11.11 It's Been a Year

11.11 It's Been a Year

November 10, 2014 0 Comments

I can't believe it's been a year since I started the Big Cartel site. It's been so fun to grow the characters and the store.

I started documenting things I've learned along the way starting in June, and even in these last five months I look back and it's humbling and exciting to see how much I didn't know, and still have yet to learn. I decided to take on this overhaul of the site to coincide with this "anniversary," and it's required a lot of self-imposed hermitting during nights and on the weekends the past month (sorry, friends!). I really wanted to create a proper place to house the characters and give it room to grow.

Also, I enjoy building websites. I realized I grew up drawing and building websites (in HTML on Geocities, for anyone who remembers that, although I must say customizable templates are infinitely more awesome so I can focus on the content). I built them for myself and friends before there was anything like Facebook or Wordpress. I did it because it was fun for me, but I didn't even think for a second of pursuing it as a career. Same goes for drawing. I think the path I went down led me to where I am today, so I don't regret any of it. But it is interesting how it is has come back to this!

Thanks your for all your support, without it I certainly wouldn't have the motivation to continue on with this story. I am so eternally grateful.

TL;DR Summary: It's been an eye-opening year. Thank you so, so much.
