A Fresh Start
I have to admit that I am pretty darn excited to be starting on this new blogging journey. I started my orignal blog almost four years ago and have changed it's name and design quite a few times. But for the last year I just haven't been able to make it fun again.
I am a very visual person, and as a blog designer I feel that my blog should always reflect me, and be something that I would like my clients to see and use as a reference to whether they want to work with me or not. So I have tried new design after new design this past year and nothing ever reached that point for me. Then a week or so ago I was talking to someone on twitter and it hit me. I don't LOVE blogging anymore because I feel like I have outgrown my blog.
Of course, I am and ALWAYS will be Momma Bear. Just like Sydney will always be my Baby Bear. But I am starting to realize that I am so much more than just that. I need a place that I feel reflects me as a person and me as a designer.
Where does the name Tiki come from you ask??? Well as you already know my name is Tiffany. But if you are around my family in Georgia you will rarely hear people call me that. When I was about 12 years old my nephew was born. Then when he was starting to talk he couldn't say my name. I don't know where it stemmed from, but one day he called me Tiki. From that day on it just stuck. At first he was the only one who said it, then one day my family started. Next thing you know my friends are saying it as well. Then when my niece was born she said it too. So one little word that stemmed from an adorable little boy's mouth became my new nick name and will always stick with me. So now I am Tiffany, but I am also Tiki.
So here it is! My fresh start. I am excited to be starting a new blogging adventure and I just know that this will be one place that I will hopefully never outgrow.
