Incept Your Favorite Creative Blogs & Websites
Have you seen the film “Inception?” I won’t go into any details in case you haven’t had the chance to see it yet (psss… go see it). However I will give the general concept of the film, which is having the ability to incept into someone’s dreams, and sometimes these characters, will go even deeper by being in a dream within dreams. Sure that might sound a little confusing, but we all practice that concept of starting at one point and ending completely at another, especially within modern technology. YouTube would be a great example, have you ever noticed when you went to watch one video, somehow you clicked on another, till all of sudden you realize it’s been over two hours and you’re still watching all these different videos that don’t even connect to the original video that you were watching? I’ll be the first here to raise my hand, because I know that I have, however I do enjoy getting lost in the digital world because sometimes I discover the most awesome creative sites.
I find that sometimes, if I am feeling a little unmotivated I like to find inspiration through other creative means. I know when I have found it because I get a beautiful, excited, butterfly like feeling in my stomach and I motivated to think of new or existing creative projects to work.
In trying to gain ideas for what to do for your creative hour, start off perhaps with some of the websites that you like to go to. This can even be sites you go to for the purposes of entertainment like YouTube or Tumblr. A few the websites/blogs that I recently have taken a liking to are DesignLoveFest (‘is a lifestyle blog with an eye for design in style, DIY, food, travel, entertaining and more’), and A Beautiful Mess (‘is a blog all about creating a beautiful life. They share daily inspirations, DIY projects and recipes’). I also find new creative sites or cool art ideas through websites like Pinterest. The best part about Pinterest is that I can create these boards to save these projects, so I can come back to them. Here is my impromptu idea for the week: check out some of the sites that I listed above, or another way to discover new sites is to see who your favorite websites/bloggers are following. Before you know it you will soon get lost and discover a new world of creative websites.
