Hi Maricel here, welcome to slitsight!
My mission is to help you become independent and create your own creative brand. My story is quite long and messy, this blog/website was intended to be about photography. 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 very painful. 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 truth is I was getting tired of the rejections letters in my inbox. Then, my mum passed away, and my father was already gone, so things were a bit sucky. I was sad, broke and hopeless for some time. Then, in 2016 I decided to give this blog the attention it deserved.
The process of migrating the blog from Blogspot to WordPress wasn’t really hard, I learnt everything online ( still doing). 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 put things together. Let me tell you a secret, it takes a hell of a lot of time, you’re going to make a ton of mistakes, some days you’re going to feel incredibly frustrated, you just want to pull the plug and run away. But the good news is we are creatives we can do this. After all, we love what we do.
I’m still learning, everyday there is something new to learn. And things change very fast, when you think you’ve mastered a topic booooooom the next day everything is different and you have to start all over again.
Here, I share insights about tech/apps/coding/website builders/WordPress/CSS/HTML
Photography, Branding, MVP’s
Life hacks, writing content, writers, and cool books

All the best with your journey ….the restless monkey xx
