Blogging is hard, y’all.
I’ve been blogging for years. Under various websites and names – Chocolate Milkk!, Qwirkie, Kyrie Elayne Web Design, etc. And it’s never really gone anywhere. I just spend time writing out articles that next-to-nobody reads, and go months without updating anything.
Well today, that changes.
Qwirkie was cute. But I bought the domain name when I was 17, going on 18, and wanted something ~fun~ and ~edgy~ and ~unique~. Now, six-ish years later, I don’t feel like it’s representative of me and what I want to accomplish with this blog.
But there’s this issue where my full name, Kyrie Tompkins-Overlock, is waaayyy too long to use as a URL.
So, I did what I do with my signature – I abbreviated it to Kyrie T-O. Quick, simple, very me, and easy to type!
I wanted to pivot Qwirkie into a lifestyle blog. I still think that’s the goal – I want to share peeks into my life and my home.
But I’m also planning to blog about running a business from home. So many people have talents and could be using them to make bank while they’re at home, but don’t know where to start. As someone who’s been doing it for their entire career, I feel like I’m uniquely positioned to share what I’ve learned on life, blogging, and business.
Topics like starting a blog, buying domain names, finding clients/customers – these are all things I’ve done, and struggled with, and can provide some insight into.
I want to share what I know, and connect with like-minded people who I can grow with.
