I’ve been a web designer for over 10 years, and the joy of my work comes from creating and connecting with folks. Since I’m a creative professional, not everyone can afford my services. My typical client is someone more established looking for less of a DIY approach to their marketing and web design.
But I was Unable to Help those Just Starting Out.
Teaching my knowledge of WordPress and web design, was the way to reach those just starting out, and unable to afford my services. For many years I toiled with this idea, but nothing ever came to fruition.
This is NOT the Real Reason I Started My Blog.
I decided to start my blog when my husband quit working for his family business after 20 years. He had been vetted for the job since age 11 and didn’t know anything else. And one day he asked me, “Can I quit?”
Since I knew he was miserable, of course, I said, “Yes”. I’m all about happiness, positivity and creating a life and business you love. So…since he was staying home and taking over the home/kid chaos, I put all of my focus into streamlining and fixing my web design business. But I also kept thinking about Starting my Blog.
I’m all about happiness, positivity and creating a life and business you love.
I spent months just fixing, fixing, fixing my business! I anticipated starting my Blog much sooner, but everything takes time. And I had to be ready. I had to have a plan and feel ready. But most importantly, I just had to start.
I often sort things out in the middle of the night when it’s quiet and less distracting. So, I finally decided an important part of my Blog would include Sharing My Story and My Creative Journey (and anything else that needed to be told).
More than anything…I needed to share my story. Realizing I needed to write about My Creative Journey made my Blog feel more complete.
My Creative Journey has not always been easy, but I believe we’re all on a path. We just need to pay attention to the signs and try not to get stuck on the bumps along the way (or make excuses!)
My Blog, Syd + Coco, will share my creative journey, my knowledge, and my skills.
And of course, the Blog will be created by and for my family. They have always given me unconditional support, love and strength to pursue my passions and dreams. Cheers!
Creativity is intelligence having fun.
