As many of you will already know, I launched my website last week.
It was a big thing for me to step out there into the ether where people can find me and form an opinion about me and my work - but really, the important bit of that first sentence is this: "As many of you will already know...", which makes my mind pop.
I know that social media is not real life, and that all this courage boosting attention is not the same as sales which will pay my bills and keep the workshop working (although I did make some sales too!), but the idea that 878 people would be curious enough to follow a link to look at something that I did fills me with awe.
The Facebook page now has twice as many likes from people I don't know as from my friends. People I have never met have shared my tweets. There is a slow trickle of folk joining my mailing list without me soliciting them to do so.
So, I think that means that if you're reading this there is every possibility that we don't know each other. Mental! Thank you.
