Hello homey homies, new and old!
If you’ve been here for a while, you may have noticed that things look a little different around here now. You’re noticing less and less about interior design, and more of a wider range around other topics like creativity in general and also productivity. This has been an intentional switch, but I wanted to hop on here to explain a little bit in case any of you OG homey homies are confused.
In short, I felt restrained by only talking about one small subset of my passions here. As much as I love interior design, I felt that I had a lot more to say. My interest in interior design, I think, is more of an offshoot of my interest in the general idea of creativity. While it’s one of my favorite outlets, it’s not the only. So it felt like a disservice to ignore any of those other big ideas trying to burst out of my brain.
And as a self-proclaimed type a AND type b person, it also felt dishonest to ignore how much of my productivity mindset goes into any creative practice I engage in. I see the process as just as important of a piece of creativity as the creative ideas themselves.
So… all that being said, we’re broadening our scope here, and I personally think you’re going to love it.
We’re still talking about design. We’re gonna cover all of the trends, DIYs and design inspiration you came here for.
But on top of that, we’re also going to explore other creative avenues. I’m talking about building a creative career, finding your unique voice, strategies to challenge yourself, some of the massive hurdles to being a “creative.”
And then we’re breaking it down further by digging into some of the processes you need to flourish as a creative person. This can be anything from thinking through the importance of a reliable process, to what technology helps you scale your creativity, to managing your time when you’re a full-time creative freelancer.
Homey homies, in other words, is your full toolkit to being the best possible creative that you can be.
I, for one, am extremely energized by the direction this blog is heading in, and I hope you are, too! But this is a living and breathing thing that’s just as much made to help you as it is an outlet for me. So if you have any questions, concerns, or ideas for the future of this blog, please don’t hesitate to send me an email at email@example.com, or hit me up on any of my socials!
