When Monica and I started Makers Social the idea was to share stories, knowledge and things that we found interesting. The blog was always a means to an end-mainly building a community before opening the physical space of Makers Social. As someone who is so driven by visuals I have found it hard to grow the blog without having the look and style I wanted. In a sense I was embarrassed by it. I didn’t want to share something that didn’t fit my aesthetic. Do you do this too? I tend to get so pre-occupied by the end product (or the whole) that I cannot focus on the initial steps it takes to get there, not to mention my lack of graphic design skills. So, slowly the blog is taking shape, changing, and growing. I’m still committed to growing a community and highlighting projects from other creatives in this little corner of the internet, but also going to focus more on personal stories and experiences.
One of my goals for the New Year is to make the content on here as original as possible, especially the photography. This is already proving difficult! but I feel why regurgitate information that can be found all over when I have the ability to produce my own, unique, content. Whether or not I tap into that ability remains to be seen :)
