Follow them Friday: Little Brussels Sunshines

Our 67th “Follow them Friday” features Elena from Little Brussels Sunshines who blogs in English & French.

When did you start blogging?

Little Brussels Sunshines Facebook page started in February 2014 and it became a blog in December of the same year

How did you decide on the name of your blog?

I’m an Italian expat, and it was very hard at the beginning to get used to the grey and cold weather of Brussels. I thought that sharing my favorite tips and places could have been like offering “some Brussels sunshine” to myself, and to my followers (petit bonheurs bruxellois).

What was the title of your first ever blog post?

My Sunny Brussels 🙂 , only 3 posts, now deleted
