You know, I started this blog on the site as a way to document some interesting aspects of the design process, and to put some ideas together for imaginary clients. The overall aim was to keep myself (and any readers) inspired and just create things no matter what - with or without a specific client in mind. But, for some reason, I find myself like ZERO INSPIRED to write anything in here.
It's no surprise that I've been slacking on the blog posts and it's mainly because I'm clueless on what to write, how to write it, and how to display everything. With so many amazing design blogs out there already, it's a constant struggle in my brain of "how do I stand out?" and "why should people even care about what I'm saying?" Not to mention, WHY do I feel the need to stand out? I already know I'm pretty one-of-a-kind in a few ways, but it feels like all designers are starting to look the same. Our sites and blogs all look the same but with different images swapped in.
It's time to reevaluate and re-imagine, I'm just not sure at all how long that will take and how I'll get there! But here's to hoping the end result will eventually be a place for inspiration to be shared, totally non-important topics to be discussed, and pretty things to be adored.
I had all these ideas brewing! Knowing which ones are right for me and my business right now, and how to move forward, has been the challenge. We just signed a lease on a new (tiny) place that needs a lotttt of help -- maybe that will kickstart some thoughts!
So, I'm going to take some time to think about this blog. I want this to be a thoughtful space - not just one that was thrown together in a hurry! Although, it definitely wasn't thrown together in a hurry. #justsayin
As always, feel free to let me know what you'd like to see most here! I'd love to hear it!
