Moving on up!

A year after taking a deep breath, quitting my corporate job and jumping into the deep end of freelance writing, I’ve finally gotten my act together and created a website for the whole thing. It all started five days ago when I got an inspiration for a header image design (think banner ad for the top of the website) of all things. Pretty soon Cecily was in on the act and she brought the AWESOME that had been somewhat missing from my design. Then I finally started writing down the words to describe my business that have been floating around in my head for the last year.

I’m very excited about the whole thing and can’t wait to hear what you all think of it. But when I give you the link, you’ll understand why there is a bittersweet aspect to it. I’ve grown to love my the1stdraft.com domain over the years of having this blog – so much so that I decided to transfer it to my business website. If you look at the web address for this blog now, you’ll see that it has changed to blog.the1stdraft.com. This will probably mean that I will lose a few readers who have simply bookmarked the address, but hey, maybe they will be delighted to discover that they too can have some of the Megan writing magic.

Anyone who has signed up as a follower to this blog should not be affected by the change, so hopefully you got your email about this post just like normal. I would say if you didn’t to let me know, but in that case you’re probably not reading this right now so I guess we’ll just have to hope for the best.

To make things just a little more confusing, I will also have more of a business type blog on my website. It will be completely separate from this blog and probably slightly less ridiculous. Sad, I know, but we don’t want to scare potential clients away right off the bat, do we? That just means I’ll still be saving all my ridiculousness for this blog, which I know you all are thrilled about.

In conclusion, to reach this blog in the future you should go to blog.the1stdraft.com. If you’re already subscribed, you don’t need to do anything differently. That being said, I would love it if you would go take a look at my new website at the1stdraft.com and share it with anyone and everyone you think might be interested in what I have to offer. Then you can come back here and tell me all about what you think in the comments section of this post. I can’t wait to hear your suggestions!

    Megs, sorry it’s taken me so long to respond. This has been an exceptionally tough and busy several weeks. I really like the visual and attitudinal dissonance between the lively and imaginative header and the very very elegant restraint of the body. Love the language. That’s pretty much it. Hope I didn’t hurt your feelings. xxoo

    • I’m sorry to hear it’s been rough, I hope things with your house are going easier. I was a little surprised I didn’t have a comment waiting for me the next morning from my best commenter, but not hurt – I knew it was coming! Really glad you like the site, I’m definitely going to be stealing that third sentence of yours because it is pretty much the best critique of a website I’ve ever read. Still hoping that Snickers and I can make our way to you guys sometime in late October but don’t want to get in the way of what sounds like a very hectic time for you!
