Why Do I Blog?

Psssst, the secret is because I'm selfish.

Seth Godin wrote in his book Linchpin (pg. 94):
"Some artists work to change themselves. The process of making the art and the results produced are solely aimed at the creator. Whistling as you walk through the woods is a form of art, but you’re not doing it hoping a squirrel will applaud."

My reason for blogging has fluctuated over the years - it’s like we are in an on-again, off-again relationship.

My blog started off as a virtual journal (ya'll remember livejournal?!), then it became a place to share my photography, blossoming into a space to help creatives, and now it is a home for my reflections on personal and professional development that in turn helps anyone whom is reading or interacting with it.

Over the past few years, my mindset has shifted (my friend noticed this when she scrolled through my Instagram posts).

  • September 2015, I became more self-reflective

  • March 2017, I started posting about mortality

  • October 2017, I began sharing new knowledge I've acquired and haven't stopped since

Therefore, this blog is a selfish project that is meant to offer knowledge and resources to folks like myself. People who felt lost but want to continue building their wealth of information and knowledge banks.
