It’s been a long time since I’ve written a new post. Every time I come up with new ideas for a great blog, I find myself procrastinating like crazy then I become busy with other things in my life. Between working my first full-time job at Scientific Marketing Services, moving in with my boyfriend who runs his own art business, and trying to maintain my own business, I’ve found myself running out of time to enjoy my personal life, which includes writing blog posts. I’m done with the excuses and would like to update the world with what I am working on.
So far, I’ve been working on my own graphic and web design business, and trying to get more clients. So far, so good with that. I’ve found myself diving into social media quite often and I’m trying to help small business owners learn how to properly use it as a powerful tool for their business. This summer, I’ve also re-explored my love for taking photos. So, I decided to buy a new Epson printer and make prints of the great photos I’ve taken. It’s been quite a journey trying to work a full time job and balance all of my creative projects. But in the mean time, keep an eye out for huge announcements regarding e-commerce stores.
If you’d like to have a chance in winning a custom print from me, please enter my latest Facebook contest, which you can find at my facebook page. If anyone would like to ask me questions or buy some of my photography, shoot me an e-mail at WildLotus@mail.com. I’ll gladly mail you a photo print if you donate a buck or two towards my creative projects.
Thanks, world, for keeping me inspired. Stay great. :)
After months of coding, designing, and getting feedback, Wild Lotus Media’s website is finally live! It was a true struggle trying to represent my business brand, Wild Lotus Media, while representing myself as a person and designer. By being so connected to my content, I wanted my portfolio site to be perfect. This resulted in some designer’s block, which I finally overcame by getting some good inspiration around the web.
I am proud to say that I’ve designed and hand-coded 99% of the website. I started off with a design, then used Foundation to help me get started. Foundation is great for making a responsive website with additional goodies. I used HTML5, PHP, and Jquery. I hand coded the contact form, as well as the portfolio aspect, which pull images from social media sites.
If you have any comments or questions, please leave some feedback or e-mail me at WildLotus@mail.com. I hope you enjoy my site!
