My Digital Commonplace Book

After my last post I decided to let the idea of changing the purpose of my blog simmer, until I would feel a hunch to post or share something. Creating a structure or planning what this blog was going to be didn’t really work, trying to force it didn’t really work (let me tell you a secret – trying to force it hardly ever works), so I relied on what has always served me well – listening to my gut. Being observant enough to notice the hunch and listening to what the hunch would tell me.

A few days ago the hunch did speak to me. I found something I wanted to share. And with the urge I also knew what my blog was goingt to be about. Sharing bits and bobs I find, things I am curious about, things I am passionate about, weird stuff that makes me smile. Anything. Creating my commonplace book here.

I’ve always liked the idea of a commonplace book since I read about it for the first time in one of Austin Kleon’s tweets, that directed me to Ryan Holiday’s guide on “How and Why to Keep a Commonplace Book”.

I’ve since kept my analogue commonplace book, and now this place is going to be my digital one. A kind of a scrap book, if you will. Just so you’re not suprised, if the topics might seem random. I like randomness. A lot. It’s how my brain works. I hope you’ll stay for a bit.

Let me know what you think!
