Setting Goals Part 2: Start something.


My nickname around this part of the world has become Artsy McCrafterson. I have a knack for making something from nothing, and I LOVE doing it. This is nothing new for me, but for Tanya… well, she seems amazed at all my little creations. She actually said I should start a crafting portfolio from just around our apartment. Interesting idea, eh?

Anyways, some of my creations have involved the following:

1. Making a Christmas tree from a house plant and doing it up right with gummy bears on a string for that extra burst of color it needed.

2. Making party decorations out of old colored papers we both had.

3. Making birthday party hats and a sceptor out of The Economist and old newspapers.

My mind constantly radiates creative ideas (hopefully that’s not a Chernobyl-related thing now), and if I don’t put those good ideas to use, I start to go a little crazy. This might be why I love playing around with my websites so much. I love colors, creating, and design, so this is where my next goal comes to play: start something you can continue to be creative with.

Over the past couple of years, I have been playing around with different web-based business ideas that I can really focus on and grow with. During this time, I have realized how much I really love building websites/blogs, so I think I finally figured out that a great idea to appease my creative mind and build a business is brought to you in the following form: Free Custom WordPress!

Yes, I will set up your WordPress blog, and you won’t have to lift a finger! I know, I know, a WordPress blog setup can be done for free, but what if you don’t have the time or know-how?! I’ll do it for you in a snap with that little extra bit of love that you won’t get anywhere else 😉 I’ll even help you customize your template to fit your blogging needs. All I ask is that you buy your hosting through my partner, (who I’ve been using for years now!), and we’ll be square.

Sound cool?

I’ve done this before for a few people, as you can tell from the website, and I really enjoyed the process. I am also constantly giving little tips and whatnot to other readers who send me emails. I’m sure they can attest to my abilities, right? 😉 Really, I want to take this seriously because it will 1) allow me to be creative, 2) force me to learn more about it all, and 3) help me get a little extra cash now and then. And as for you, you receive your own blog at your own domain with no fuss! Nice.

Thanks again, everyone, for reading, and I hope you can help me spread the word. We’ll see how this goes!

  1. Hi Brooke! I think this a fantastic idea! You are very creative and do incredible stuff. I encourage anyone to check out my site to see some of Brooke’s work.

    I had a pretty pathetic site and Brooke turned it into something amazing! WordPress may be free but it is not easy to get a professional looking site unless you know how to tweak and personalize it yourself. I was beyond frustrated before Brooke stepped in and helped me with it.

    Brooke can help you make a great looking site that you will be proud to blog on.

    Good luck girl! – Beth
