As is probably rather evident from my sporadic posting, it’s not really in me to write as much as it is to draw. I became a freelance designer instead of a freelance writer for that very reason. It seems, however, that graphic and web designers are supposed to be blogging as well as designing.
But where do you find the time? Or the inspiration?
I seldom have trouble finding inspiration to design something and I usually manage to fit in design time around my full-time job and still make deadlines without a problem. When it comes to finding something to blog about though, I seem to hit a wall every time. I’ll sit here and stare at WordPress for a few minutes (or hours) and finally just give up and move on to something else.
So, if any other designers who happen to blog come across this… help a girl out.
Do you think blogging is a must for designers? Or is it a waste of time?
Are there certain places you go for inspiration?
I started this blog thinking it would be easy to post tutorials every now and then and write small articles about design, typography, color, etc. I’ve realized it’s not quite that simple. I understand now why there are bloggers who do this full-time. Blogging, that is. It takes time to think up new and interesting content, do some research on it and sit down and write an informative and original article. I have to say, I have a new found respect for those that do it.
