Follow That Spark (Post from #StaceyLogic)

This is a post from my personal blog, #StaceyLogic. I delve into my freelancing decision a bit so I decided to share an excerpt here. Follow that spark (Seriously, just do it.) The last five months have been a roller coaster, and let me tell you, I am not a fan of roller coasters. I have had to make some HUGE changes. One of those changes was deciding to join the self employed world and … Read More Follow That Spark (Post from #StaceyLogic)

Why I decided to quit my job and work for myself

Why I decided to quit my full time job and work for myself

I am the type of person who likes a regular schedule and a steady paycheck (Who doesn’t love a steady paycheck, though. AMIRIGHT?!). My husband has worked jobs that have been commission based, and the inconsistent paychecks made paying our bills hard to do. In fact his current job is still commission based, but he has regular accounts therefore it’s more consistent.

I think it’s toughest to create a logo for yourself.  You don’t hand it off to a client after it’s approved, you are constantly looking at it and have the ability to change it.  #designerproblems This was one version of my logo. … Read More Let’s talk about logos

Website Launch: StaceyDesigns.com

Proud to (finally) launch StaceyDesigns.com Well, the time has finally come. I have decided to quit picking over small details and launch my new portfolio.

My Ramblings on one year with WordPress

So, the other day I was bumming about my list of goals I set in April after I attended WordCamp. And today, I was going over my list again, and it hit me, I have been working with WordPress just over a year, and that helped me put everything back into perspective. 365 days doesn’t actually feel like that long of a period of time, but when I think about the last year, it feels … Read More My Ramblings on one year with WordPress

My Ramblings on WordCamp Minneapolis

Last weekend I was fortunate enough to go to my first WordCamp in Minneapolis.  If I had to choose one word to describe this weekend it would be amaz-fun-tastical (I didn’t say it had to be a real word, now did I). Not only did I learn a lot, I left feeling so inspired and refreshed. I have a long list of goals now that I will be accomplishing and a long list of things I hope to … Read More My Ramblings on WordCamp Minneapolis
