Playing Catch Up… Day 4: Buy a Domain Name & Self Host Your Blog
Day 5: Tweak Your Blog Design, and Day 6: Update Your “About Page”
I’m still participating in the 21 day business blogging challenge, on day four the assignment was to buy a domain name and self host your blog which I’ve been doing since 2009. The next assignment was to tweak your blog design which I’ve been thinking about in depth, I now use the Thesis theme from DIY Themes and I’m contemplating using the Genesis framework by Studio Press. These themes are very customizable and allow you to design your website or blog just the way you want it. On Day 6 the assignment was to revise your “about” page on your blog.
Currently My About Page: I am a FT working mommy raising four children ages range from teen to toddler. I started a small graphic and web design business in June 09â€™ and lifeâ€™s been a hectic balancing act ever since. I work FT as a Marketing Coordinator for an alternative weekly newspaper and I handle duties within the Web Department as well.
I started blogging back in June 09â€™ to document my journey and follow my dream of becoming a mom entrepreneur and offer business resources to readers which quickly turned into a more personal blog followed by lots of social networking, social media marketing and building great relationships in the blogosphere. Iâ€™m really down to earth, drama free and a social butterfly by nature!
So with daily chaos, 4 children, FT Job, Small Business, Social Networking, Networking in my local community, and a partridge in a pear tree! Life is hectic! Honestly without chaos Iâ€™m not that productive. So, I guess I wouldnâ€™t have it any other way! If I can manage to sleep in on Saturday mornings and sneak in some “ME” time on the weekend thatâ€™s bliss! Welcome to my worldâ€¦
Revised About Me: Professionally I’m a Marketing Coordinator but, I eat, sleep and live my BRAND! In every conversation I make sure that people know what I do. In addition to my many titles I am Jael Custom Designs. I’m full time working mom entrepreneur, raising my four children ranging from toddler to teen. When my business was a mere thought before I actually had the courage to launch in 09′ I thought my life was hectic. I’ve been challenged and re challenged and now my life is one joyous roller coaster. I have my hands up in the air and sometimes I laugh and sometimes I scream!
I started blogging back in June 09â€™ to document my journey and follow my dream of becoming a mom entrepreneur and now three years later I have watched my ideas grow an flourish into a business. My digital journal turned into a resource for other small business owners and moms interested in social media and any individual with like minds. I can only dream of where I’ll be in the next three years.
So with daily chaos, 4 children, FT Job, small business, social networking, and networking in my local community, life is hectic! Honestly without chaos Iâ€™m not that productive. So, I guess I wouldnâ€™t have it any other way! If I can manage to sleep in on Saturday mornings and sneak in some “ME” time on the weekend thatâ€™s bliss! Welcome to my worldâ€¦
