I woke up this morning with the goal of getting something important done. I figured 'something important' would be a step...or literally any step really toward building a website for Once Upon a Reality Productions. I turned on the Disney music, pounded 3 cups of coffee, filled my canister or H20, posted on Facebook that I would be doing this to hold myself accountable, and here I am...6 hours later stuck as heck. I've been going back and forth between Wix, Squarespace, and debating whether I should have a website at all.
Theatre Production companies don't need those, right?
I just tend to think 100 steps ahead instead of just focusing on the baby steps. Then, in my frustration, I noticed the blog option on this website. Something I hadn't even remotely thought about doing, but I thought, maybe, just maybe, other people experience the same obstacles as me. And I can share as I go. And maybe this documented journey will help me see if I grow and help me to trace my steps toward success when I get super frustrated.
Today I tried to build a website.
Today I looked at maybe 20 other people's website.
Today I browsed through 100 templates.
Today I decided that maybe I would learn typography or Indesign, all before settling on what you're probably looking at now.
Websites are hard.
But I have faith in my ability to do this somehow. Because at the end of the day, I want to have my community here where you guys can see this work and this team that I'm trying to build. And it's all got to start somewhere.
So, here's to trying, and maybe inspiring. Wish me luck.
