As I think about my next year of creative habits (you didn't think I was quitting did ya?!) I know that in order to do more in some areas, I'll need to cut back in others. One thing that takes up a lot of my time right now is blogging. I have sort of a love/hate relationship with blogging. While I don't always enjoy it, I know that writing blog posts keeps me doing and learning stuff. Without the doing and the learning, I'd have nothing to blog about! My problem is and you may not know this but I have two blogs! This one has gotten all the attention this year but I also have one at crystalmoody.com. Lately it gets minimal time and effort but it's on my mind a lot. My whole site which has my portfolio and other side projects has really been neglected and it bothers me.
If you've blogged for awhile or have your own website you might be familiar with this feeling that I have. Both yearofcreativehabits.com and crystalmoody.com feel like homes to me. I love both spots. I don't plan to give up either but I think combining blogs will help me to have one really active blog that I'm proud of without worry that the other is neglected.
Most of my posts over there (at least lately) have been about my photography, recent design projects, and what I'm reading. Those are all things that I think could easily fit in over here. So I've made the decision to merge the blogs together and possibly there will be some merging of the two sites as well.
You probably won't see any major design changes until the end of the year but I'm going to start merging the two blogs this week. What does that mean? Well, you're going to get posts about a photography project that I've been working on all year and updates about the books I'm reading that aren't related to art or creativity. You might see a design project or two. It's all stuff I work on and am interested in so I hope it's just a bigger picture of who I am and the stuff I make. Oh and please be patient with me as I know it'll take me time to get this all figured out! XX :)
