Family time and a new venture

I can't believe how fast this week has flow by! It seems only yesterday that I was writing a post about the Royal Wedding and here it is a week later and I have hardly had a moment spare since!

Catching up with my family is very much the order of the day at the moment, and since it's 2 and a half years since I was last in Australia, it is a chance to reconnect with everyone in a way that is almost impossible from the other side of the world.

I think it's fair to say that I'm not really someone who can sit around for long and do nothing, so in between visiting friends and family, I've started (another) new venture that I've wanted to do for sometime. I don't talk much about my day to day work on here (in fact I'm not sure that I have ever!), but my new venture is closely connected to my normal work as a copywriter.

Having done copywriting for a number of years, I've had a lot of call for doing web design and SEO for others, but I've always put off doing it as a specific service alongside my other work. However, after a lot of deliberation, I've finally decided to push forward in a new direction, and I'm going to start 'officially' designing and building blogs and websites. So this week has been all about getting things together and getting my new blog 'Crafty Lil Fox' online.
I've still got one or two minor tweeks I'd like to make, but I think that on the whole it's ready for visitors - and I'd love it if you'd pop by and let me know what you think!

Have a great weekend!

Oh, well done, Melissa. It's always a big deal getting any new project on the go. Going home to Australia must be good for you!!!

How exciting! All the best in your new venture, I really admire people who are happy to create opportunities rather than wait for opportunities to find them! Sounds like it's been a very good trip in many ways xxx
