Hi! Welcome, and THANK YOU for dropping in.
If you’re reading this we most likely have a real-life connection that lead you over to this little corner of the web I now call sowhatdoyoudo.net. Thank you for indulging me in this new endeavor.
I’m so glad you’re here.
If you don’t know me, a little background: My passion and one true love, most days, is dance. I started dancing later in life than most, taking my first class at 12, gaining access to quality training at 14, and as an adult I still sometimes feel like I’m playing catch up. The dance world has opened some amazing doors, and connected me to some of the best people I know. The dance world can also be an unforgiving, frustrating, and at times a really lonely place. (If you can’t tell, I’m going through a dance rut, but that’s another post for another day and I PROMISE it won’t be a total downer.) One of the doors dance has opened for me is modeling, which is funny and fantastic because I’m 5’5″, athletic, curvy, and do not fit into sample sizes, BUT I’m doing the damn thing and I’m excited to see where it goes and what boundaries I can continue to push. Dance has also lead me to fall in love with the aerial arts, fitness, health, and cute athleisure wear, all of which I’m trying to put my own stamp on and shape into my brand.
It’s a work in progress. Aren’t we all?
So why am I blogging?
My intention is to share an honest look into the life of a freelance artist: the ups, downs, victories, struggles, and hopefully, humbly, impart a little wisdom along the way: things I’ve learned and am continuing to learn about the industry, how to create a work-life balance, and how to market yourself effectively.
I want to connect to people like me, and create a community for myself and others to bounce ideas, share, and vent. I also started this blog to create accountability for myself: a place where I can express, reflect, and keep track of my progress.
The idea for the name was born out of awkward introductions and small talk, and my total inability to answer the question “So, what do you do?” because, most of the time, I DON’T HAVE A BLOODY CLUE WHAT I’M DOING.
Now, at least, when people ask me, I can say, “..uhm, I’m still unclear, but I have a blog about it! Please read.”
Thanks so much for tuning in my loves! Next couple posts I have planned will be more substantial, and will each have their own theme. I’d love to hear from you. Drop me a comment: gimme some feedback, or ask me a question below.
I hope your weekend is magical! XO, Katie
