I am happy to report that a few creative initiatives I made time and space for are starting to bear fruit. One such initiative is starting a couple of newsletters. One is for more freelance stuff, the other is to gather a community of those interested in storytelling and it’s growing!
I built my brand on storytelling and basically documenting everything I was learning as I explored my desire to become a designer.
I learned everything on my own and didn’t have a design community behind me so the only way I could cope with all that time working alone was to blog about it and post it on social media.
So my newsletter readers have responded with wonderful stories of creative ideas they would like to bring to life and so much more. Some have written back to request creative mentorship or helping them rewrite their creative professional resume. All good things.
The most important thing to take away from this is that I am not trying to sell anything to my subscribers, I started it with a genuine interest to get to know my followers and readers and offer any help that may be needed as they explore the freelancer path or want to use storytelling to help grow their online presence.
It was been wonderful to have actual conversations with my readers and share ideas back and forth always looking for way to collaborate. So I’m feeling really groovy about it and look forward to seeing this grow!
Have a great day everyone!
