Where are you?What have you been up to?When will the site be ready?
Some of the questions I’ve been asked, these past two months. With obstacles and events popping up into my life, they’ve force me to put certain projects and goals on the back burners to simmer.
My website is now a priority again. Early August is when I would like the site made public. In the meantime, I’ve been contacting my favorite vendors, just ordered some supplies and updated several accounts I will need (shipping, merchant, hosting,etc). I have a meeting with my web designer before the week’s end to go over some new layouts which, he may want to kill me because I’m making more changes.Also have to take several photos of my merchandise.
I did manage to do something these past weeks though. Moved my blog!
With words of advise from great friends in smart places. I’ve decided to move from wordpress.com and put my blog on wordpress.org. This allows me to have more freedom with layouts, advertising and the contents of my posts.
Got a new signup page too. One of my art pieces is what you’ll see when you visit theromeoreport.com. Visual stimulation is what I’m going for.It’s just a matter of time before you see my biggest project ever come to life. Rushing it just wouldn’t be right.
Deciding to start TheRomeoReport was the most important decision I made in 2008. It involved, working on my insecurities, my fear of thinking that starting my own business will be too overwhelming to handle. I went back and forth with my ideas for months.
This is where friends and family can help you realize your strengths, give much needed encouragement and push you in the right direction. It came down to me not hoping that I can do it, but knowing it will happen once I take care of my business plan, do my research and put in the hard work. Theromeoreport.com I can see evolving into something greater than just a website.
I know where l would like my business to be in a year, even five years from now, but no one knows what the future holds. With the countless creative minds out there, including my own, I have to be able to evolve with my comrades and with the months/years ahead of us.
With less than 72 hours before January 1st 2009 is here, I’m excited to see what the New Year has in store for me, Theromeoreport.com and the people that are supporting along my Yellow Brick Road.
