Taking a new direction on blogging

I have been contemplating taking my blog to a new direction these past few weeks because of how bad I am at updating it regularly. Ever since I started Inspiredly Insane, I wanted this to be a platform to expose my work in a more casual manner. Putting new work up to my portfolio site is a hassle and nobody checks out a portfolio site religiously anyway. If you know me personally or have been following my work, you'd know that I am CONSTANTLY making stuff and taking pictures and I find it extremely rewarding knowing that there are people out there who see them. That's the major reason why Inspiredly Insane is an important part of my creative life.

If you've been a faithful reader, you'd know that almost all of the stuff I posted here are artwork made by me and photos taken by me. But, being a grad student doesn't really give me all the time in the world to make typography posters or wander around the city to take photos anymore. My life isn't sufficiently interesting to be worth a post every single day/week considering that I spend most of my days sitting in front of a laptop. So I figure maybe it's time for a change. Instead of being so self-absorbed with my work, I probably should start posting stuff that actually inspire me. One of the design blogs that I've been faithful to is Swiss-Miss, by Tina Roth Eisenberg. I just LOVE the simplicity of it and how it makes reading it a painless experience. So, starting next week, I'm going to start doing what Tina does best - finding cool stuff on the Internet and sharing them with you guys. Cool?

I'm gonna start by leaving these two songs that I've played 9999 times in the office this week:
Seen It All - Jake Bugg | Back to the Earth - Jason Mraz (oh the things I'd do to witness this live performance! A+++)

Thanks for reading. Have a great weekend!

  1. sounds like a cool idea. your work is awesome, so I'm pretty sure your taste must be, too. can't wait to see what shape the blog takes in the future (and fingers-crossed you still share some artwork every now and again!) :)
