I know I was gone a long time but now I'm back and I'm trying to pick-up where I left off. The past 3 years have been very interesting and haven't been conducive to my blogging life. However, I'm on the cusp of turning 50 years old and I want to start living that life that lives in my head - instead of it being a hope and a dream I want it to be a reality. I'm trying to balance the demands of my job as the assistant to the director/principal investigator for a cancer research at in a prominent university, my personal life (without alienating the affections of my husband, 2 cats and my dog) and this shop. It's a lot of work - much more than I remember it being.
I've quietly started working and promoting my photography shop on Etsy - Dragonfly Photography. I've added new items to store, spruced up the listings to optimize SEO searches (I'm not totally sure what that means - but it seems to be important), and I've spent an inordinate amount of time promoting my shop on Facebook, have created my wholesale sheet on Trunkt, and, I have a couple of blog features happening in April and May. All this to drive traffic to my shop, in the hopes that all this work will generate some sales.
One thing I've noticed working on my store for the last month is how much I missed my on-line community and all the connections I made. It feels good to be back. Knowing that I'm not typing my heart out and not getting lost out there somewhere really makes me feel good.
It's good to be back and I hope you'll be here to keep me company.
