Happy New Year Everybody.
Well, 2016 is over, and 2017 is underway, and I haven’t blogged in months.
I’ve never been one to give much credit to arbitrary dates on the calendar having more significance than others but hey, since the rest of the world seems to, so I may as well acknowledge that. I have decided to shift focus on my website and blog.
As a visually minded person I think in pictures, not words. As a politically minded individual I know I have to speak up when I can. And as a yoga teacher, I recognize that spreading myself too thin doesn’t benefit anyone.
You may have noticed that my blog posts have dwindled from daily to regular to sporadic, mostly because words are failing me (as they often do). I have decided that my blog will still exist, but I will be sharing more art and image-based content, and yes, of course the occasional rant, pop-culture analysis, just to keep things interesting. I would rather use this website as a platform to share art and design work, a web-based portfolio of sorts.
I made the common mistake most bloggers/content creators and beginning web designers make: I tried to do too much too fast. I started off trying to include art, design, yoga, writing, ads, and e-commerce to my site immediately. This zealous attempt to tackle the elusive passive income of successful lifestyle bloggers has resulted in crappy code, overcrowding, too much copy, pop-ups that annoy visitors, and a website I was less than proud of. Talk about stressful!
Part of the idea I had about living my inspired truth was that I wanted to minimize my stress. To have it all and do it all. To be a successful creative entrepreneur. And all I’ve been doing is spinning my wheels and going nowhere.
While I’m not big on “new years resolutions” I am big on holding true to your ideals and accepting/embracing change. I am committing myself to building a better website featuring fuller and more dynamic portfolios of my work.
Stay tuned, because it’s going to be awesome.
