I'm working on a short talk I'll be giving at the SAQA conference at the end of March. It's called "What I've Learned From Eleven Years of Blogging."
And when I say I'm "working" on the talk, I mean I'm really really struggling to figure out what to say and how to say it.
I'm also getting distracted by pictures like this from 2005.
And this from just last week.
And by distracted, I mean... I get a little weepy. Time passes. My kids are growing up.
My creative life has changed a lot too. I teach and write and "work" as an artist. But, my blog is not about building a brand. It's not "monetized."
Mostly, I just want to blog about the same stuff I began blogging about eleven years ago: art, family, travel, food, things I like, things I don't like, the world around me.
But, I have learned things along the way and I'm happy to share them. It's just tough to find the right words and images to explain this experience.
