My new home on the web - FINALLY!

Hey guys! I know, I know..it's been AGES since I have blogged. I am finding it hard to get motivated lately with just 9 weeks left of my pregnancy and having 1-4 children in my home after school during the week. The days are flying by and I seem to spend most of my time doing chores or eating or napping because I'm tired from all the chores and eating. LOL. You moms know how it is. ;)

I have some GREAT news to share with you all! I have a new home on the web! After several years of having my domain parked I FINALLY got around to getting my website up. YAY me! I give myself two snaps up in Z formation for that one, considering I don't have much time to be creative at all lately. I was determined, I tell you and determination and intention can move mountains! Let that be a lesson to you all. No more excuses! You have a goal? Take the steps (even if they are baby ones) and you WILL reach it and when you do - man, oh man…does it feel GOOD.

I used Squarespace to design the site and just transferred my domain over from Google. MAN - was THAT a pain in the butt! I literally had to go through hoops to even get access to my domain because it had been so long. Google does not make it easy to trouble shoot. But, thankfully, I found the answers I sought via Google product forums. I don't ever want to do that again.

Here's a screenshot:

How do you like me now?? For now I have the blog link directed to here and my shop link directed to Etsy but I was thinking about having a separate blog on the website that is strictly business with recent project news and changing things up a bit here. This way my more personal inspirational posts that seem to get a lot of hits and comments have a place and my clients don't have to sift through that to get work posts. What do my readers think about that? That would change this blog to more of a lifestyle, personal blog. I need a place to vent but don't want to mix business with my personal life. Makes sense, no? What do my readers think? I would love to get your feedback on this. YOU have to read this after all. From what I gather my readers prefer my more personal posts. You guys like to see what I'm up to but you respond more to posts like this one. This is going to take some thought and planning. In the meantime I would appreciate your feedback in comments.

Come see my site in action (and bookmark it) before you comment and let me know what you think!

Have a great day!
