Happiness Lies in the Joy of Achievement and the Thrill of Creative Effort
I’m often asked by people, “Why do you blog?” I think that the statement from today’s FortunateBluFrog fortune sums it up so well. I started blogging because I didn’t feel that my “real” job allowed me enough creativity. I had worked as a web designer prior to going corporate. I loved being able to create images and really enjoy the work. I applied to be a graphic artist at my current place of employment but the fates and the people I interviewed with said that I’d be much more suited to the implementation division. Implementation meant that I would work with customers to get them up and running on the software after they had purchased it. This actually was a very enjoyable job, I got to travel everywhere and meet many interesting people and work with them one on one. But I didn’t feel creative at all.
Put Your Heart into What You Create
On my 1st day at my job another person told me that I should always have a camera with me because I was going to see so much. He was so right about this and I took a camera with me on every single trip. I already had a camera with me and when I became inspired by Christopher Williams in 2005 I started my Photo-A-Day Project. I am nearing 4 years of it I am so happy that I took the time to blog and express creativity each and every day.
