I miss writing blog posts. The reason that I'm not so present online at the moment is simply that things are very busy. It's excellent, I feel privileged and like I'm slowly getting everything I always wanted for my business - the hard work is paying off, but there's plenty more hard work to do to get to the next level.
What I've decided, is that I'm going to make time to blog more. I get such lovely feedback on blog posts - not so much in comment format, but on instagram and Facebook, or even on emails. I'm very thankful for that! As such, I am not a blogger, I am someone with a business who also happens to have a blog… but I'm going to communicate a lot more on said blog. Once you type the word 'blog' over and over again you realise it's a really daft word. Blog.
Here is my little blog pledge! If I don't do it then fell free to tell me off!
- A product blog post once a week - I love sharing what I'm up to, from the design development process through to shouting about new products in the shop. I will share more of this!
- A monthly more personal post. Don't worry, I won't start airing my dirty laundry, but I have so many things that I adore that I'd love to share a little more of. Sometimes this might be sharing someone else's work, or an exhibition I went to… just something nice.
- Business posts. Ok, the disclaimer here is that this will NOT turn into an advice blog. There are plenty of those around, and I am not going to be one as we don't need another. However, I've recently had a surge of people asking for bits of knowledge or help on setting up or running their own business, and now I've been trading full time for almost two years and am at a place where I would deem my business the beginning of a success, then I think I'm qualified to share a bit more about my journey and hopefully pass a bit of what I've learnt on to anyone who is interested. I'd like to do this now and again, not monthly as such but whenever it's relevant. I've made amazing choices and terrible mistakes - both are equally important!
- Update the design. Oh good god this website needs updating! I have so many new products, photographs and all sorts that needs to go up! It will be done and I'm so excited to share this all with you. There will be an Oh Squirrel shop very soon too.
So now I've wrote it down I have to do it! & I will!
