Change is in the Air!

Sunday, November 14, 2010

When I first started blogging earlier this year I was nervous about so many things. It wasn't so much the writing or knowing what to say, but  I was intimidated by the computer stuff.  Up to that point, I really only used my computer to email and shop online.  I didn't even own a digital camera! My first few posts took hours to create because I had to keep referring to this



and I had the worst time learning how to find, upload and insert images.

I've known for months that I wanted some professional help to give my blog a more polished look and make it more interactive for visitors. The thing I didn't know was who to hire for my blog overhaul. I'd looked at several Custom Blog Design services out there, but hiring someone in cyberspace that didn't know me just didn't feel right.  I finally got my answer on one of my daily visits to Little Blue Deer! Shari was offering Custom Blog Design!  Finally, an option that felt just right!  Shari and I had been commenting and emailing for months and I knew she would come up with something fabulous that would represent me perfectly and take my blog to the next level!!

I'm so excited about my blog's new look and features ! Over the next few weeks I'll be posting some photos from my shop, too. I have a new location at the soon-to-open Merchants on Main here in Chattanooga where I'll be offering one-of-a-kind vintage pieces that will easily transition into our modern lives. Select pieces will also be available for purchase through the blog and will change frequently, so check often! This is something I am passionate about and I can't wait to share it with you!

Thanks again, Shari, for helping me up the next rung of my ladder! The future looks bright up here!!!

Good for you! I know, Shari is a lifeline for bloggers :) You are looking great, and I am totally inline with you on the techie thing and how daunting this task was to begin. The only thing I had was a digital camera. I got a clue a little after the fact! Ha :D I can't wait to see all that happens over here in your corner. You're doing great and pat yourself on the back for a transformation well done. I had NO idea that book existed, too cute! XOXO
