In the fall of 2013 I took Monica Lee’s Smart Creative Style course and well I’m putting into play a big lesson I learned there, and if I’m truthful it’s very similar to something Greg Payce said waaaay back when I was an undergraduate. EDIT. Be ruthless. Break pots. Burn drawings/paintings. I remember looking at him horrified, these were MY creations, these were MY BABIES! (I was 20 something, dramatics were kinda appropriate) Here we are some long time after that spring day and I TOTALLY get why you do this sort of cull. You need to let go of that which does not serve you.
There was all kinds of stuff on the last iteration of my site that did not serve me. But I didn’t know that at the time. I’ve spent a few years farting around trying to figure it out. I took Smart Creative Style because I think Monica is the bee’s knee’s, like I want to be her bestie if we ever cross paths, and her take on Style/Branding/Marketing just spoke to me. A case of me listening to the whispers for sure.
Anyway my point is this site is being re-branded, there is a serious culling going on around here. The plan was originally to do it all behind the scenes and wrap a pretty bow on it, but I’m not patient enough for that…. Plus Danielle LaPorte basically figures nobody’s paying attention anyway. (That pearl of wisdom is in one of these: Urban Campfire talk, or Wanderlust talk)
In the meantime for those of you who are paying attention. Apologies for the broken links and total lack of visuals. I’ll figure it out!
