Hello there friends! Remember that surprise that I first said was announcing in August, then in October…well…I feel like I really owe you guys an explanation about all that. (I’m not leaving or anything, don’t worry) So, here goes:
For a long, long, long time I’ve been wanting to start my own business. Actually I’ve started several business’ over the course of my 13 years of life. Countless yard/garage sales, one jewelry sale, 2 Etsy shops, and a jewelry business where I sold $3 bracelets to my grandma and aunts at birthday parties. (just the thought makes me cringe and laugh at the same time)
So anyway, I’m sure your asking what this has to do with this. (is this confusing or what?) Well, actually a lot.
Once I started blogging in November of 2016, I knew that I wanted to 1) Continue doing so for my entire teenagerhood (is that a word) and into my career life and beyond. 2) Start some type of business online.
This past year I’ve really been thinking about what I want to do. I considered being a professional photographer, but that was only one thing that I liked to do, and what I really like to do is to design and make things, I also like clothes a lot, I always have.
So I’ve decided on (what I think) I want to do. I want to own an fashion and home decor business. (I’m sure they’ll be some jewelry thrown in XD)
After really thinking more about this, I decided to launch my business on Etsy as a home decor business, and eventually make it it’s own company and add fashion to it. Eventually seems like a key word in this. XD
Anyway, I also decided that I needed to start a professional website. That was supposed to happen by August. And now it’s October. I haven’t even begun to research what I need to do to start a website. And due to life circumstances beyond my control, I haven’t had time, and my parents haven’t had a ton of time to help me with this either.
I’m focusing on what I can do, instead of what I can’t do. Right now that’s: Growing my business, finishing my book, doing school, and continuing to blog. Trusting in God’s timing is always best, and right now I’m pretty sure that he doesn’t want be starting my new website just yet.
So that was really long. Sorry about that, I guess I had more to explain then I originally intended. Also, don’t get worried or anything, I’m not leaving (honestly I don’t think that I could ever leave, you guys mean the world to me!)
I guess that was just a really long life/blog update.
Oh, and I just thought of a little bit more:
I’m also starting an email list as a way to (hopefully) gain a larger audience here on my blog. They’ll be a post about that sometime soon!
Right now my plan is to grow my business and finish my book by next summer, then I’ll start the website and transfer everything here, on this current blog over to my new professional one! But plans don’t always seem to go as planned, so hopefully all that will happen before 2020. That’s my hope and goal for the moment.
Thanks so much for reading this guys! I hope you enjoyed the fall photos! 🙂
P.S. I took all those photos of myself on the self-timer on my camera, (I’m pretty proud of them) What do you guys think? New profile pic? Or do you like the one I have?
(let me know what you think)
P.S.S. Apologies for the lack of featured image Photoshop isn’t working, and I don’t have my fonts anywhere else.
