Success is a silly word. I’ve learned that stopping to reflect and self-define a meaning for success is vital if you want to art (as a living).Read More
I'm live! GUYS. I AM LIVE! When you enter 'www.theoddbear.com' (or even just theoddbear.com, the internet has come a long way, man) you actually arrive HERE! YOU. You, as in real people, can actually enter my website, and see it. Do you realize what this means? It means I conquered the internet! With absolutely no aptitude, and with every mistake possible (some repeatedly), I have managed to build my own website. If there is any task in life that makes you want to put your head under the covers and never look at the sky again, you can relate to how I felt (feel) about website building. And the spiralling anxiety from having to do something I'm not good/capable at was getting pretty bad: "How am ever going to be a successful entrepreneur if I can't bleeping upload images"...."Have I foolishly invested all of my time and resources into something that is doomed"..."How can I be worthy of love if I can't even build a website"...."I'm going to die alone with broken URLs and a cat"
I know the pages are empty, I know it may (definitely isn't) the wisest to launch my site live when it isn't complete, but the harsh truth is that simply making the URL work took me a week. Getting all these pages put together is going to take me just shy of a lifetime... But I hope you keep stopping by! I hope you wander through and see the nifty changes Imma be making, and read the little stories Imma be posting here on the daily. Sometimes I'll write about this, sometimes I'll write about that, but I will always be happy to see (read) you. Welcome to Ma House. I hope you like it here.
The above video is an excerpt of how I chose to celebrate my successfully launching a website.
