When I started freelancing full-time in 2009 my clientele was mostly other female bloggers like myself who wanted beautiful blogs. I decided to name my company Make My Blog Pretty to catch the attention of my audience because it declared what I did in simple terms, setting me apart from other web designers.
However, both the work I do and the tools I use have evolved over the years. I’ve found myself working for a greater variety of clients, not just women who want pretty blogs. And while design is still an essential part of my work, I’ve found myself focusing more on development. As a result, the name Make My Blog Pretty has become too narrow a definition of what I do.
For those reasons I’ve changed the name of my company to Makeworthy Media. Even though I no longer work solely on blogs nor do I just make things pretty, my main focus is still on making things. I like to make beautiful, functional web sites that are worth visiting and exploring, sites that are Makeworthy. Although the name has changed, everything else about my business will remain the same.
If you have any questions, feel free to contact me at my new email address firstname.lastname@example.org Emails sent to my old email address will be forwarded to the new one.
The first five years working under the name Make My Blog Pretty have been worthwhile and rewarding. I look forward to the next five years or more creating Makeworthy Media!
