Here we go again!
I’ve had a blog in some form or fashion for over 20(?!) years. Web design was what led me down the path from which I ultimately discovered user experience design and my current career. But with the gradual collapse of Twitter, I came across Bring Back Blogging and thought it’d be lovely to give it a go again.
I’d like for this to be the central point, clearinghouse, etc. for everything I post, and then I’ll share posts I’ve categorized as relevant on my design portfolio, which is in need of some rebuilding to accommodate that. I’ve done some silly Photoshops (Pixelmators?) and would love to share them publicly.
And I’m redesigning the blog page to be like a new homepage for myself, with status updates on what I’m up to as far as reading, music (last.fm, y’all! Because #SpotifyIsSurveillance), Mastodon updates, and photos (yeah, speaking of Flickr, I’m easily 5 years behind there…). Let’s bring back the early web together, y’all!
As for what I actually talk about – who knows? I’ll try to keep them at least kind of substantive, but they’ll likely be full of fluff. I’m just tired of talking in-depth about design outside of work, especially when being fully remote at my last job blurred the lines between my professional and personal lives. But I have plenty of other interests I love to gush about, so maybe I’ll remind myself to write about them in a longform fashion here, instead of threading together Mastodon posts (no, I’ll never call them “toots,” haha).
Be well and stay awesome, my lovely friends. 🙂
