I like to pretend that this blog is not important to me. It keeps me from stressing over something that is mostly a joy. I had heart palpatations when I joined an ad network last year. It required accountability and a transition in thinking. Hobby or job? I do better thinking of this as my little side vocation.
Growth has brought the need for something more. I have a new blog design that will premiering this week. A whole new website. The real deal. I invested in this little venture. I invested in myself.
As if the website wasn’t enough, I finally bit the bullet and got my big girl camera. I don’t really know how to use it yet but it feels right. Some people might spend eight years of credit card points on a vacation. Or airline miles. I invested mine.
One of the best parts of my new blogging platform will be my ability to engage better with my readers. If you comment and I reply, you should get it by email (fingers crossed) as opposed to now where my replies disappear into the great blue yonder.
If this blog brings me nothing more than what it has so far, I am satisfied. Thank you for being my virtual sidekick as I figure out this design journey. I will make mistakes. I may only have one good project a month. But if you stick with me, we can grow together.
Work in progress and all. Didn’t think I would change that, did you?
