Creating a website is totally not for the meek. I am a procrastinating perfectionist with minimal techie skills. Thus my week long break to create the page has turned into last minute all-nighter to get it all together. However, I work best under pressure and when the house is QUIET.
Speaking of minimal techie skills - I have learned SO much since starting this process. Only one or two tantrums involving swearing at the laptop. :-) Developing this site has really energized my creative juices and helped me gain perspective of where our business has been and where I want to be. I hope that is communicated effectively through the site.
After much debate, I decided to create our website personally because I feel that our website is tremendously personal. I have enjoyed digging through photos of our first kitchens, pieces of furniture, our garage, our shop, our dogs, etc.
I will admit that I may have glanced at a few competitors' sites. I'm not sure if I wanted to compare or just make sure I was on the right track. I found myself getting catty and annoyed (hey, it's human nature). I immediately clicked the X and vowed to not return to certain sites. I went to a few of my idols/mentors' sites for inspiration instead. Go Sisterhood!
Our site is going to be a lot like our Facebook page. I want to continue with being 100% authentic and share bits of our personal life where I can. That's where this blog will come in. My goal is to post at least two or three times a week. Hold me accountable by leaving comments. :)
I am Ashley Hall - Owner/Designer of Lexie and the Chi. Every single day is an adventure. My husband and I often feel like we should SO have our own reality show. Since we do not have a camera crew following us around - this blog will have to do. The good, the bad and the sometimes really ugly. :)
