SO.... I'VE been a little absent from the blog this week. But I'm back today with some pretty exciting news- as I'm sure you noticed when you landed on this page! Well, here it is right in front of our eyes- I've finally, finally updated the design of my blog (Ahh!!!)
I'll be the first to admit that I'm a perfectionist to a fault, and like most things, it took me a long time to decide on a new layout... it's been MONTHS since I first saw this design, and fell in love! Really, I owe the thanks to my friends who pushed me to keep blogging and make the upgrade. I love it, and I hope you do too! Bear with me as I tweak it over the next couple weeks :)
I'm feeling a little reflective this morning, but you know, it wasn't so long ago that I started this blog - I think this September marks its third birthday (it's still a baby in blog years!) And... I think this is the year I really started to find a clearer voice for "the etherealist", this visual diary, as I like to call it. I've discovered so many new independent publications, films, music, and just sources of inspiration virtually everyday, everywhere. And without a doubt, I've gotten to know a handful of talented friends this year- even a few who I've felt I've known my whole life, who I genuinely can't image life without (how crazy and wonderful is that?)
What started out as a really personal means of experimenting with photography (those over-saturated photos still kill me), artwork, and writing has morphed over the years into long-term projects and collaborations. And while I've made the jump into a slightly more "professional", cleaner-looking site, I hope to never lose the personal side it started with, because this voice is really all I have to offer in a world full of blogs. As long as I have a passion and drive, I'm going to give it all I can, and I'm so excited for you to read along!
Have a lovely Friday!
