OMG!!! I can't believe it's been another few months… again… And again, I have NO good excuse for the gap. I did learn more this time, so it wasn’t a complete loss. It’s been so long that I don’t even remember what happened anymore, seriously. All I know is in the meantime, I got a bigger vision for the blog and my store. With the time came more storytimes of course, a lot of instances for inspiration and, I finally decided to branch out with my content topics. It’s soooooo much that's happened between October ‘19 and now, May ‘20. The most obvious is this shutdown that’s been going on for almost 2 months now. Needless to say, we’ve got a lot of catching up to do and I cannot wait to get into everything.
Lanesha Lesha Blogs and Looks Hair & Apparel are growing up and have split! I wanted to make sure that there was enough room to incorporate all the expansions I wanted to make for you guys. We now have the website all to ourselves to chat and hangout, plus we have our own independent design! I wanted to keep a color scheme that’s easy on the eyes but simple, so the content could be the center of attention. Since it’s not so crowded, I’ve been able to add on some galleries, more topic categories, and I’m even looking into adding some supplemental videos clips. The ultimate goal is to try and get a video out for one blog a week either expanding on a blog topic or possibly a new bonus series. (*keep an eye out for my Youtube debut, hint hint*) For now tho, you have my full attention and we aren’t having anymore unscheduled breaks, Deal? Deal.
Back to what I learned this time. So I know I mentioned planning ahead, I learned that 2 weeks isn’t a long time from a business perspective. All “planning” should actually be for 30 days, and here’s the catch. Planned for 30 days actually means 30 days of work completed. No matter what happens in the next 30 days, everything is already done and rolling out. What I was doing was projecting. I knew what I wanted to do, or thought I wanted to do, but no work had been done. I learned that projections should be for at least 90 days. And even then the work should be outlined so it just needs to be completed. The only thing I had down was backlogging. You should be working on new idea concepts everyday, if you’re in entertainment. The key to backlogging tho, is following up with that idea and transitioning it to the projection phase. I figured, “I got a list of things I can do, It’ll come to me that day”, WRONG. So, that’s probably what happened again, don’t quote me on that.
Anywho, I’m glad to be back, I’m excited for all the content rolling out, and I hope y’all enjoy the new take on the blog. We talkin’ bout a lil bit of errythang, nothing is off limits. I will be keeping the original post schedule of Mondays, Wednesday, and Fridays at 6PM eastern. Also, I decided to keep the concept of Lanesha’s Closet on the blog. I also have some custom items in the works that will be available exclusively here on the blog. If you’re looking for typical apparel items, they will be on the Looks website. I think that's everything for now so poke around the new site, and be sure to sign up for the new mailing list so you can be notified of anything new going on with the blog. Thanks again for sticking around, I love you all, enjoy!
