So, continuing on with the idea of simplifying that I mentioned in yesterday’s post. . . . When I started this blog a little over two years ago, I had hoped that it would also help my new interior design business get going, as well. At best, I had hoped I would have one or two paying clients by the time my kids all got in school. Little did I know how fast your business can grow once you put it out there online.
I was first approached about online decorating a couple of months after starting my blog, and began to pick up a steady stream of local clients thereafter. I will be the first to admit, it’s both thrilling and flattering when people actually want to pay you for your ideas. It’s also very hard to say no when an opportunity comes knocking. Maybe it was all misperception on my part, but I saw other blogger/designers who seemed to be juggling all the demands of running a business, along with raising their kids and running a home, and didn’t see any reason that I couldn’t do the same.
This also opens up a lot of possibilities for my blog. I’m looking forward to bringing you more posts, which hopefully consist of more “simple”, inspiring ideas and more of the progress (hopefully) that I make on decorating our home—something I’ve had little time for since we moved in. And, I’m hoping to showcase more of your projects and rooms. (I’ll tell you more about this later.)
Thanks to those of you who faithfully read. I appreciate you sticking with me, and am looking forward to what’s ahead.
