1. People who have a lot of ideas need a blog, not a book.
...and I scoffed! I even tried to justify to myself all the reasons why I shouldn't write a blog - It's self indulgant and I'm lazy, uninteresting and easily distracted - of course having started a blog I've realised that it's the distractions that are worth writing about. I also realise that even though it is a tiny bit self indulgant (I didn't need to write about Pushing Daisies, but I love it) it is actually more of a generous medium than I realised and it's the book writing that is selfish.
There's a whole blogging world out there that I'm interested in and I'm hugely excited about. I love looking at my blogger dashboard, reading the updated blogs and feeling like I've shared something with someone somewhere in doing that. I'm hugely excited that I found this today and now I'm following 24 blogs and I only got to D.
Anyway, what I'm really trying to say is that Penelope Trunk was right - I did need a blog. Not just to write, but to read: I feel more excited about design, life, colours, words and places then I ever have before just through reading other peoples blogs - just imagine the things I can find out for myself and start to write about!
