Just what the world needs. One more blog, right? Bloggy blog blog.
When I first opened the doors to Miss Pickles Press back in 2008, (in addition to a pretty bare bones site), I also kept up a blog, along with other creative business owners venturing into the world of small business and online presence. Like most, I enjoyed it for a while but often felt like my labor of love was more about labor and less about love. Posting felt like a chore and the lapses between posts grew longer apart. Before I knew it, my well-intentioned but neglected little blog limped into the cobwebbed corner of the internets where all the other forgotten blogs went to die. Cue the tumbleweeds.
You might have noticed we have a completely new website. We've really spiffied things up for 2014 and couldn't be happier about it. Of note, we've really cleaned up our UI to make the site experience easier to navigate. We've added e-commerce functionality, too, which was something we felt was HUGELY lacking before now. And yes, we are back on ye olde blog bandwagon. Not because I feel like it's something we must do, but I have to admit that I like getting a little peek under the hood of my favorite companies, so maybe you do, too.
There is, however, one caveat. I've decided that I'm only going to post if I feel like it's worthy of sharing. We all have such busy lives, and ain't nobody got time for content that isn't engaging or entertaining or worthwile in some way. Sometimes it'll be personal peeks into daily life around here, and other times it'll be updates on special projects or new products. But my hope is that it'll always be worth a quick read.
With that – welcome to our new site! We're sure glad you're here. Drop us a line anytime!
