What is Alphabet X?
At first glance, you might think that this blog is focused on one particular thing – but actually, it’s not. Today, we are going to talk about creativity, but the blog will cover a wide variety of things – from photography and design to food and travel. All sorts of things are possible with creativity.
What inspired you to start your blog?
The blog is a result of my love for creativity, and a desire to help other creatives on their path to success. It all started as an experiment – to see what would happen if I started a blog. I have been a professional photographer for almost 20 years, and during that time, I have had the privilege of working with some amazing people. I think it is important for creative people to share their work with the world – and if someone is interested in what you have to offer, then it is only natural to want to learn more – and the blog is a way of doing that.
The best and most exciting thing you’ve ever done – or will do
On the surface, it might seem like the “next thing you’ll do if you win the lottery – but not necessarily for a living” line that I have written many times before. But the truth is, what I will do if I win the lottery is anybody’s guess. At the moment, that question is way too early in my career to make such bold predictions, but I will say that the one thing that I will definitely do is create more art. That is a promise!
The way that you spend your free time – and how you want it spent
As a creative, you will spend the majority of your time either creating art or thinking about art. The only way for creativity to flourish is for us to spend time doing something we love, and giving our best. So, as a creative, what do you want to spend your free time doing?
How to be a successful creative – and not just in your work life
As a creative, the most important thing you can do is to ensure that you are getting enough uninterrupted flow of creative thinking. This means that you need to be creating – whether that be creating art, or thinking about art – at least some of the time. Practicing what you preach, folks!
The one piece of advice you’d give to other creatives – or to anybody trying to start a blog
The most important thing that anybody can do when it comes to starting a blog is find their voice – both within their blog and in their voice-mail. When we are able to express ourselves through our writing and voice-mail, we are able to achieve so much more than if we were just talking to people about our ideas. So, for example, instead of talking about how amazing your clients are, tell them how much you appreciate them and how their work means a lot to you. Take your communication to another level!
The one piece of advice you’d give to bloggers who want to improve their blogs
The first and most important thing that you can do when you are just starting out as a blogger is find a mentor – someone who has been in your shoes, and is trying to do the same thing as you. Batch recruiting!
What The future of creativity holds – or how to dream Big!
There is no such thing as a “perfect” blog. The key here is to ensure that your blog meets your specific blogging needs, and the needs of the people who are reading your blog. So, what are those needs? The blog needs to be about something that your reader’s have an interest in – something that you have an experience or knowledge in – or that is interesting to you.
The future of creativity is exciting. It holds the promise of endless possibilities for each and every one of us as creatives. We can all do something amazing with our creativity, and through sharing our work with the world, we can all achieve our dreams and achieve success in our chosen fields.
