I wanted to name this post ‘Transitioning;’ however, given the huge life changes that Bruce Jenner has made into Caitlyn Jenner, the word seemed more than a little inappropriate for what I am doing these days. Instead, I went with ‘Making Changes.’ And, really, the changes I am making have to do with my business and this website, and not huge life changes. As most of you know, by profession, I am a seamstress. I sew, plain and simple. I specialize in home furnishings…slipcovers, window treatments, pillows, cushions, bedding, anything for the home. My business has been booming the last year or so, which means I work a lot and sew all the time. This is both good and challenging. Since I am working long days, sometimes 10 or more hours, I am understandably tired and feeling like I have to write is just adding to my tiredness. Don’t get me wrong, I love to write and have a lot to say; lately, though, I don’t always have the energy to do it along with everything else I am doing.
I have started posting on my Instagram (tamerieshriver) more often to promote my ‘real’ business. The cool thing about Instagram is the ability one has to post multiple places at the same time. When I post something there, I also share it with @sewtamerie and Facebook. I am still posting a daily quote on both of my Facebook pages, which automatically posts it to my other Twitter @tamerieshriver. When I post on this site, this goes out to both my Facebook pages (personal and my At Long Last Heard page), my LinkedIn, and @tamerieshriver. It’s all so confusing, and, apparently, necessary since so much of how business is conducted today is through social media. And then there is my other web site, A Little of This That and the Other, which I post on each Friday. Can you see my dilemma? Lots to do and not a lot of extra time, which brings me to the whole point of this post: I will continue to write posts for this site, will continue to tell my story (and believe me there is a ton I’ve yet to tell) and will not be so concerned if I feel unable to write and post once a week. If you want to keep up with me, I’ve given you lots of other options.
