You may have noticed that we haven’t posted in a while and perhaps you are wondering what’s up. The short story is that after two years of rain here in Seattle, we had an awesome summer and I didn’t feel like blogging. The longer story is that this website was an experimental project I launched after the recession hit and had I lost a lot of my regular clients. Starting a website and learning social media and the digital side of the writing world seemed better than developing a daytime TV addiction, returning to bartending or finding an office job. And the experience has been great and I’ve learned a lot and made amazing connections and new friends. But 18 months later, work has picked back up. I’m teaching two classes, creating a couple of custom publications, doing lots of digital retail writing (thanks partially to this site!) and writing freelance stories for a handful of publications. I also have a few book pitches floating around that I hope turn into something interesting—and here’s something I haven’t done in a while: I’m working on a creative textile project. So whether I’ll pick back up with On This Day In Fashion remains unknown, but right now it’s looking unlikely that I will find the time in the near future. Check back occasionally and see what’s happening, otherwise, it’s been great sharing fashion history with you!!
