Cue the trumpets! Sound the bell! Today marks the official launch of my business re-branding, and with that re-brand comes
...wait for it
...my new website.
It's been a long, strange trip since I set up this shop on my virtual corner of the internet, but 4 years and 6 months later seemed like a good enough time to peel off those old coats of paint and take a hard look at what I wanted to accomplish moving forward. This storefront came to life on November 13, 2010, and on April 13, 2015, I am ready to say: This is who I am now. Come on in and see what I have in store for you.
Re-branding (and redesigns) can be -- and perhaps should be -- an arduous process. The research alone was enough to leave me weary many a night. But ultimately, I think I've arrived at a new peak that is ready to grow and flourish instead of merely survive and maintain.
I've promised many changes in the past, but most never fully developed into the product I wanted them to be. I not only like to think that such occasions were blessings in disguise, but that they were also a process that I had to go through to arrive where I am now.
That seems to be a recurring theme for me so far this year: "You have to go through it to get to it." Like a sculptor with her chisel and hammer, I needed to work through the slab and carve the work of art I saw inside the marble before I began. And I now stand here today and say with pride, I'm finally creating what I want everyone to see.
Please have a look around. Press all the buttons. Scroll through the pages. I'm particularly proud of the About Me page, but the Blog and Hire Me pages aren't anything to sneeze at either. If you have any questions, you're welcome to give me a shout on Twitter, Google+, LinkedIn and of course, down below in the comments section.
Thank you for your patience and wonderful support through my development and rollercoaster of assurances that this creative one-stop-shop was changing. The change is here. And I'm raring and ready to go!
