You’ve likely seen the unicorn dabbing snapbacks I’ve been wearing of late. If you’re subscribed to my newsletter you likely know the story behind them but, if you aren’t (not sad just disappointed) then let me fill you in on what is going on:
I felt really burnt out towards the end of 2017. I felt over exposed. I felt like there was too much going on. I’ve worked extremely hard on this blog for a good while and it was rad to be offered to many incredible opportunities but it was draining me. There wasn’t enough time in the day to get it all done. I also just felt like it was too much. I started getting sick of me, so I can only imagine what you felt like.
Which is why I decided that in 2018 I was going to shake things up
I made a decision to be stricter with the brands I work with. Limiting it to longer term projects that allow me the freedom to be far more creative and do the content I want to do, rather than trying to fit a mould that I ultimately don’t fit in to. This year I’m being a bit more selective. Trying to focus on making stuff I hope you love and not bending. To make that happen I did two things:
The donation link
I’ve spoken about this before but basically, when you now watch my YouTube videos or live streams you can choose to “donate”. The money is going towards improving my set up, my editing and ensuring the stuff I make is better for you.
No, I’m not trying to Logan Paul it. I’m actually trying to find rad ways to make money while also ensuring what I create is beneficial and brings joy to someone’s life. So the caps were created. My brother’s girlfriend found inspiration from a few sources and then customised our own Dabbing Unicorn design. Hand drawn by her, we then digitised it and its now on caps. The idea is that whether you’re a Tech Girl or not, you’ll still love them.
The caps cost R300 and I’m selling them right here on the blog. You can purchase one here. And that’s really that. Now you know 🙂
