Morning Meanderings… Connecting In My Non Fiction World
Good morning. Tuesday is here and I am all about my day already. COFFEE CUP is in hand and I have my to do list fully loaded to start checking off whatever I can get done before this afternoons hair cut and then a Library Board Meeting with the Policy Committee to update Emergency Plans. Good stuff. Good stuff.
Last week I was noticing how one of our fairly new local businesses had a very minimal website. Their About Us page was blank, and in their case, that is probably the most important page. I mentioned it to a lady I was working with and she asked me if I had a business card and she would give it to them if they wanted someone to build content into their website.
(in other words… silence)
I have played with the idea of a business card for my Freelance work the past few months yet every time I start one I do not like the style, and if it bores me… well, I am not going to do it. Now, recently sparked with energy about this possibility of website content writing for a business I know intrigued me. Let’s just say I got to work.
I spent the start of the weekend creating the business card which is now complete and will soon be in my hands. I almost can not wait to start handing them out. It’s kind of like putting on my big girl pants and saying out loud, “Yeah. I am doing this.”
I am kind of excited about it.
Of course for those of you who really know me… I didn’t stop there. I started building my own website… which, just so you know… feels weird. Promoting “me” is not a natural step for me and I am still tweaking the site even though it took up most of my weekend spare time and I am still working on it.
Yesterday, I went to work on my LinkedIn profile, updating, connecting with others… my goodness this connecting thing is a lot of work, however I do get that if you want to get the word out, you have to be KNOWN.
Connecting… connecting… connecting.
I think I am going to like this new world.
