Blog Resuscitated


After a long period of blog neglect, I am glad to be back to blogging again. I have been busy working on finding work, and that search has finally proven fruitful. On Tuesday, July 5, I start my new job at The Online 401(k). I am just thrilled! My new position gives me the chance to shine with my print design and production experience and the opportunity to flex my interactive skills. If I could write the perfect job description for where I am in my career, it would be for this job.

So now that I have something worthwhile and productive to do with my time, I look forward to enjoying my free time by continuing to work on and develop this site. When I made the transition from a static HTML/CSS site to a dynamic WordPress CMS site, I didn’t have time to do much more than get it up and running to assist in my job search. In the months to come, I look forward to trying some new things and developing more content. I have a couple of friends for whom I have done some web design and development work. I would like to take what I’ve done for them and power it up by moving them into WordPress CMS with its easy to use interface and powerful plug-in options.

Ideally, I want to build a site that is more reflective of all my interests. I have a lot of video I would like to add to my site, as well as many photo albums from recent trips that I would love to share. Now that I have upgraded to Adobe CS5 Master Collection, I have the tools I need to do a lot of things that have been just out of reach before. It is so nice to have the right tools to do the work I love to do! So keep checking me out from time to time. I may not be able to update daily, except my Twitter posts, but I will update at least a few times a week.

    I’m so happy that you are employed in the same field, I thought I was going to lose my wingman when you were thinking of making a career move and heading back to school.
    Welcome back to design, the workforce and creativity!

    Yeah, I’m glad to be back, too. I didn’t want to make a career move, but it was a long, bleak recession. I had to be prepared to do something different, if necessary. All’s well that ends well. I’m glad I can get back to my passion and do what I love for a living.
