Remember that whole redesign I went on and on about a while ago? Well, I just wanted to say, it’s coming. The whole process unexpectedly turned into a journey of self-evaluation and self-discovery. Deciding and committing to a new direction, a new look, a new online visual identity is a scary thing. And doing it yourself is a whole other task in itself. Through the process I’ve learned lots, realized doubts, found clarity, and gained many grey hairs. I’m realizing that going my own way takes patience, a whole lot of hard work, self-awareness and confidence to boot.
I’ve never felt such a burden about a decision like this before. As a dreamer and a dabbler, it’s been hard for me to take this next step and really commit to something. I think I’ve been afraid. Time to put that behind me now, and before this year is over!
The new site coming together wonderfully and I can’t wait for you to see it. I designed it and while I was planning to do the development as well, I decided to step down and wave my white flag. Thankfully, I was lucky enough to connect with Dennise Saxton to help (we met back at Blogshop). She’s been so wonderful to work with and I’m beyond grateful for her help!
We’re nearing launch date and I’ll keep you posted. :)
Hooray for progress!
