Hi. My name’s Karen. I came to The Art of Doing Stuff because I wanted a creative outlet where no one would tell me what I could or couldn’t say.
That’s how *I* got to The Art of Doing Stuff.
I’m always curious about how you got here. I know most of you probably won’t remember how you got here. It’s not like it was a life changing moment for you like the birth of your child or the delivery of your first washer and dryer.
But I’m sure some of you remember how you happened upon The Art of Doing Stuff. Whether it was from one of my DIYs on Design*Sponge, or a Google search for how to cure a yeast infection.
You might be curious about why I’m curious about how you got here. Well for two reasons actually. The first being, I’m just plain curious. It’s my nature. Sometimes it works for me sometimes it’s an embarrassment to those around me. If I’m in a restaurant and I like their dishes I have no problem lifting the plate over my head to see if it’s marked on the bottom or tracking down the owner to ask them. I ask questions, peek in people’s windows and never stop wondering about stuff. You don’t wanna be anywhere near me when there’s a room full of men with kilts on.
But the second reason I’d like to know how you got here is because it might help me in building up the readership of The Art of Doing Stuff.
You might be able to let me in on information I had no idea about. Like maybe I have a bigger Youtube following than I thought. Or maybe most of you reading this came here from Pinterest.
As a blogger, I have some idea of how people get to my site through things like Google Analytics, which is a site that analyzes all of your website data including how people came to your site, how long they stayed and how many pages they viewed. Don’t worry. I have no idea who the people are, just general information like the city the views came from. And whether you’re wearing your underwear inside out.
So if you remember, let me know how you came to this site AND … why’d you come back? Do you like learning stuff? Or is it the writing (kay, not the writing of this particular post which is verging on the dullest post I’ve ever slammed out).
This isn’t an Oh, Karen! You’re so GREAT post. Because you know I am, I know I am and everyone I tell knows I am. What this is, is figuring out how to make the site better for you and for me. Karen. The Great One. Wayne Gretzky stole that from me by the way and we’re still in litigation over it. I’ve promised to knit his daughter a baggy head to toe Icelandic sweater if he promises to drop the lawsuit.
Have a good weekend!
