Clinks, I can understand about not opening up as much, but I am glad that you and so many others have found SH and it is working so well for all of you. I know you've had your ups and downs, but you and so many others are the ones I look up to here just because of your ability and creativeness as well as your successes here. I live for the creativeness here and need it a lot of the time, so I'm on board with being here because of the mental challenge as well as the great community, as it's been sometimes the only thing that's sometimes inspired me to keep with it through the frustrations.
Lorin, I definitely will let everyone know as I finish them. The book series is one that I have wanted to write since I was a teenager and I've gone to several publishers about the idea and they've all been obsessed with the idea but won't help until I at least have a manuscript to show, so I am working towards getting that first one done and hoping I can get someone interested. If not, I'm going the self-publishing route and going to do it through Amazon. I've heard of Quirky and have thought of getting on there but don't understand exactly how it works. I've had a few ideas for a long time that I'd love to be able to do on there, just need to figure out how it all works.
Lightless, I don't have as much going on as it seems, lol. Those are just the things I am able to do and offer as things I can do for others. So far I've only had a couple people actually reach out to me for said services but then again, I haven't been putting myself out there too much because of school and studies. Definitely going to be finishing my site here soon, though and that should help. As far as the logo contests, I would love to. I see all the logos and read all the contests and I'm so inspired, but unfortunately, I don't have Illustrator or other software which would be preferential compared to PS in order to do logos and unfortunately have no way of getting it finacially, at least thus far. I hope to someday, though, because I love doing that type of stuff and used to spend hours a day just doing blends and such in PS (i.e. stuff like this https://is05.ezphotoshare.com/2017/11/13/zCLOVv.jpg, just as an example)
Laura, lol I will, I will! I'm doing it in my spare time and when I am able to. (Oh, I may have to check into that, always need more things to read)
