So, yeah, it’s not Wednesday. Oops. I think this late OWWWP is a perfect time to share that I had a bit of a revelation the other day. I was sitting on the toilet when it suddenly occurred to me that I should just blog because I love it. And only blog about/post the things I like and want to spend my time and efforts on. It seemed like such a simple concept, but it honestly felt like the clouds had parted in my brain. There has been such an amazing response to what I’m doing here (which is pretty sweet because mostly I don’t know what I’m doing. What am I doing here?) and I want to keep writing for THOSE people, and me. The more I start to think strategy, and how to grow my presence, and try to “sell” something, the more I don’t want to do this anymore. I started PrettyRx with some pretty big goals. I really did not want to have to go out and get a “job” so at least HALF of the incentive to blog–and blog well–was to make it my primary source of income. But here’s the thing, PrettyRx is not making any money and people are really responding to it. As my proverbial plate fills up I have to reassess my priorities. PrettyRx means a lot to me, and it makes me really happy, and the idea that I can completely and 100% own it and do whatever I want with it BECAUSE I have no intention of selling it… well, that makes me extra happy. SO here ya go: the same old PrettyRx with a new attitude–IDGAF. And let’s be honest, millennial are tired of being marketed to, that’s so my parents’ generation (also, I freaking HATE the word millennial and all of its connotations).
