It’s Sunday, so if you are visiting us today you’re probably catching up on stuff you missed during the week. Maybe it’s been busy at work and you didn’t manage to check these blue polka dotted pages as religiously as you would through choice, or maybe your boss has been breathing down your neck meaning that a quick sneak onto RMW during work time has been trickier than usual. Or maybe you are the boss and you’ve actually had some work to do this week for a change.
Or, maybe you visit especially for the Sunday Post?… In which case you are one of our hard-core followers… one of the Elite shall we say?
So, for all you die-hard members of the RMW community, today I (Adam) and going to tell you a story about how I got to be in the glorious position of writing this here post to you that there reader! I’ll keep it short because it’s Sunday and no one wants to have to concentrate for too long on a Sunday…
I’ll start by saying this – everyone at team RMW has “proper” jobs, maybe not for too much longer(!) But currently we balance blogging with a 9 to 5. I happen to work with a certain plucky little blonde who one day in 2009 came up to me and said something along the lines of,
“Hi Adam… you’re good at websites and design and marketing and stuff aren’t you?…
…Well I have a bit of an idea…”
Since that day my life has somewhat changed. I’m still doing websites and design and marketing and stuff, but I’m balancing that with blogging and writing – something I have always wanted to do. I have just written my first piece for a magazine – It’s very small but it STILL COUNTS! It’s something I never thought I would get the chance to do and I’m really proud of it.
Also, for the record, I’m properly into weddings, which I know is rare for a chap (although I think Dan, one of our grooms from last week may well be a like minded spirit).
My day job focuses on detail, the look, the feel, the design, the appeal – and how those elements pull together when it matters most. You can see how transferable that is to your wedding day. I love seeing how a photographer captures a feeling, how stationery reflects a personality, how a venue sets the mood for an occasion. Maybe I didn’t see it until Charlotte hustled me onboard the RMW train, but I haven’t looked back since.
So where am I going with this? Well, nowhere really… I just thought that the hard-core Rock My Wedding Sunday readership might appreciate a little insight into what’s happening on planet Adam.
I’m pleased to be here, and I’m proud to be a part of the RMW community – it’s a very nice place to be.
Thanks for having me, and happy Sunday.
