Putting it out there

Over the past week, I've been working to put together a small list of classes that I will be offering in my local Tampa Bay area.  It's been an interesting process- creating a newsletter  and a press release to mail out to contacts old and new- and then hitting SEND.  I'm sure for a lot of people that's just everyday marketing, but it's been a while since I've sent out a big mailing.  I've been receiving a lot of emails from old friends saying hello who are happy to see my latest work, and quite a few "unsubscribes", with mailchimp's funny little note- "maybe they're just not that into you".   The fact is that it feels good to just be putting myself out there again.  I've been a bit hesitant to begin teaching or holding classes again after a few years off, but I am finally feeling ready.  Now, we'll see if anyone shows up!   I plan to be there regardless.
