Hi! I’m Serena. I started blogging here at WordPress three months ago. I learned a few things on my own and from fellow bloggers, but now I’d like to learn more through the larger blogging community. So I signed up for WP’s Blogging 101.
Who am I? I’m a graphic designer living in San Diego, California. Most of what I do is print design and production with Adobe Indesign and Illustrator. I enjoy my busy day job, but there’s a lot of creative work that I don’t do anymore, such as photography, painting, and writing.
Why did I start a blog? I wanted a creative outlet. I wanted to get out of my comfort zone (not an easy thing for me). And I knew that a public blog would hold me accountable.
The tougher question for me was “What exactly will I put on my blog?” My original thought was to post some photography, illustrations, and writing. But as I started to get back into photography, which I hadn’t done for some time, I started to enjoy it again.
So my plan now is to do what feels good and spend time on photography for awhile. I’m quite rusty still, but I hope to improve quickly. Later this year, I plan to add some personal artwork.
I’m glad I joined WordPress’s community. There are a lot of talented and thoughtful people here, from all over the world. It’s a great mix of young and not so young, amateur and professional.
And I’m looking forward to meeting others in this session of Blogging 101!
