A Note on my Blogs

I've come to realize that my website is not polished. I'm sure it is littered with typos and improper grammar. It's not that I'm unaware, it's more that I am eager to share. The fact is, we can edit, improve, and re-invent work over and over and over again to the point that we never ship it because its not perfect.

I easily get caught up in grand ideas, in spectacular work, in these far fetched pieces that totally consume me. At that point it becomes debilitating and no work is produced.

I am not a perfectionist. I am not a "detail-oriented" person.

A lot of people (especially those whom I wish would hire me) see this as a negative. I am here to challenge that. To embrace this non-quality about myself. Yes, I love reading, yes I love writing, no, grammar and spelling and punctuation do not come naturally to me. Rather than getting caught up in the minute details, I am a big picture thinker, a dreamer and a do-er.

I would rather spend five hours researching, writing, and coding a blog, to post it that same day, than spend five days having anxiety that the piece is not "perfect".

At the end of the day, I have a website, I have a blog. I'm aware that this is now the industry standard for anyone trying to showcase their skills, but it's new for me. And because of that, I am going to celebrate the fact that I do indeed have a blog!

Right now it's about the process. It's about learning. It's about produce work. This is a stepping stone to perfect work.

P.S. I chose a picture of my pup, Cash Money, because he is the closest thing to perfect that I can imagine.
