This year has been amazing but also hectic and overwhelming. It's been almost a year now since I quit my corporate job to strike out on my own. In that time not only was I brought on to be the new Freelance Art Director of Rue Magazine, but I've also been doing some amazing work for other great clients such as, Cuyana and Apartment34 to name a just a couple. Through these jobs I've met amazing new friends and produced some really fulfilling work. But, I have to admit, starting my own freelance business has been tough, and the blog is often my lowest priority. It's crazy to me that I used to produce 8-10 posts a week, and now I'm down to maybe 2-3. This blog used to be a creative outlet for me, I could share everything that was inspiring me and build a community around design, photography and everything else that I love. However, I don't have the same time I used to have to dedicate to the blog, and honestly, Pinterest, Instagram and twitter have fulfilled many of the rolls I used to need the blog for.
This all got me thinking while I was on vacation, what do I want this blog to be? I haven't found the answer quite yet, but I have some ideas that I'm really excited about. In the meantime expect fewer blog posts, but, hopefully better ones. Thank you for your interest in this blog, it has opened up so many new opportunities for me, I hope you will continue to check in with Design Conundrum to see what new direction it takes.
