Round up: Should you talk about your mistakes?
Lorelle, of Lorelle on WordPress, has a series of posts up that are blog exercises for you.
This post: http://lorelle.wordpress.com/2013/07/15/blog-exercises-blog-your-mistakes is about blogging your mistakes and why you might want to.
That’s a bit of a theme that’s been coming up lately in what I’ve been reading. In the book, Homeward Bound: Why Women Are Embracing the New Domesticity by Emily Matcher, the author talks about all those home design and cooking blogs where the children and always perfect and well dressed, the projects elaborate, the meals gorgeous and healthy too.
And how of course, no one’s life is really like that.
Those of us who blog about our creative process, of course we want to show our best work too, which can lead to the appearance that we’re like those perfect home chefs who never ruin a meal.
Ebony Love recently responded to that perception in this most, Sometimes I Just Don’t Want to: http://www.lovebugstudios.com/2013/07/12/crapology-101-and-sometimes-i-just-dont-want-to.
And I just blogged about a mistake last week, here: http://creativetexturetools.com/news/2013/07/18/these-things-come-in-cycles-and-reflections-on-working-alone
What about you? Do you blog about your jewelry? Would you ever blog about a mistake?
