Pick my brain: random ideas on art, business and creativity from my former self

I was taking a look on my blog for early posts and discovered I have HUNDREDS of saved drafts for post ideas I began but never finished… I started this blog in 2011 and didn’t actively start using it until 2014 – what’s interesting is that my focus and ideas haven’t changed much, but I was surprised to have 90% inspiration and 10% execution.
