Wayfarer – Then and Now
Phew, I only started Wayfarer last year, but it feels like a lifetime ago, doesn’t it? So much has changed since then. But over the past few months, I’ve been transitioning and growing in place where I’m feeling really confident in my work, my process, and have a clear vision of where Wayfarer is headed.
With this the recent redesign of my website, I wanted to rethink my blog as well. Over the summer, I wasn’t feeling inspired to blog at all. I felt like I had started blogging because it was the thing to do, not necessarily because I had anything to say. It all just seemed premature – I was trying to write about things that I was still figuring out and the words just weren’t coming. So I gave myself permission to take a break, knowing that the urge to write would come naturally when I was more ready. Not having to worry about blogging was a huge weight off my shoulders and I’ve enjoyed that freedom so much. But over the past few weeks, I’ve noticed myself wanting to share more and more. My Instagram captions have gotten longer and longer (sorry, I have a serious rambling problem). I’ve even been posting on my Instagram story which I never do! Something has changed inside me that’s given me a yearning to share, and I’ve taken that as my que that it’s time to start blogging again. I’m not just some scared little girl trying to run a business anymore. I’m in a good place. I know (a few) things. And I’m so excited to share them with you!
So welcome to the new Wayfarer blog! I’m so glad that you’re here! My hope for this space is that it will be an honest reflection of my journey as a business owner, designer, and traveler. Here are the three main categories that I’ll be writing about:
This is where I’ll be sharing new projects – both in progress and launched. I get to work with some really amazing people, so I’ll be highlighting what they do as well, possibly with some interviews. I might be sharing some designer insights here as well, exploring my process, why design matters, and things to know when working with a designer.
When I started, I knew nothing about running a business. It’s been a really funny transition from college student to business owner, but I’ve learned quite a bit. I’ll try to be educational and informative in this category, but be warned that it’ll probably be more like ‘This is what I’ve done and I don’t know if it’s the best way, but it works for me so find what works for you and run with it.’
Life + Travel
This category will be more personal, but I have a lot to share because our life isn’t very typical. I’m going to be very open and honest about what it’s like to be a nomad, highlighting both the insta-worthy parts and the not so insta-worthy.
And that’s about it! I’m so excited to jump into this again and share with you all in a way that finally feels natural. This Friday, I’ll be talking about my daily routine, showing you exactly what my work days look like! (Spoiler alert, it’s not very organized and changes constantly, but I’ll explain why I like it that way.) But until then, check my Instagram to see what I’m working on this week. 🙂
