Bloggers whose core business is not blogging face a unique set of challenges. It’s hard enough to keep a blog filled with new and interesting content when blogging/publicity/PR/social media is your business; it’s even harder to do when writing a blog post is not a core competency, but just one more thing on an already packed to-do list. I’m sure you know what I’m talking about.
Anyway, after a recent Twitter conversation about this with award-winning interior designer Tobi Fairley , I was inspired by her short, sweet, and colorful post about a recent purchase. I thought, “Hey! I can do brief and colorful.” So here’s a picture, along with a half-baked, half-thought-out, not-quite-ready-for-prime-time blog post.
This is one of my contemporary designs, based on a Japanese stencil pattern. We haven’t put it into production because it’s still an only child and I’d like it to have some siblings. (Our other designs are all Arts & Crafts, so a contemporary one like this doesn’ thave anyone to play with.)
Does it have potential? Goodweave (f/k/a Rugmark) thinks so, they’ve asked permission to use it as a background in a couple of their publications. What do you think?
