Why I Blog

I thought I would make a more personal post today, about what has been going on in my life, and why I blog.

So first, why was I away for a month? Well, in the past month I have taken the comprehensive screening exam (at school, required to go further in my education), went on a volunteer work team to Mexico, and moved into a new apartment. All this, plus other class projects have been keeping me ultra busy.

But, on to the second question. I started blogging for several reasons. First, I wanted to establish a public history of my design theory and style. Secondly, I wanted to catalog designs I love, and thought it would best be done in a blog. A third reason, which I didn't initially realize, is that by looking at and reviewing the positive aspects of others' designs, I have become a better designer myself.

That is why I blog.
