When I was in school for graphic design, I had to take a printing class. We learned about the whole process from start to finish. I found it fascinating and enjoyed the class. We design business cards, letterheads and brochures to name a few.
My teacher actually used to own a print shop so he was very knowledgeable about the print process. Everyone got a chance to run the presses so we got hands on experience. We also got to visit a print shop and take a tour. This class was valuable after I graduated and designed things for clients.
For a while, I worked in a print shop, but as a customer service agent. The only printing I did there was on copy machines, but it was still fun. I wanted to move into a design position but I just could not stand being in a customer service position as I had at one time worked for twelve years in the grocery business where had experienced loaves of bread hurled at me and customers cussing me out.
Anyway, I am still very interested in design and print. I found my knowledge helpful when I started blogging and freelance every now and then. Unfortunately, I do not live in a city that has many design firms. Still, I am glad I have the design and print knowledge.

My Internet time has become severely limited. I am sure you know what I mean. I really want to spend more time posting and I have some ideas for what direction I want to take this blog but my time is limited now.
Not to mention I have two other websites I am posting to: Parent’s Zone I am ProudMom3 there.
Also I am writing for Helium.com and making a little money doing it.
So I am pretty busy. But I plan to revamp my blog including new graphics which I intend to try and make myself and include some regular features. One of which I will call Post-It Notes. This will just be a small observation of the day.
So bear with me and if anyone has any advice for me say on making my own graphics or suggestions for permanent topics I would love to hear from you. I have a degree in Graphic Design but have been away from it for a few years and I am not sure about designing for blogs. So I am open to any advice.
