OK, so this no updating business has gotten a little ridiculous. The good news is that I’m still very much alive and active within the design community. The bad news is that between running my more lucrative websites and keeping up with my clients I simply have no spare time for blogging here.
However, things are going great for me. I’ve amassed a HUGE number of clients since I last posted, and will be updating my portfolio soon. I also feel like I’ve grown a lot as a designer, and become a lot less naive in regards to many things online. PSDFAN.com is doing fantastically. It’s currently pulling around 125,000 unique visitors each month, and has gained over 1000 RSS Subscribers as of yesterday. Both of these things are more than I could ever have hoped for in such a small space of time.
As for PushStandards, it obviously can’t go on in this dormant state. To my potential clients it looks desolate and as if nobody is running this blog or accepting design work. To my readers (if I have many left) - well they can’t be expected to wait months between posts. So… here’s the plan:
I’m going to relaunch PushStandards in the near future, but as a portfolio only website. That means no blogging, and most likely just a simple contact form, examples of my work and some testimonials. I’m thinking about actually going for a cool 1 page layout that contains all this information.
As for the blogging part, I’ve never been a big fan of personal blogs (hence I always blogged about design, blogging or business here), but I might set up a personal blog just to give more frequent, but shorter updates about what I’m up to. If you want updates on design and the design industry in general then I recommend that you check out psdfan, as I’m also posting this kind of thing fairly frequently as well as the regular Photoshop tutorials.
So I guess just hold tight until the new design comes through. I don’t want to give a time frame on this as like I said I’m pretty busy these days. However, I am keen to get this new portfolio set up asap, so hopefully it won’t take me forever to come up with the design etc…
Thanks for dropping by,
