My old friend has returned, and I have waited a long while for her to come back to me. I am jumping for joy! Who is she you ask? It’s my previous domain, Today’s Working Woman. She is here and I am happy to announce that she is all mine!
Today’s Working Woman and I first became friends in April 2010, when the economy turned south and I experienced a reduction in hours. I had time on my hands so I just poured my thoughts onto paper and started a blog. I didn’t do much with it as I just needed a release from the world. If you are interested, you can read my first ever post here.
Turning a blog into a temporary writing career
Well that blog turned into a temporary writing career. I didn’t make much money at it as that was never my intent. All I wanted was to get my name out there and leave a legacy. I networked, found myself an online gig or two, and even became an editor for a magazine as well as an independently published devotional.
When I started to write book reviews (some for a few best selling authors) I was ready to advance my blog into a full blown website. However, I ran into a big problem. The domain for Today’s Working Woman was already taken and in use. Rather than risk a lawsuit, I quickly changed the name to Today’s Writing Woman and reinvented my brand. I was heartbroken because I had put so much effort into her, and now, my old friend was gone.
Since late 2010, I have written off and on, never with much consistency because I started working again, 40 hours a week. As many of may know, when you have a full-time job, you have little extra to do the fun stuff. Since I have a lot of hobbies, my writing had to be interspersed with all the other things I loved to do.
Return of my old friend
Now it’s time for me to #embracethechanges again. With some free time on my hands, I can get back into writing again because it is what I love to do. For now, Today’s Working Woman is currently on standby until I work on how to integrate my old friend into this website. If anybody has any ideas, please let me know. I would love to hear from you!
Also, I would like to thank my web guy, Brandon McCloskey for helping me with all the technical aspects of getting Today’s Working Woman under my control. Brandon has been a phenomenal support to me, and I highly recommend him for your website needs.
Wishing you moments to do the things you love,
