Getting my mojo back

Have you ever had a scare in pursuing a passion? I had one last year with inventing where I got flash burned. I didn’t go blind, but I took that as a sign to pursue my writing more. Now I am starting back slowly with experimenting, but it’s definitely taken a back seat to everything else.

The Name Game

How did you come up with a name for your business? What tools did you use? For me, when I was starting out, I did a combination of Google keyword searches and checking domain availabilities. I tried to find the right combination for my tea business, Teazzed, and my newly written book, Black Cat Scribbles Vol. 1. In the end, I was happy with those name choices, but ultimately combined them on MGSpear.com. Did your name end up working for you?

Nerd Alert

Broke, but want to start your business? Ever considered using Microsoft Office to make graphics and perfect documents? That’s how I started out. I have added more tools to my arsenal since those early days, like PhotoShop and GIMP, but Office still is at the core of my operations: after all, I am a writer.
