Ah, the magic of some sleep.
I wasn’t lying when I said I’d had lots of positives lost in a cloud of fatigue over this past week. It’s a sure sign of May being better than April, I’m convinced! The biggest triumph of the week was, on the very last day of the shitstorm month known as April, my Etsy shop got its first sale! 3 out of my 4 drawings have since been shipped to their new home on the other side of the States! To one person! That’s a big ego boost for me. And it happened just when I was going to throw in the towel. I have so much on my plate I might as well just be sitting at a buffet. And I completely misjudged how much work running an Etsy shop can be. I’ve wanted to have an Etsy shop since my son was born in 2010 but I just haven’t had the time to really devote to it. So a month and a half in with no sales, I was very much considering not renewing my listings in July and held off on posting anything new. But now I think I’ll keep it going. It may not be as big and varied as the shop of my dreams right now, but it’s worth it. My work is appreciated.
But while thinking about my Etsy shop, I started to question whether or not I want to keep my blog’s name the same. I started blogging again with the intention of focusing mainly on my crafting and photography but it’s pretty much taken on a life of its own as my little parenting ranthole. I will never pigeonhole myself and say I only blog about ___________ yet I feel my shop and blog having the same name, when being very different, just doesn’t set right. And I kinda miss my old tumblr username, which is much more fitting with my blog.
So I think it’s time for a change. Again.
Dude, I freaking survive on change. I don’t think I’ll ever be able to buy my own domain; I’ll be wanting a new one within two months. Or, well, one month if we look at my most current change desire.
Ok this is boring, time for cute pics of kids celebrating a Sesame Street-y birthday! See? See?! Right there, change change change! ADHD of the blogz.
