It’s been four long years since we last had a fresh coat of paint around here. I wanted to brighten things up, and also bring the dear old blog and my copywriting business, Shauna Reid Writes (gedddit?) into one place.
When I started increasing my freelance work, I stuck up a temporary biz website listing my services. Somehow “temporary” turned into 3.5 years. I take time to warm up to these things, you see.
Let me explain with a clumsy lipstick analogy! Because lipstick is ace.
Just say you decided to start wearing lipstick. You’d always wanted to, but it took awhile to work up the nerve. So you practiced quietly, choosing a tame, neutral shade. Perfectly presentable; solid and reliable. Some people noticed you were doing something different, but not so many that you would freeeeakkkk out from the pressure or anything!
Now after 3.5 years of full-time lipstick wearing, you feel more confident in your lipstick-wearing abilities, so you reckon it’s okay to say it out loud, “I am a wearer of lipstick!”. Maybe you could even try wearing a brighter shade?
So this new website feels like putting on a bold red swipe of MAC Lady Danger!
It feels slightly terrifying and knowing me, there will frequently be lipstick on my choppers. But, och well. Time to live a little.
What does this mean for you, treasured visitor?
If you come here for the blog, I’ll continue to bring you life wafflings and travel tales as per the last 16.5 years. With renewed zest, because it looks so shiny around here.
If you’re a fellow blogger or small business person looking for wordly assistance, you no longer need ESP abilities to discover how I can help.
This fancy facelift is once again the work of Papermoustache. They’re a wildly creative, intuitive, and infinitely patient duo – Ale the design and code maestro, and Sara cooking up these beautiful illustrations. Thank you so much!
Mega thanks also to Super Sas for being a cheerleader and sage sounding board throughout. You rawk! Sas posed the question almost a year ago, in her wise coachly manner, “Soooo… how would it feel to have just one website?”
It took awhile, but we got there.
Welcome again, groovy people. Have a nosy around!
(The contact page is my favourite. Those lightbulbs!)
Thank you, as always, for stopping by.
