Whoooo hooooo!! The new site is up and running!! Not sure yet whether redirecting the site to a new IP address is going to mess up my email settings, but it's up and running!! I have so loved getting my geek on :-) I've been doing HTML and adding widgets and buttons -- sounds like I know what I'm doing, right?! Well, not so sure about that, but it seems to be working. I would love to get feedback!
I'm thinking of suspending the newsletter in order to keep fresh content on the website, but I guess they are not mutually exclusive. Ah, decisions, decisions.
Mmmm, I'm hoping I am now going to be able to spend some time interacting on social media. Isn't it funny, I have felt like, until I got my own stuff squared away, I didn't have anything to contribute to the discussion, but I'm not sure that that is the way to think about it. In hindsight, I wish I had just jumped in more, and at this point, I would encourage others to do the same. Finding a community of like-minded crafters and learning from them and expressing your interests and obstacles is an important way to really explore whether having your own crafts business is what you really want.
Now that I've really taken the plunge with the new website, I really hope to be able to sit back and reflect on where I was, where I am, and where I hope to be going. Of course, I will try to pass along the "gems" through this blog.
But for now, back to the books!
