How perfect is this quotation? We all know this is true, and yet personally I still need to see it written in front of me before I smack myself in the head. "Duh!" Of course great things take time. And sweat. And giggle fits. And tears. And lots of coffee... I have a point, I promise.
I've been getting many emails lately containing some pretty serious questions about blogging, personal branding and design in general – a lot more than usual. (This only seems fitting considering how quickly our online community continues to grow.) While I wish I had the ability to answer them all individually, I'm wondering if an advice column of sorts might be the way to go. And better yet, if it's not a question I can answer myself, I will see if I can reach out to some talented blogger or designer friends of mine to get it answered in the best possible way.
Now, I'm not an expert, but I have been at this going on 4 years, as well as the bookish grad school perspective to back me up. Epictetus is right - good things do take time, and if I can share with you some of the lessons it's taken me years to learn, I'm happy to provide you with even the smallest of shortcuts.
How do you all feel about this idea? Is this something you would be interested in? If so, do you have any questions to ask about personal branding, graphic design, social media, marketing, etc.? Consider the floodgates open... I'll try to pick at least one and get an answer posted later this week!
