Well, let's start this off by admitting and forgiving myself for not keeping up on blogging for a few weeks. Life (and some depression) gets in the way sometimes. After my last post preparing for the garage sale, I had an out of town wedding weekend and- of course- held the garage sale. I have to say I consider it a success and will likely repeat the sale next year if all goes well. From the in person sales over the weekend we raised almost $300 for puppies and kitties! And I didn't stop there, I listed online some of the items I didn't sell and we've bumped that up to almost $400 now! So exciting! I'll see if I can get that grand total even higher over the next few days.
So, I haven't kept up on blogging and updating as I should. I was very frustrated at the end of April, some road bumps and a slow month of business got me down. Bu we don't have to focus on that, I want to focus instead on what's been going on this week. I had an exchange of services with a friend who does online marketing - she is helping me learn how to market myself on the internet and social media (shout out to True Grit Creative Co.! https://www.instagram.com/truegritcreativeco/ She is amazing and really knows her stuff!) and I am helping her move into a new (smaller) apartment. After spending time with her I felt a renewed energy. I felt back in my element, like I really can do this after all. With her help I can make my presence online known, and she encouraged me as we worked on unpacking that, YES I am good at this and people need my help. SO LET'S KEEP GOING!
