*this didn’t post last friday due to technical difficulties at work* walp.
it’s been a couple of weeks since i’ve posted a FGF post.
why? because despite still going strong with #100HappyDays…i feel like there’s been a lack of something good to write home about.
sometimes, despite your blessings – all you can see the mud, the dark clouds and terrible driving conditions when it rains. you forget all the good it does – making the grass green. cleaning the earth.
i write this on monday – hoping that there will be some somethings good to add to this post. if there’s an ed. note below – that means it did!
here are my somethings:
a very talented cartoonist/graphic designer drew me. he turned me into jessica rabbit!!! (the black version of course). and i love it. the original amy juicebox icon was from the internet and likely would’ve gotten me into trouble if i ended up in the wrong hands. so it’s nice to have something originally done for me, of me! there may be a new one coming though. (i mean.. where’s the juicebox?).
so that spurred me into action. since networking myself as a writer type of person, i went to moo.com to create some blog biz cards. something fun that i could leave behind at blog and appropriate events. moo is so fun (and user-friendly) and i can’t wait til i place that order and they are in my hands! a physical manifestation of this thing i didn’t even want to start in the first place.
i also created a blog specific email address to make me feel a little more real. so send me emails to email@example.com! eeeeee!!!!!!!
a new acquaintance is looking for an event planner. and while my credentials are legit – i have no website. i know. shameful. i could try to build an ok one on wordpress – but im a FIRM believer in paying people who do things for a living. website builder is not in my bio. why not find/use someone that does? i started it before i got pregnant, and well.. life got reshuffled.
attending a recent women networking brunch, put some fire into me. my awesome portfolio of work and volunteer events SHOULD be showcased. only i can tell my own story. so the rebuilding of the brand (logo and website landing page) begins. it’s not going to happen over night. but the point is – it will happen.
finally, i was able to conduct my first interview for a post. i was REALLY nervous and anxious and am really grateful to the blavity squad for their advice and support. im really excited to transcribe the nearly 2 hours of conversation and eventually share with the world the voice of someone that has been talked ABOUT, but not talked TO.
hmm.. maybe there are more something good than i realized.
i should do this more often.
what’s your word? it’s friday
night. and i feel alrite. what’s good with you my peoples? tell me something good!
