Hey, Thanks for stopping by.

Glad you’ve decided to stop by and check out my site. This effort has been a long time in the making. After years in corporate Information Technology working in web hosting environments, I’m now my own boss. Hoorah! Building an online business requires commitment and effort, but the end result is… Well, it’s “Designed Bliss”.  

I’m fascinated with content creation techniques and tools because I love creating and working with technology. 

All of my work experiences provided the background, interest, and effort of making Designed Bliss a reality.

A good friend kept encouraging me to teach about “all that computer stuff” as she put it.  She’s pretty non-techie so what I do seemed complicated (it’s really not).  

Her comments got me thinking.   I use a lot of different creative tools and techniques.  Perhaps what I know can help others create their visual content faster, easier and more affordably than ever. 

For me, creating great visual content is kind of like cooking in the kitchen;  creating a great meal requires multiple ingredients. Cooking a great meal requires multiple tools.

Creating great content is very similar.  Some folks are totally happy using paid tools like Adobe’s product suite, think Photoshop and Illustrator. Each does certain tasks extremely well but you wouldn’t use Illustrator to edit photo’s or images and you wouldn’t use Photoshop to create icon, logos or other types of vector images.

I don’t use pricy tools like Adobe to create my content. I use free tools that fit what I ultimately need to do. You may already be doing that and looking for more ideas on how to use them or you may just be starting out and need to know what’s available and what works best.

Creating content for social media or your website takes time; searching for how to do something to create content takes away valuable time. That’s were Designed Bliss shines. It’s the practical techniques and free tools that help make creating content easier.

Designed Bliss was started as a result of my techie background, experiences and goals as well as my desire to edit and create.  I hope my articles show you a few new ways of doing things, help you grow your online business and inspire you to keep at it even when you face challenges.

So I hope you too find your “designed bliss”.

All the best,   Martha
