I feel like I haven’t written a blog post in such a long time, even though of course that isn’t true. But I’m used to blogging every day, or nearly every day. My last post was all about my lovely May advertisers, but I had that post ready and prepped in advance. You know, being super organised and prepared har har *smug face*, and before that we had my big post of revelations, dreams, hopes and plans.
I think because of the sheer passion with which I wrote that post, I was left a little.. overwhelmed? I mean, this is it. I’ve put it all out there now and decided to take a chance on my dream, which is awesome. And terrifying. And extremely busy. So for the past few days I’ve been doing plenty of orders from some of you amazing readers who fancied one of my blog header designs, buttons, or custom illustrations. It’s been so exciting! I’ve gotten to be creative every single day and work with the loveliest of people to create unique work, which I wouldn’t have been able to without your support (thank you!).
As well as that, I’m still working full time (for the time being..), trying to blog, organising meetings with small businesses for freelance social media management and trying to have a life! (And failing..) But it’s been more than wonderful. I’m so excited and I feel I’m just at the beginning of a special journey, so it’s definitely worth a little less sleep and a few deadlines. To kick off this new determination, I went out and finally bought myself a proper desk; from which I am working right now actually. I’m so relieved, I’ve been meaning to sort out a proper work space for myself since we moved in this apartment!
No more typing away in the living room, computer on my lap, getting in Gary’s way, scrunching up papers and losing things down the side of the sofa. Thank god. This photo doesn’t do it justice, but I have a really big bay window too, which you can sit in and appreciate the view of the city. So yeah, I’m feeling inspired and motivated.
Another thing that changed recently, I dyed my hair from green to purple! :]
I’m sure many of you know this by now if you follow me on Twitter, but yeah I felt like a change was needed for Spring. Who knows what my Summer colour will be? (Okay I’ll tell you, it’s gona be pink). I’m loving the warmer hue of my hair, and the chance to match with all my many purple lipsticks too! Geeky, but yes this did actually excite me.
So what else has been going on in the land of Dorkface this week? Not a whole lot else to be honest. I do plan on being more social next week though. I’m even venturing outside to go meet the one and only Olivia on Monday for celebratory drinks. She got a brand new job and I just pretty much like to drink. I kid… sorta. I’m celebrating the successes I’ve had this week with selling design work and finally pushing myself to make a start on my own business plan. So we’ll be pretty much typical bloggers tweeting our day. You should join us.
