Graphic Design and a Business?!

Wow, I have not updated in quite some time… SORRY!

A lot has happened since we moved into our house and not much of it has involved actually writing. Truthfully, I haven’t written much at all in months! (Crazy, I know). But that is for good reason — Well, I think it is good reason — and that reason is… I am doing a graphic design program and my husband and I started our own business!

I am on week 11 of 52 for my program and I am loving it. And after I finish, I am most likely also going to do a 52 week program for web design. I am really excited to be able to make my own book covers in the future and, once I am finished the program, I plan on creating a brand new design for my website!

As for our business, my husband is a developer and I’m working on becoming a graphic designer (match made in heaven :P), so we decided to start our own company called Coded Pixel Development and Design.

I created the logo! What do you think?

We already have a great client and we are working on our first mobile app that we hope to release soon!

Now everyone, don’t worry! I will continue to write. I will always write. That is my first and foremost love. I’m just taking a break to get our business on the go and my schooling finished and then I will be back to writing like crazy! PROMISE!

I’ll try to update more frequently in the future, and even write a few posts that are not just updates soon. Buh-bye!

  • I started a copywriting biz, and I’m having a hard time letting go of writing my blog and fiction. You make it sound so clear: put the writing aside and focus on the business. If I adopted that mentality, I’d probably feel a lot less pressured about time.

    Good luck!

    • Hi Diane!

      Being in school definitely helps with putting writing aside for the time being. I have deadlines that are non-negotiable, so I have to focus! But it is really hard and some days I feel down about not writing, but I just don’t have the time. If only there were 30 hours in a day…

      Good luck with your copywriting business! 🙂

  • This is so cool! (I know we just chatted about this on FB, but then I started catching up on emails and saw this. #fate).

    So excited for you guys. I’ll keep you in mind for referrals!

    • I suppose the reverse logic must also apply then. “Whenever things appear to be getting worse, you have noticed or realized something?”

      as long as I apply that reversal I find your advice quite helpful, as Leetah and I both of obsess over every detail and tend to get bogged down in realizing so much that things do seem to be getting worse.

      But we’ve learned that you have to cherish those small times when things appear to be getting better. take a moment to reflect on success or your negativity is just going to manifest more of what you don’t want.
