Firsts are Always Scary February 04 2015

It's true, isn't it? Firsts are a little bit scary. A little bit of intimidation and fear. What about the first day of school, or college, or starting a new job or business? Wow, we've all been there, haven't we? 

This is our first official blog for our new website. We have had so many firsts in our business. The first time I had our business cards printed. That was scary. I thought about what if no one liked our designs and we're stuck with all of these cute business cards -- 500 of these cute business cards. And then there was the first time I made a sale. The first time I saw the delight in a customer's eyes when we made them happy. The first time I walked into a customer's home to design something special for them. Our first trade show, our first market, and many, many more firsts we've had and I'm sure will experience in the future.

While this is not our FIRST website, it is the FIRST time I have taken the full responsibility for building it and maintaining it for the business. So I know there will be a bit of a learning curve. Bear with me as I try to figure out some of the logistics of web design and being a webmaster. And the saying there's a first time for everything is so true.

So what would rank as your favorite first? First kiss? First date? First child or grandchild? First time to skydive (not me, no not ever)? I would really love for our blog to be informative, interactive and fun. A place where we can all learn a few things together, discover new design ideas and trends, and share our thoughts with one another.

Thanks so much for reading our FIRST blog and let me know what topics might interest you. I want this blogging journey to be fun for all who join in with me.
