I got an email from a friend today who’s a budding illustrator out of Chicago. The exchange turned out to be interesting. I think it may be helpful for a lot of creatives trying to make it in the world of design. Specifically, how do you get your work blogged?
From my friend:
This may seem like a bazaar question, but I’m curious how you have gone about getting featured on design blogs. Is it simply due to the blogs doing searches in the netscape and finding you or do you or someone else submit to them? \
Honestly… I have not giant game plan or secret formula for this.
here’s the corny stuff:
just be brave. Do lots of work. Do lots of projects. Don’t be afraid to pull the trigger and put work out into the world. Don’t beat a dead horse. Only show off things you love and I’m sure other people will love them. Work when you don’t feel like it.
Finally, be nice to everyone and consistently put out good work. It pays off. It just takes some time.
What do you guys think?
