I remember the day I launched The Grey Backpack. It was the day I was going to take over the world! Unfortunately, my website looked like hot garbage. But that’s what happens when you build something the first time – the first generation is typically never what you want it to be. But that didn’t stop me from blogging and walking down a path of continuous iteration. Each redesign brought me closer to building the site that I could see in my mind, but could not build with my hands. A website that not only hosted my written work, but a place to share my true vision of what I wanted to the platform to be. Today, I’m happy to announce that the dream and the reality are finally coming together. What could only be considered as fate, I’ve linked up with MOKO, a design company based in Atlanta to help me bring my ideas to life. Consider this The Grey Backpack 2.0.
So what can you expect when the site launches? New content, apparel and a few new ventures that I’m sure will become a welcomed and pleasant surprise for those who’ve followed me on this journey. Over the next few days I will begin discussing what this new design is all about in greater detail. What you need to know right now – my dreams are finally becoming a reality and I’m glad you’re along for the ride.
