Welcome to our website!
Happy new year everyone - welcome to a new decade and indeed welcome to our website if you haven't been before. I think they are calling this new decade the #roaringtwenties so it will definitely be interesting to see if it pans out like that. Lots of talk around about the #tenyearchallenge and I have read some very interesting decade reviews over this last couple of days. I always find it hard to look back and review, but I am making a concerted effort to do it more. Particularly to help me and AB to grow and improve this year.
Ten years ago, both Paul and I were very different people and that's a good thing. If we hadn't have had some of the experiences we had, we probably wouldn't have had the courage to start this business and it has been one of the best things we have ever done.
If you have been before, welcome back to the new and improved Auburn Black site. We've had a little bit of a spruce up and hope that you find what you are looking for.
In the spirit of honesty, I should disclose that this is my second attempt at blogging and after my first blog in 2018, I haven't written one since. However, I feel that 2020 is the right time for me to try again and so here I am.
So I think that the reason the blog didn't really work too well the first time was because I didn't have a good enough reason for writing it. It just seemed like the right thing to do for a small business. This time round, I have a reason why. It's about making things better for you, our customers. We want to share upcoming projects, give you ideas on how to improve your home or plan for your event and even better (I think!), we want to start showing you how to use and apply our decals.
The plan is to write a monthly blog, but if I can write more often, or come up with an idea that just can't wait, then I will let you know. And I would definitely love to hear from you; your thoughts on the blog itself or comments and questions about what we offer. They are welcome any time. I am also hoping as time goes on to be able to invite guest bloggers to contribute on the site - these might be other small businesses that I feel have something to offer or one of you might want to come on and share your story.
For this year my goal is to write consistently and build the readership of this blog, using your thoughts to help us improve. And I'm also hoping to have had a few guest posts by the start of 2021.
And as a little extra special bonus for all of those reading this, please use this code #auburnblack to get 15% off your website orders until Jan 15th.
Today is the first page of a new book - write a good one!
