Why I'm Starting this Blog

Sep 20, 2021

The best way to get started on the path to sharing your work is to think about what you want to learn, and make a commitment to learning it in front of others.

Why I’m Starting a Blog

I've never been the type to share a lot of myself online. Aside from the occasional art post on Instagram, I'm pretty much a ghost on all social media.

I've since read Austin Kleon's "Show Your Work!" and Ali Abdaal's related videos on documenting you progress and have changed my ind on the matter. This is what I should be doing on my journey to full-time freelance web design. My struggles and experience could help someone else out there who's also thinking about going down this path. Writing things down would also help me work through my own struggles and give voice to my thoughts.

And so, I've decided to start blogging. I'm becoming a blogger. Specifically a freelance web design, UI/UX, Webflow, web development blogger. Sounds very corny writing that out loud, but that's what I want to talk about.

What to Expect

I'm no expert by any means. I'm just a guy trying to learn out loud and share my journey with others. I'm also not a professional writer so while I do have some skills, don't expect Shakespeare or anything.

This blog will be a casual look into my learning and growth as a freelance web designer. I hope you will join me!
