Let's Catch Up

I've been updating other parts of this website, and realized I haven't posted a blog entry since February! Where does the time go? 

I've begun a whole new chapter of my life - self-employment. Yes, at the young age of 25, I have experienced a department elimination and subsequently, a layoff. It's a life experience not many 25-year-olds can say they've had and I'm happy to venture these uncharted waters. 

Turns out, I was good at my job. My clients wanted me to continue delivering social media services and word has spread. So now, I'm figuring out this whole "working-for-myself" situation. It's been quite exciting! I think I finally have the rhythm down and can now get back to blogging regularly for myself. My priority list goes to where the money is, so clients get blog posts before I do ;).

I launched a Facebook page for my business. I hope to use Facebook ads to draw in more clients. You can check it out here: https://www.facebook.com/pages/Jordan-Alyssa/384994355040331

Feel free to give it a "like"... I really want to change that URL and I can't until I get enough "likes." :)

In other news, as you may recall, I've decided I want to be familiar with html coding and developing in general. I've chosen Django as my learning platform and will be beginning tutorials from the codeacademy within the next week or so. I was recently featured at DjangoCon and you can see the slides here: https://speakerdeck.com/annaoz/django-tales-how-django-and-its-community-can-change-lives 

And finally, I am making progress on the learning to sew front as well. I've purchased a pattern and found someone who will begin walking me through the process. I'm starting with children's clothes... so if you know any... 

And that about wraps up my catch up. Baha! I'll be back soon with my next Top 5!
