New Painting & Ramblings on Running a Business
Tuesday, January 7, 2014
Hello out there! I'm back into the groove of working and thought I would get back to this blog! I did whip out a new painting the other night when a little burst of inspiration came to me and I really love it! Already working on more. I do have the original available, email if you're interested (laura(at)lauradrodesigns.com) or prints are available in the shop. What do you think!?
I have always used this blog as a way to share what I am working on, new artwork that I make and occasionally put together some home decor boards. There has never been a rhyme or reason to what I blog about. I'm not sure if I'm the only person out there that thinks a blog can be a headache sometimes, but recently I am so stuck how to move it forward!
I have made some amazing connections and friends and have done really great collaborations because of blogging, but overall my blogging presence is about the same as it was a few years ago! So, I wanted to ask you (if anyone has read this far) what you have done to improve your blog?...any suggestions are greatly appreciated.
Being a one-woman-show is hard and you feel like you need to do everything out there socially. But, what about me actually making the artwork, when do I have time to do that if I'm blogging and trying to improve my FB page?? I have client work, patterns to make, orders to fill, blog posts to create, marketing to do, finances to keep track of...definitely not complaining (ok maybe a little) but, I would love to know from other small business owners and bloggers how you do it!
My biggest goal for this year is to make my blog a place that I love and make it flow with my personality. I want to make it more personal, more myself, more what I trying to do with my business and not just post something last minute. So, if you have the secret recipe....please send it to me!
Phew! Ok, I feel a little better.
