me and a creative low


mein kurs "blogging your way" bei holly of decor8 und leslie of a creative mint geht in die schlussphase...in den letzten wochen bin ich wirklich viel zum nachdenken gekommen...mein kopf ist ständig am arbeiten...soviel informationen...soviele ideen für unseren blog...und kennt ihr das auch, dass es manchmal dann soviel neues ist...das man verarbeiten muss und umsetzen will...dass man dann manchmal nicht mehr selber aktiv werden kann...man befindet sich in einem art vakkum...es geht nicht vorwärts...es geht nicht rückwärts...man sitzt fest...so geht es mir heute...wir sollen als hausaufgabe drei neue dinge auf unserem blog umsetzen...wirklich und ich als absoluter anfänger in technischen fragen, sitzt da schau ins leere und denke gerade...oh mein gott, wo fang ich an...puh...stop...und das sind genau diese momente, wo man sich selber blockiert, soviel erwartungen in sich selber setzt und dann geht oft nichts mehr...kennt ihr das auch?...ich wusste noch nicht mal über was ich heute schreiben sollte...aber dann kam in mir das gefühl auf, dass ich auf unserem blog doch selber mehr präsent sein wollte...authentischer...mehr von mir zeigen...auch wenn keiner einen kommentar hinterlässt...denn komischer weise habe ich bei allen posts, bei denen ich mehr über mich und meine gedanken geschrieben habe, nur wenig oder kein feedback bekommen...seltsam, aber wahr...vielleicht liegt es an meinem schreiben...ich hoffe nicht...was meint ihr? ...was ist euch an einem post wichtig?...nur die visuelle inspiration oder auch ein persönlicher inhalt?...würde mich wirklich interessieren...und was macht ihr, wenn ihr in einem kreativen tief seid?...
es ist wirklich befreiend mal so über seine gefühle zu schreiben...und ich habe auch einen post für heute...hej so schnell...;)...wir sind ja alle nur menschen, oder?...also lasst mich nicht im stich...freu mich über eure antworten...bis später...



my course "blogging your way" by holly of decor8 and leslie of a creative mint goes into the final stage ... in  the recent weeks i have really got much to think ... my head is constantly at work ... so much more informations ... so many ideas for our blog ...and do you know that too, that sometimes it is so much new ... that you have to handle and want to implement it ... so that you then sometimes can not become active by yourself ...you are in a kind of "vakkum "... it does not go forward, not backwards ... you are stuck ... so it is going with me today ...as homework, we should implement three new things on our blog ... really and as an absolute beginner in technical, i´m sitting there looking into the empty and just think ...oh my god, where do I start to ... ugh ... stop ...and these are precisely those moments where you blocked yourself, set too much expectations in you, and then often goes nothing ...you know that? ...I had no views on what to write today ...but then came over me the feeling that i wanted to be more present on our blog...more authentic...to show more of myself...even if none leave a comment ...for instance, i have get to all of my posts, where i have written more about me and my thoughts, only little or no feedback ... strange but true ...perhaps it is due to my writing ... i hope not ... what do you think?... what is important to you in a post? ... only the visual inspiration, or even a personal content? ...would really interest me ... and what do you do when you're in a creative low? ...
It is truly liberating to write about your feelings at times ... and I also have a post for today ... hej so fast...;)...we're all only human, right? ... so do not let me down ... i´m glad about your answers ... until later ...

  2. Dear Ines, Creative low, oh no, not you! Look at the fabulous photograph you have created. You have been a wealth of information and now that I have met you through the BYW I will be stopping by more often and will, now and then, leave a comment.

    Creative low? Nein, nicht Sie.

  4. I would have loved to take this course. I really like your blog. I think it is so important to write about things you are genuinely passionate about or at least like. This is your space and it needs to reflect you. Keep up the great work.

  8. Ines,
    I love your blog! But nobody can be "on" every day. Sometimes you just have to give it space. And I personally love to hear more about you! I think that would make your blog even more special. You must do what feels right to you, not what brings the comments...I don't think comments are necessarily the best indicator of approval, anyway...But that's me. Hang in there--breathe! and don't give up...Oh, and lovely pic, too!!!

  9. Liebe Ines,

    ich denke, Kreativität braucht Freiraum, um sich entfalten zu können, also Zeit und Muße. Und wenn man gerade nicht kreativ sein kann, weil einfach zu viele Eindrücke und Ideen auf einen einwirken, dann lass es zu. Die Kreativität findet dich. Manchmal braucht sie nur ein paar Minuten zum Durchatmen :-)

    Visuelle Inspiration ist in meinen Augen das Eingangstor zu einem Post, aber wenn es hinter dem Tor, sagen wir, dem Garten es an persönlicher Note fehlt, dann ist letztendlich auch der Zauber des Eingangstores nicht mehr gegeben. Ich denke, wie immer, ist die goldene Mitte, eine Mischung aus visuellen und persönlichen Elementen (und die Leidenschaft mit der man schreibt, wird ein aufmerksamer Leser spüren), ein schöner Weg. Mach weiter so!

    Ein schönes Wochenende wünscht Dir

    Annemarie

  12. Hey Ines, what a honest post!

    Everyone has a creative breakdown every now and then, but trust me, it'll go away....really! Just try to do something else, like reading or going outside. This is always helpful to me.

    And about having a blog: I think it's nice when people share some personal things too. You don't have to tell your whole life, but it often makes someone more 'real' to me.

    Well, good luck! And I'm sure you'll manage :)

  13. Liebe Ines, kreativ war das Hass-Wort in unserem Studiengang :) Man kann nicht sagen, dies oder das ist NICHT kreativ und man sollte seine eigenen Werke auch danach nicht beurteilen. Jeder hat Talent und dieses gilt es zu finden. Mach das was dir den größten Spaß bringt und nicht das, was du glaubst das andere hier (im Blog) sehen wollen. Das was dir am leichtesten fällt, das was dich brennend interessiert, das was dich in den Fingern juckt - nur das! Sich darauf zu konzentrieren, wenn einen die Ideen und Eindrücke überfordern, hilft. Pick dir das richtige raus ;)

  14. i love when you write from your heart. if people don't
    comment it might because they don't know how to
    express those sentiments themselves.

    photos are lovely, too, but i am a little disappointed
    if bloggers don't write anything to say about their own
    photos.

    you have so many creative thoughts flowing. the trick
    is know which one to pull down and write about.

  17. Ines, I think it is great when you share your heart a little more & share about your life in an authentic way. Maybe people are more hesitant to comment on these posts because people are not always ready to be vulnerable, or don't know how to respond, but I think it means a lot & helps people along on the journey. I think you're blog is wonderful because it's a reflection of you, and you are such a sweet, giving person. Keep it up, girl!

  19. Dear Ines, I admire your courage to be open about your feelings. That you just wrote this post instead of keeping those words only in your head.

    I find it hard to really connect with other people, it might have something to do that I don't open up easily.

    With this post and all your interaction in the BYW forum, you encouraged me to open up a little too. Thanks :-)

    xx Petra

  20. I think I appreciate posts like this very much... you share so much of yourself and it feels very real! Visual inspiration is such a subjective thing, but it's always good on the eyes to add something like the lovely quote you've done here. Inspiring, keep believing;)
