evidence of evolution: my blog over the years + giveaway winners announced!

Sep 14, 2012 | Entrepreneurship, Life in Progress

I started this blog in 2005. Above is what it looked like in the Spring of 2006. And yes, that is one of my first paintings ever – major evidence of evolution. Thank goodness for forward motion. For progress. For dreams. 

Above is what this space looked like in 2007

And then again in 2008.

2009 brought a full-on overhaul.

2011 brought another blog renovation.
I’m a believer in looking back so we can see the evidence of progress. I also recently discovered this site that allows you to travel back in time and see what your sites (or any site, for that matter) looked like way back when. I have been thinking about my way back when lately, and seeking new ways of using that time for progress today. I’ve got a little something up my sleeve. Can’t wait to share when the time is right. 
Sending out bravos to all of you today. For your progress. For your evolution. Keep moving forward. One small step at a time! 
And the giveaways go to…
One person will receive a spot in Eileen Nishi’s {eye} wonder e-course.

    I must say that when I discovered Kelly Rae Roberts' art work it was by accident. I had chosen a picture that I found on a Facebook quotes page and fell in love with it. <3 I went on to find the author's name, as it was for some reason not named (maybe because they may have cropped it or seomthing) and as soon as I found who the artist was I was ecstatic! 😉 Kelly Rae Roberts, you are an amazing artist at heart, mind, & soul.

    How fun! I didn't realize how long I've been reading your blog. I remember the 2007 design. Thanks for the reminder to look back on previous work. Definitely a great way to recognize progress.

    Wow Kelly, thanks so much for sharing your evolution with us. It's quite an inspiration for someone who is just getting started. It's encouraging to know that if I stick with it I will continue to grow and evolve toward my goals and dreams. Hopefully in a few years I can look back and appreciate my very humble beginnings. 🙂
