Well hello there, readers. It’s been quiet around here lately, as you may have noticed. Quiet, but not abandoned. Nor forgotten.
Since April 2013, Créatrice Mondial has been my personal space to explore and experiment. It’s started as a design blog, then a travel blog, then a travel blog business. It’s changed looks and function and design, and now, it’s about to change again.
As of July, life as I knew it for ages changed dramatically. I turned in the freedom of the freelance schedule, and swapped it in for full-time office life. In a world where so many are striving to make it as a nomadic entrepreneur, I did the opposite. Why? Well, let’s just say that when the perfect opportunity presents itself, you book that ticket.
In July I took a position as the creative director for a luxury travel company in Miami. If ever there was a job that was made just for me, this would be it. It’s busy, it’s hectic, and it currently involves a rather lengthy commute from Fort Lauderdale each day, but it’s fantastic. Every day, I get to combine my creative skills with my passion for jaunting around the world, and work with a team just as hooked on travel as I am.
And, naturally, my schedule has changed. So has the amount of time I have available to tend to other projects, such as this blog. I’m not giving it up completely – it’s become an integral part of my identity in the digital sphere. But I am altering my approach to blogging, and how best to tend to and nurture the Global Creator community.
Créatrice Mondial has its roots as a personal blog, and I’m feeling the urge to head back in that direction. To use this space to share more of my thoughts, and more glimpses into my own experiences that perhaps a reader may find interesting. In short, a more reflective blog, and a place I can use as a creative outlet on whatever happens to be in my head at the time.
Some things are meant to last forever, and some things are meant to morph as they age. That’s learning to ride the waves with grace, as adaptation is never failure.
And I hope some of you will stick around for this next phase in the journey.
