So yeah, I have been just reblogging political posts, but I thought it was high time for me to give you guys an update. I have been working, and by working I mean I have been working on my blog. My blog has gotten a lot more popular and I really have been concentrating on getting an ENGAGED audience and gradually monetizing my blog WTF The Mortal Instruments?!
I had to put Dress Them Up on hiatus, I have a feeling that blog is going to be big one day, but I’m putting all of my efforts into WTFTMI. Honestly, I can’t believe that it’s almost a year since this started that blog and I’m so happy how much this past year blogging as changed me as a person.
I was so afraid of stepping on any toes, I was so afraid to use my voice in the beginning days and now It has been worth every challenge I had to face and there endless ways for this blog to grow over time.
I’m also back to doing Graphic Design, no pure professional designs but I have been doing a lot of fandom stuff because not only do I love to do it but because it’s a way to get my name out there. I mean, my first clients were people from Fandom and I really hope that trend runs true. I think I’m going to do more fandom events as well and start networking and getting better at it.
The one thing that my year blogging at WTFTMI and finishing City of Ashes gave me the confidence to get back to writing. I have been writing by Dragon Natural Speaking, but it turns out it’s hard to dictate anything with kids. So I’m back to my old method of writing and using Text to Speech programs to proofread, which is annoying, but I had to do that with Dragon anyway.
I think I’m going to work my way into publishing my own book as well. But right now I’m taking it day by day, and I’m not going to rush it at all. I’m just going to learn everything I can in the meanwhile.
Personally, I’m still waiting for my sister’s baby to come home. The babies came early and one of the babies, unfortunately, died in the womb. So now, we are waiting for all the red tape and stuff to finish before he comes home. We thought he would be home this week, but we still had some bureaucratic bullshit to deal with.
Also this week, the younger of my Irish Twins had a birthday yesterday and it was a low key thing. Niyah turned two years old yesterday. She was very excited about the cake and the ice cream and I can’t believe that they are both two years old. It’s more than a little alarming that they growing up so damn fast. A part of me wants to keep them little forever and another part of me wants them to hurry up and go to school so I can have eight blissful hours of quiet.
Anyway, I’m off to finish some much-needed projects and I will give you another update soon.
