So, here I am, once again, missing the hell out of blogging. A lot has changed in the last year, and I think it´s time for me to push myself into being more creative again. Since I launched my company web and concept Creatingwild, I´ve been knees deep in work. And by all means, that´s amazing, I love my work, and I feel so privileged! But, it unfortunately means more time designing, coding, creating websites than to actually spread inspiration on them as I used to. And, I´ve realized that I spent much more of my time with technical issues, marketing, accounting and other behind-the-scenes-stuff than I do front end creating.
“I believe I speak for all creatives, when I say that my mind is a colorful wonderland that needs constant inspiration to properly function.”
As so many creative souls out there, I feel drained of energy, empty and hollow when I´m not able to express myself through drawing, writing and photographing. This was what the blog of Ingvild Kåråsen originally was about, in the six years I posted almost every day. This is how I inspired, provoked, expressed the me I was back then. This is how I gained my first followers and eventually clients, and what I looked forward to doing during long days of boring school. This is what I once based my life and livelihood on. And this is what I want to have again. And what I will work hard to accomplish.
I believe I speak for all creatives, when I say that my mind is a colorful wonderland that needs constant inspiration to properly function. What this journal will contain, I do not know yet; but I imagine a potpurri of my work as well as others, projects, personal style and traveler logs. Ingwild – both the blog and the person has gone through countless stages and phases, but this is it: I welcome you; old and new followers, friends, family, lovers, enemies, clients, strangers to follow life in the head of a creative.
