[tumblr] where do you float?
September 20, 2010 § 1 Comment
Some nights I find myself clicking links endlessly, hopping from blogs to magzines to forums to google results (P.S. Google, I Love You), until my eyes are half-crossed and I can’t fathom why it reads 3am on the clock.
Each time I never fail to come across visuals that (for a lack of a better word) inspire me.
“Inspire” doesn’t quite capture how they make me want to splash the wall with colour and scribble non-stop on thick paper and come up with new words to describe the ideas that are running free like it’s liberation day. They make me want to create, create, create; all these wonderful scraps of feelings!
Then, there are other times, when I’m stuck on a project, and I’m a beached whale, flailing for the water.
My creative inklings then? BIG FAT ZERO.
I needed a source to top me up every time I ran low. Without the hassle of going through a million link-clicks again. Or sieving through another million bookmarks (I am a compulsive bookmarker).
Thus, I revived my Tumblr account and finally figured how to put it to good use.
So, hello archiving! Hello relief! Hello my 991-emergency line for inspiration!
