I’ve often thought about running an Ask Me Anything post, because 1) these are so fun to read or listen to on other people’s blogs and Snapchats, and because 2) after almost 8 years of blogging, sometimes I think you guys actually have the best ideas. No, really! I’ll start emailing with a reader, or meet up with a fellow blogger/biz owner for a coffee, and I get asked questions that I would never think to write about. Or, we end up having some thought provoking conversation about life and family and business, and I’ll come away with all these new ideas. I’ve also been told that I have interesting insights about running a business and working for yourself (with a very non-traditional career path to boot), but I sometimes think that when you’re in the trenches and caught up with your own shiz, it’s hard to see what lessons would be most valuable to share. Every now and again I come up with pearls of wisdom (this was a recent one), but like all the best creative brainstorming sessions, I find I have even more ideas when I’m conversing with someone. Which is where you guys come in.
I wanna know: well, what do you wanna know? Ask me anything. A question about my work, the design process, how I do something in Photoshop, something personal about where I’ve lived, my life, my past lives, whatever. Not only do I hope to continue the conversation in a new way, but I also secretly think the questions that come up might make for some interesting longer posts. Let’s talk!
You can email me, tweet me, comment on Facebook, or simply comment below. I’ll gather up all the questions, then put together a post with my answers next week!
Deep breath. Ok, excited to see what you guys got for me!
