Another site bites the dust

writeyourownstoryIn the spirit of consolidation, I’ve redirected WPChick.com to this site. Well, more specifically this page, which explains why.

So I’m down yet another site. Right now there are three that are mine, this one, Reclaiming Creativity, and The Alternating Current.

Still not sure what I’m doing with Alt. Current, and Reclaiming Creativity isn’t going anywhere anytime soon, but One Thing At A Time.

That said, I’m still doing a little of what I did with WPChick: the WP Coaching & Quick & Easy Sites, but it’s not all of it. Making room for the new doesn’t necessarily mean completely getting rid of the old.

After all, I said I’m consolidating…

You may see some nifty little images like the one at the top of this post pop up on my social media profiles (see the little handy block of icons to the right) over the next few weeks. They’re snippets of my thoughts on what I’m tentatively calling Creative Voice Facilitation.

Anywho, It really feels good. I don’t have the time or energy anymore to deal with the multitudes of web sites I was maintaining. Not only that, it felt like I was fractured. Pieces of me were scattered all over the interwebs. Time for a more holistic approach to what I do online, and this is the start.

Clean Slate

If it looks a little sparse around here, it’s because I’m starting from scratch.

I’ve changed a lot since 2009 and these words just seem too much like baggage to keep hanging around.

I have a friend, Crys, who’s recently done the same thing, and this has been on my to-do list for ages. So it’s time.

All my posts are gone.

Blank slate, new theme.

Ready for the new-ness to come.

I have four episodes of a podcast out called Reclaiming Creativity, all about reclaiming your creative mojo after having kids (also applicable to any major life-change). I hope you’ll take a listen.

So, what’s to come?

Voice.

More specifically finding it.

I finally realized the space where I thrive, thanks to my friend Rhiannon Llewellyn and her brand shift worksheet.

It’s facilitating voice-finding. That is, I empower people to find their creative voice and express it through whatever medium they choose, but mainly through online channels (blogging & social media) or through art.

What it really looks like in really real life? Not 100% sure yet, but its starting to feel real, and like me.

Here’s to the new.

Making my way back…

Hi. *shuffles feet*

It’s been oh… over a year since I touched this blog. Figure it’s time to come back around to it.

If you’ve been following at all (I’ve been unusually active on Facebook lately), I had a baby almost a year ago. He’s absolutely amazing. And frustrating. And wonderful. He’s been the focus of my life lately and I have a very lonely blog to show for it, but I’m not apologizing for it! I made a baby! And if I may brag a bit… a 100% medication-free birth at home. And we both survived.

We also made the move North to be closer to my family. Hi Snow & cold and brrrr…

As with my normal state of being, I have some new things in the works. I’m launching a podcast called “Reclaiming Creativity” in a few days. It’s a podcast geared towards figuring out how to… wait for it… Reclaim your Creativity 😉 after having kids.

I’ll be doing monologues and interviews. First episode is in the can, two interviews with two fabulously creative moms recorded and waiting to be edited.

This post is yet another step in me reclaiming my own creativity.

So is this…

and

And I’ll probably be simplifying my web presence. Thanks to a few things happening at the same time (my sites all being hacked, realizing I need to simplify because I can’t possibly keep 5+ sites running smoothly and with fresh content regularly). Everything will live here.

So… what have you been up to?
