Happy 2012

Happy 2012! Hope you had a wonderful holiday season. I missed you all, and have been going through blogging withdrawals, but my hiatus was a big huge blessing. I gained clarity into what I should be doing with all my ventures. And I finally figured out how to position the brand of Marcie. Allow me a share just a bit.

  • Marcie Writes will soon be self-hosted.
  • I got rid of my Write Design Company and Shorty Twitter accounts. Follow me @Marcie_Hill
  • I’m going to share literary observations and celebrations, and will to try to make them as fun as possible. Your cooperation will be needed to make that happen.
  • I’m going to try my hand at humor writing and YOU will be the judges.
  • Expect more interviews with authors, writers and other literary geniuses.
  • AND, I forgot to mention that 80s Music is also one of my topics. I don’t know if I mentioned that I heart House Music. You will be seeing more.

That’s my vision for Marcie Writes.  Tuesday will still be our regular posting day; all other days will be extra. What would you like to see?

Check out My Interviews on The Write Design Company and Shorty

Progress Report

Remember I said I was going to start interviewing bloggers and business owners for The Write Design Company? Well, I started my blogger interviews at Blogging While Brown. I conducted an audio interview with Danyelle Little ~aka~ The Cubicle Chick and a video interview with Chrystal from the Duo Dishes.  They came out very well. I just have to learn how to wrap up my interviews.

Also, I have two audio interviews on Shorty: Your Chicago South Side Resource. The first is an audio interview with Claudette Redic, the Servant Leader for the Deborah Movement. This is a group of serving families of young victims of violence. I also had a chance to interview Tommy Perez, a Chicago-based actor who absolutely loves Comic Con.

I’m so excited to have just started. Just wanted to share my progress!
