Since I began blogging back in 2008, the rise of small business within the online creative field has been increasing at a heartwarming rate… long may it continue!
Many of us find ourselves working largely alone and creating and nurturing a business by means of being “self-taught”. We might have undergone a career change and landed feet first in brand new territories… with a pressing need to acquire a whole other set of skills.
I don’t know about you but I’ve spent countless hours, days and weeks trying to find out how to do some of the more technical stuff - not a fan by the way! Not to mention time spent searching for relevant reads on things like productivity, finding balance or how I might be able to work a bit smarter. Exactly how do you get your photos to look so fresh and clean on your blog/site/Instagram feed? Where can I find people in a similar life stage who inspire me to keep pushing along on this path? Does anyone else feel like I do when it comes to taking a leap… i.e. scared witless but driven by the excitement and passion for what they do?
Shared knowledge is everything when it comes to working in an online, collaborative community and I’ve always been happy to pass on what I’ve learnt over the years. For simply START living, I wanted to pull it all together into one place because creation and inspiration are where it’s at for me. And if you’re here, then maybe you feel the same.
I hope you find these creative resources useful and that they inspire you to continue, and most importantly, allow you to focus more time on doing the work you love...
I’ll be updating the Creative Resources section regularly so if you know of anything (or anyone) that might be useful to the online creative community, please drop me an email at: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Please note: This isn’t an advertising space. I only list resources and services that I’ve used or those that have been utilised by a friend or trusted fellow creative.
