top:2px;padding-right:5px;font-family:times;”>Even for me, this is a strange picture to start a blog post with but bear with me – the Dalai Lama is here for a reason! I recognize that I’ve been known to veer off topic, not always writing faithfully about antiques but rather dipping judiciously into the diva-aspect of my persona. But you must be asking yourself, “Has The Diva FINALLY gone mad? Has she lost her antique marbles?”

Do have patience, darlings – even I recognize it’s a stretch to put a picture of the Dalai Lama on The Antiques Diva™ blog! Then again, I’ve been known to throw around some bizarre connections in my day, blogging about Bono or Queen Bea and while I like to think my meanderings “keep it real” here at the Diva Headquarters, the Dalai Lama is actually here for a very good reason.

While Mr. Lama may have gotten the cover on this month’s issue of the national business and lifestyle magazine, The Swiss News, I’m tucked away on the inside of this very issue in a special article on “Blogging Your Way to Business”.

One of the most frequent questions I am asked by readers and clients alike is how The Antiques Diva™ blog turned into a business. Well, Chantal Panozzo got the inside scoop! Not just from me, but also from two of my fellow expat bloggers as well… toryblog.com/” target=”_blank”>Swisstory and This non-American Life!

And while you’re at it, why don’t you pop into Chantal’s personal blog One Big Yodel!

While Chantal’s blog & this article in The Swiss News are keeping you busy, I’m going to duck out the back door! I guess I should say Arrivederci – Living La Dolce Diva continues as my husband WG & I hit the road yet again! Destination – The Amalfi Coast! But this will be a working trip, as I drink prosecco and write prose, working on proposals and diva details whilst lounging on my hotel room’s balcony suspended between the cobalt blue sea and the green lemon trees of Lattari Mountains! It’s a tough job but somebody’s got to do it!

Never fear, I may be away but as always I’ve pre-posted some divalicious blogs to keep you busy in my absence.

Until next time, Ciao Bella!
