The changes have been slow in coming, but, having overcome a few hurdles, I can finally say the new stuff at soulbearing.com is finally on the horizon.
The first page to get a makeover is the four leaf clover page. There are still a couple of things to add, but I think it is “finished for now”– and with a new product!!
The art pages are more involved, since each painting will have its own page with detail pictures. But, those are on the way– along with more paintings. For now, the “barebones” version is there for existing clients (and for new clients bold enough to purchase a painting from a single photo and basic description).
With much of the reorganization finished and with things better organized now, there are fewer tasks to juggle, so customers should be noticing the reduced handling time and faster shipping, plus more regular blog updates.
Which brings me to another coming change. The current plan is to move the blog to its own domain. I have a domain just sitting there redirecting people to soulbearing.com, and I think it is time to do something else with it. I don’t know how much hassle it is to set up, but “we’ll see”.
There is still a lot of work to do as the focus shifts more toward publicizing, but things seem to be falling into place now.
Many thanks to the friends, family, clients, and well-wishers who have provided encouragement, guidance, and sustenance during this transition from “mostly hobby” to “mostly livelihood”.
