Thinking About This Blog

It's been a really long time since I posted anything, but in my defense, I have been quite busy. I quit my job, worked about three other jobs, road tripped across the country, and then of course, started a new job. Now that things have calmed down a little I want to try to post on here a little more regularly... you know, like at least once every two months. Also, I've been considering what I want this blog to be about and have come to the conclusion that I want it to be a place of visual storytelling. That's still pretty broad, but it's about as specific as I can get right now with what I'd like to do with my life (you know, career-wise). So, I want this blog to be a place that reflects that and is a place for me to showcase work, inspiration, and some of my trials along the way. Hopefully it will drive me to get better at what I'm really interested in doing. I love strong visuals, and have long questioned whether I would like to work in arena that is purely visual but have determined that when those visuals go beyond just being beautiful/exciting/interesting and tell a story in some way, it completely takes it to another level for me. I want to create things that move people in some way, whether it's to laughter, action, thinking, or a feeling. I want to be able to tell fascinating stories, whether it's through a video, a photograph, or maybe even a diorama (ok, I won't ACTUALLY make a diorama, but lists of items need at least three). So from now on, I'm going to try to keep my posting on here to stuff that fits within that realm. Sometimes it may be mostly visual, and perhaps other times it will be pure storytelling (although that's probably less likely because I don't do much story writing. Hmmm... I should though. OK, maybe I'll try to do more of that. Wow this blog is working wonders already!), but ultimately I want it all leading me in the direction of being a better visual storyteller.

Here's to a new start!
