Through conversations with creative friends and associates, I've noticed a common "issue" we all seem to share: disorganization. As artistic people, we have constant ideas firing off in our brains, and when we're in the mood to create, we will passionately throw ourselves into a project.

It's ideal for 'thought leaders' who have something interesting to say about their field and of course it's superb for writers. And I believe every website should include a blog even if it's only an occasionally updated "News and articles" page. That's why I recommend most clients to build their whole website in WordPress from the beginning. But blogging takes time - quite a lot of it to do well. Tumblelogs A tumblelog is a simpler form of blog consisting of a long flowing list of images, videos and short text extracts (such as quotes). I maintain an irregularly updated tumblelog DesignPorn containing images of my favourite contemporary architecture and interior design. Check out Tumblr or Soup.io.
