I’ve been thinking a lot about this little space of mine lately. What it started out as, what I want it to become, how it’s being perceived in balance with how I think it’s being perceived.
It drives me nuts some days because I don’t always know the direction for Brave Girl. She’s had about 3 evolutions in 3 years.
Then it became my main outlet to share my brand design projects and guest blog. I designed the site and worked with my good friend and developer, Justin, to make it entirely customized. The About page is still my favorite.
Now, Brave Girl feels like a mix of all 3. Some of these categories either aren’t my love language at this time or can be refreshed so they’re more aligned with categories I love talking about more. BG is in a transition (aren’t we all?). After a lot of reflection, I want this space to maintain the essence of why it started while making space for the room she needs to grow. I want to show more of my graphic design work, more of my inspirations, and more of my life.
Life. Style. Design.
I also want it to be a space that fosters more connection. So one of the biggest things I’m looking to update is the comments section! I know I haven’t made it easy for you to share your thoughts with me here. It definitely wasn’t intentional and is a buggy part of BG that I want and need to improve for you. Do you agree?
Starting 2017, Brave Girl will have a little refresh to clean up the categories, post more consistently, and be more of a community that fosters creativity and human connection.
Thank you for all of your support over the years with Brave Girl! It truly lights me up to see every comment and connect with you on our desires, our inspirations, and our humanness. It keeps me going when I’m not always sure where BG is headed next. We’re all human and don’t know what’s next, no matter how carefully laid out our plans are. At the end of the day, Brave Girl is a visual representation of this. Of our messiness. Our wildness. The pull of our creativity in all its forms.
Most of all, Brave Girl is a pillar for all of us brave women and men who KEEP. SHOWING. UP.
Thank you for being here with me, thank you for showing up.
All the love, Em
