Hi Maricel here, welcome to slitsight!
My story is quite long and messy, this blog/website was intended to be about photography in the early days. Then things changed.
After university I thought I was finally ready to get the job of my life, after all this hard work. I was happy and full of expectations. How naive!! I ended doing the same old jobs I was doing before I started, this was painful and very disappointing.
I kept my hopes high for some time, maybe too long.
I didn’t pass any single interview, I don’t know what I said or what I didn’t say but the true is I was getting tired of the rejections letters in my inbox.
I did few nice projects here and there but nothing really major.
Finally, in 2016 I gave this blog the attention it deserved.
I began researching how to make money online, how to build a successful WordPress site, the best hosting platforms, content marketing, SEO and so on.
The online community was opening right in front of me, I had to figure out how to pull things together.
Let me tell you a secret, it takes a hell of a lot of time, you’re going to make hundred of mistakes, some days you’re going to feel incredibly frustrated, you just will want to pull the plug and run away.
The number of visitors is going to be tiny, friends and family were my main visitors. And grow is painfully slow. But the good news is we are creatives we can do this. After all, we love what we do.
I’m still learning, this is a way of life.
Thankfully my curiosity has taken me to places otherwise I would had never seen. I really believe you can make things happen, if you put your heart and soul in what you do.
The harder part is already done, if you’re reading this is because you have an idea in mind, you just need to gather more info, before jump in.
Listen things keep changing extremely fast, that’s why we’re here in the first place.
The old world is dying, the way we consume and share information is very different from 10 years ago.
What’s more, communication keeps evolving. This is exciting, although it can be a bit overwhelming.
Sometimes, we don’t know how to connect the dots, but there is another way of doing things.
Here I post about the stuff I learn, I’m not claiming to be an expert, but I do my best to support other creatives who are trying to find their ways in this new economy.
This site celebrates a world where we can all work together.
Here I share projects, ideas, information and some clues about culture and technology.
Hopefully you’ll get inspired.
All the best with your journey xx
