I've been thinking about starting a blog for a while, but there was always something more urgent that came up. Between my family, college, and work designing websites I had little free time. I also felt that I spend too much time in front of the computer as it is, and I should use whatever free time I have for other activities.
However, now that I'm graduating from college, I feel that I'll miss the daily interaction with a large group of artists and designers that college provided. I'm subscribed to design magazines and visit design sites to keep up, but this feels so one sided. I'm also considering joining AIGA but I won't have much time to drive to the meetings.
Well, I feel so good to come across the Graphic Designer Forum, and even better that I was included as one of the bloggers. This place is like a virtual coffee house where you can meet other designers and chat. I'm really looking forward to sipping coffee with all of you and discuss everything from contracts to typefaces to that special full-body roast that gets your imagination going in the morning.
