    I seem to have become a small business person by accident, but now I’m here, I may as well say hi!

    I’ve been running my own websites for years as a hobby, but didn’t realise how much I knew until an acquaintance needed help with her newly designed WordPress site. I not only fixed the problems she was having, but set up her WooCommerce shop from scratch. I’ve since created four other sites, one of them a WooCommerce shop.

    I always assumed that because I wasn’t a graphic designer, I couldn’t design websites – but I’ve learned that in the end, making the thing look pretty is the least important aspect of a site. I understand how to make a site function. As a writer, I can also create content.

    I’m semi-retired so I am not knocking myself out for new business but I am enjoying this new adventure and it’s a thrill creating a new site for a new small business and helping them start out on their dream.

    Hi DorothyM

    Thanks for joining Flying Solo. The ‘accidental business’ is something we talk about in our little book and you’ll see a number of others in a similar situation here.

    Your accidental business sounds like a nice one!
