Why Blog?

Why Blog?

Okay, I will admit it, I used to make fun of all bloggers. I could not understand why people thought what they had to say was so interesting that they needed to share it with the world. I thought bloggers were all just wasting their time and energy on a dumb site that did nothing for them, but I was proven wrong. 

It was only about 2 weeks ago that I decided I needed to start blogging, and I needed to start it now. I have been in a very corporate job for years that does not promote a lot of creativity, so I have felt a void in my soul and knew I had to do something to expresses myself through art. I needed to get back into my writing, photography, designing, and get my creative juices flowing again.

I grew up in a very artistic household where art was always just a part of our lives. My father has spent his career as a design engineer for the major Detroit auto companies and my mother is an elementary school special education teacher who loved to do DIY crafts and art projects with my brother and I that promoted learning. Because of this, my brother and I have both been active in the arts and studied art in college in hopes to have creative careers. My brother, Jeff  has become very successful following his dream in art and now works as a professional fashion photographer living in South Beach. I truly believe it is because I am not fulfilling my passion and what I am naturally gifted at that I have felt this void for years that I am floundering in my current sales job. This is why I created Artisan Happiness.

What I am hoping to get out of this blog is simply a creative release; somewhere I can practice writing, photography, graphic arts and more.So far this blog has taught me HTML and coding, has encouraged me to start writing again taking photos, and it will force me to learn video production, so I can expand this blog into multimedia channels. In addition, it is a goal of mine to touch or inspire someone by my words or my journeys to do something different, and focus on themselves and their passions to find their ultimate happiness.
