve been toying with the idea of advice videos {career, writing, so forth} or photo journeys, but I’m admittedly a bit stumped.

This is where YOU come in. I’d love to hear what you like about this space, and perhaps what you want to see (or not see) more of. I always think good feedback is helpful, and while my heart drives what’s on these pages, I have nothing to gain by understanding what pleases you too. Feel free to leave your thoughts in the comments, tweet at me (@felsull), or send me an email (felsull -at- gmail -dot- com)!

  1. Felicia, I would LOVE to see advice videos from you! Career and writing would be awesome since I’m curious about both–what your career has been like, what you learned, what you might have done differently, what you would do if you were just starting out on your career and loved writing 😉 You allude to what your career has been like and maybe tell more about what your writing life is like–I would just love to hear more about your thoughts on both.

    I adore your clean, bright photography, so photography journeys are always welcome, in my opinion 🙂 I LOVED watching your adventures through Europe through your photos. Also, I love it when you share your writing projects. They’re always gorgeous and thought-provoking!

    1. Erika – This is so awesome, and thank YOU for your constant encouragement. I’ve been thinking more about video and even more so how I can mentor women virtually. So many folks ask me about career advice, and I’ve been thinking about a forum in which I can share that. So much fodder for thought. Thanks!

  2. Felicia, I love your writing and photography – esp the day to day images you capture while in neighborhoods both near and far. I would really enjoy any videos that you would like to make – as someone in client marketing, I’m always interested in people’s takes on careers, brands, etc. I would also love to hear about other hobbies or likes that you have – I don’t think that blogs need to be very restrictive as far as topic; but that may just be me. As you are on a journey, what would you think about launching even a tab/area on your blog for others to share their journeys?

    1. Tracey – This is so very helpful! You know, I’ve been exploring a series (myself + guest) on women and careers. I’m thinking about creating a guest series, Old Girls’ Club, where women talk about the things they’ve learned, advice they can give, anecdotes, etc. Essentially, a way in which women can give advice and inspire others, whether they’re just starting their career journey or are finding their way up the exec ranks.

      I’ll definitely give your feedback a lot of thought. I’ve also been thinking about talking about my yoga practice, more about books, etc.

      Love this! TY!

      Cheers, Felicia

  3. I love the Old Girls Club idea. And I’d love to hear advice re: work, writing, pretty much anything. I am a true sucker for your fiction and adore the memoir/food essays. All of the above, I say! (I know, really helpful…)

  4. While I’m a fan of your writing and photography, adding videos to your space is a great idea. There something very immediate about videos.

    I also LOVE the idea of an “Old Girls Club” series. Blogging, to me, is also about community and the one down side of working from home/for yourself is the lack of colleagues. I would be very interested in hearing what you and your community of cool ass women have to say.

    1. I would love to read what YOU have to say, great lady, on moving to a new country and starting an amazing business for yourself. Ping me via email. I’d love to have you guest post, if you’re up for it 🙂

  5. I enjoy your blog posts when you tell a story with pictures and not words–but I also enjoy reading about your struggles in life through the written word. What’s most stirring to me is your honesty. It comes through in your writing and photography. I am not as much of a video fan as others, perhaps, but I’m always open to new ways to present content. Keep up the good work.

  6. Felicia – you produce the finest food porn I’ve seen in a long, long time so please don’t stop those photos or recipes. I’d also love to hear what you have to say about writing (and publishing!) and yes, a little more insight into what you do career wise would be very interesting. Yes, because I’m a nosey wotsit but also because I get these hints that you potentially are ass-kicking at what you do and that’s inspiring!. As everyone else has attested to, please don’t stop the regular doses of pretty words and your beautiful photography. I may not check it as much as I want (damn book editing!) but I truly applaud what you do on this space!

  7. I especially love your photography of NYC – more writing about the city from your perspective would be great – you have known the city your whole life. Good luck with all your new ventures!

  8. Felicia–I’ve been reading your blog a long time and I appreciate how it has evolved and that it reflects your authentic self and your myriad interests, insights, and what you are thinking about, working through, etc. Sometimes you have written about your personal style and your home and how you are striving to make your outer life and inner life come into alignment, so I’m always interested in that journey, because I am trying to do that, too. I love your recipes and your musings on books and writers, too.
