Say that again?
Let us look at the title in detail, are you the kind of person that is inspired by what you do or what is around you or are you inspired by others creativity?
Are you the sort to draw on yourself for creative inspiration or do you need to be drawn out by other people’s creativity?
Do you need to inspire yourself by reading other people’s blogs for example or are you burning with ideas on what to write?
How do you let your creativity decide what you do on your blog?
Are you someone who likes to be inspired to write or are you the type to plan out the blog for the next month in advance or are you the kind of person who likes to talk about things that are on topic?
Sorry for all the questions but they are all relevant. Hopefully you get the idea and with all those questions you are now thinking about the type of person you are and know how you think.
I myself have a bit of both sides. While I can come up with many ideas and I love to be creative both in design and in technical detail I am very much inspired by what is around me and what I read. Where I work can alter my ideas and creativity so some times working in a different location can give me a breath of fresh air towards my work and I can become much more open to ideas.
Most people generally think about creativity as doing well in art and music. However, Creativity in my opinion is a surge, a burst of imagination and new ideas or your own unique interpretation. This comes from within your inner Being and further to this is the creativity in turning this surge into a reality.
To increase the ideas you come up with you need be in a state of mind that allows your thoughts and ideas to flow. I know this might sound a little crazy and a bit hippy like but you need to have a way of inspiring yourself.
I have a list of bookmarked sites I keep updated on that can give me ideas on what to write or how to design something or how I may go about my next website build. Along with the websites that I keep up to date with i also inspire myself by reading lots of books, subscribing to a few magazines that keep up to date on the latest happenings on the web and I try and take my camera out to take a few shots when I can to get the creative juices flowing especially on a sunny day.
These sound pretty standard methods do you do anything out of the ordinary to keep up to date or to inspire yourself?
