I have an exciting little announcement today, and I decided to do it with a vlog!
And because no vlog is complete without commentary- I think that when I was summarizing the webinar discussion I was putting in some of the stuff from the chat box because I couldn’t find the whole part that I was talking about when I rewatched it. Or I just made it up. You should really just watch it because they get the point across a million times more eloquently than I do. Hopefully I make a tiny lick of sense. And please tolerate the fact that I seem to skip thoughts mid sentence.
Here’s the scoop in case you don’t want to watch the vlog. On Wednesday I was really inspired by the Business with Heart webinar, and through some of the discussion I came to the realization that I need to spend some quality time focusing on my own creative endeavors without being influenced by all the stimuli that I surround myself with daily in blog world. I’ve come to the same realization a couple of times in the last few months, but this time I really felt inspired to do something about it.
Next week I am taking all of the time that I usually spend reading blogs, curating content, and finding inspiration elsewhere and instead focusing on my creative interests and finding inspiration within myself. I’m calling this a creative cleanse. What do I want to explore in my sketchbook? What do I like? What appeals to me visually? What is my style?
I am going to post something that I create on the blog every day. I’m going to be doing a bunch of different things between my sketchbook and designing digital things that I maybe don’t normally take the time to work on, but if you’d like to join in you can do whatever you want! Whether it’s painting, knitting, cooking… it seriously doesn’t matter, as long as you are pursing your interests because you have a passion for them and they are part of who you are. And don’t put a ton of pressure on yourself about the finished product- this is about the process.
I would love for you guys to participate, and you can participate as much or as little as you want. You can blog about it, tweet it, instagram it, whatever! At the end of the week instead of including links in the Starred this Week post, I’ll probably do some sort of round up if people participate. So if you do participate, definitely let me know because I want to see!
Do you have this same problem? Join in and tell me what passions and creative interest you might pursue!
