I wish my brain had an off switch. You know those nights when you go to bed feeling really, really tired, and then as soon as the light's out, your brain wakes up? Mine was on for a party last night, drove me crazy, and just like a rebellious teenager, the more I told it to shoosh, the more it just kept nattering away. I gave in to it for a while, hoping it would wear itself out and when that didn't seem to be working, I dug around in my bedside drawer and located my ipod. Meditate, relax, breathe... natter, chatter, talk - shoosh! So, I decided maybe I needed to listen and take some notes. Digging around in the drawer again to find pen and paper, here's what I wrote (very badly in the dark so as not to wake snoring hubby):
"Blog challenge, write a blog every day, a day in the life of a witch.. no that's not right, how about a day in the life of a designer? No... so what's this blog about? Well, it's about every day stuff, like a diary. I want to use it to link to other people that I connect with on a daily basis, I want to share my stories about creating people's branding and logos and website and stuff, their design journey and mine. I want to be accountable I suppose, I want every day to have some sort of accomplishment or connection. Who's gonna read it? I don't know, people who love me? Anyone that wants to. Does it matter? How do you put an RSS feed thing on your website? Can I do that or will I need to ask Wayne (my web guru)? Must research that. So what else will you write about? My every day thoughts and feelings, I want to keep it real, I want to connect with people. I can write about my family, the junk mail even, what's for tea, just every day stuff like that and how that all hovers around the edges of my business. Oh, and I no longer want to call work "work", from now on it's called "creating", that's much more positive and, well, creative..." and on and on it went... I finally got some sleep once that was all on paper.
So, as of today I'm starting a blog. Like a diary, for 28 days. Want to join me on the ride? But first I'm off to have a little nanna nap, see you tomorrow x
