Well then, here we are! A heartfelt hello to you, and a big hello world! Welcome to the all new Anita Richards Designs website. It is exciting to be starting this new space and I’m anticipating a great journey here.
Lots of work ahead to build this website into a meaningful space with a true content blog, establish comprehensive Learn to DigiScrap resources, fill the virtual shelves of the Design Shop with quality products and run a few fun and a few socially significant projects. All of which brings me squarely to the focus of this post, this website and the year ahead.
Briefly, some of the social media and other online spaces that will be utilised to enhance your experience include: Facebook® and Instagram® (the virtual pigeon pair), Twitter®, Pinterest®, and Bloglovin’®. Plus, I am considering adding Tiktok® into the mix … who would have thought that that space would become a thing, but then that same was said of Facebook in the very early days. Boom.
Additionally, I will be using YouTube® and SoundCloud® to enhance and support the user experience in this space from time to time. YouTube is going to be a work in progress down the track but SoundCloud is good to go now and I have uploaded a few samples of my podcasts over there.
I will, however, be keeping all podcasts hosted here on the blog. More on that in the future. (Edited 2022, January 1: After discovering some issues with some sites scraping content and hotlinking, SoundCloud is the content delivery network that I have started using for all podcast hosting.)
For now though, if you would like to put the sound of my voice to my work, please be my guest and listen in on this brief sound byte:
LinkedIN® will also play a role which leads us to looking at things from the business perspective, so here’s a quick elevator pitch:
Inspiring people to create beautiful works of art that celebrate and preserve their precious family memories and life stories. Adoring what I do because it empowers my patrons to effortlessly dream up and bring into being elegant and stylish art, knowing that all my designs are lovingly crafted to suit their needs regardless of the subject theme.
The website structure and business model also incorporates a monetisation strategy including hardware and software products that are specifically curated for digital and hybrid scrapbooking, together with cameras, lenses and some of the related equipment needed to finesse your photography process in the first instance.
It is my deepest wish that you find the digital scrapbooking product offerings, the resources, the projects and the curated product recommendations meaningful, useful and above all inspiring to you in your digital scrapbooking journey.
I look forward to making the journey together with you.
Welcome one, welcome all.
