Hi all! I wanted to give you an update about my life and crochet career. I just realized this is going to be my very first personal blog post other than my crochet patterns. I have some super exciting news to share. As of January first I quit my jobs to start for myself. Next year I will focus full time on designing crochet patterns and running my blog(s). This is work that can be done from home and therefore easy to combine with some traveling, something I will do a lot next year, more about that later this week!
For the last two years I was quite busy. I worked part-time, finished a full time master of science and worked on my website wilmade.com. I only had limited time to work on my blog and patterns – mostly evenings and weekends – and I wasn’t able to create and publish as much patterns as I wanted. But nevertheless things worked out great. I achieved higher numbers, website visitors and collaborations than I hoped for and later in 2017 this crazy hobby of mine got out of hand. So I decided to create more time next year and focus full time on my crochet blog! And the time is FINALLY there!
Last week was my last week at work – a very special week actually because I was at a conference in Swiss, which was a nice experience. I worked four days a week at a communication and PR department. My work mainly focused on managing websites, social media and organizing events. I will certainly miss my colleagues, but I am also looking forward to my next adventure. Finally I will be an officially registered entrepreneur, something I’ve always wanted.
So what this basically means for you: more often new crochet patterns for free here on my blog! 🙂 Yiiihaaaa can’t wait, I’ve had so many ideas the last few months but simply did not have time to work on it. First I am going to enjoy the holidays and then it’s time to enjoy the creative life to the fullest!
Merry Christmas everyone! x
