Some people love her. Some people hate her. But there is no denying that Oprah has changed the face of the television medium. I do DVR her show, and watch the episodes that sound appealing. One of the things she often says is a quote from Maya Angelou, “When You Know Better, You Do Better”. In reference to my life, and this blog, this is super true. I have no hesitation in stopping and running in a new direction if I find a newer, better, faster, or easier way to do things. Why work harder? Why do something the long way? Now don’t get me wrong, we should all learn long division and how it works prior to getting calculator privileges. In all honesty though, I don’t know many adults that could do without their cellphone calcs (or their TIs for the super geeks of the world like my hubs and my mama who carry them around in their gear everyday)!
So what’s this have to do with WickedKate? Well I received an email the other day from a reader saying that every time they come to my site, there is something new or different! I’m pretty sure that was a compliment. I’ve also gotten “It’s great! Leave it alone!” from more than one source. Here’s why I keep changing it: I’m just now comfortable with how it looks. This is a representation of me, and right now I am building my online business PageLauncher to create sites for small businesses and individuals who want to get their sites off the ground but don’t know how. In starting this adventure, I need opportunities to practice. Like the baker who tests out his wares on his family before going “live”, I must try different techniques on my sites to know if they “work” or not in the public arena! If I wouldn’t put it on my site, unless it’s specifically asked for, why would I do it to someone else?! So there you have it. That’s why it keeps changing. Because really, that the only constant in life; Change. I was worried about if I would lose readers, but really most of you are my friends and will stick around. If not, you aren’t really my audience anyway. I want readers who want to do their best in life and who are looking for ways to either improve or appreciate the life they lead, even if that means just a smile for a moment. So I’m gonna keep on keepin’ on, and if that means that maybe there will be a few changes around here, so be it. It’s my blog. I can do what I want, right?!
“The only constant is change, continuing change, inevitable change, that is the dominant factor in society today. No sensible decision can be made any longer without taking into account not only the world as it is, but the world as it will be”. — Isaac Asimov
