Hey everyone! Despite the title, no I’m not taking a trip of some sort, unfortunately. I know I haven’t made a post in a while and I kind of wanted to give you guys a brief update on what’s going on with me right now. If you follow me on Twitter you probably know that I have been around and I’ve been a bit busy with the new semester starting. That being said this is my second to LAST semester so things are really starting to get crazy already. I am going to have a two portfolio reviews soon as well as a public reading within the next couple months.
If you guys need a refresher, I am a Graphic Design and Writing double major so I have plenty of work right now. I feel like I’ve committed pretty fairly to this blog so I really want to continue it and maintain it despite everything else on my many plates. So…that’s exactly what I’m going to do! I can’t promise when or how many posts you’ll get but they will happen, that I can definitely promise. If you guys get lonely and start to miss me feel free to visit my Twitter page @melfranco17, where I am on there daily! I also try to incorporate articles and other art and writing sources on there so if the idea of reading tweets on the life of a college girl don’t interest you, don’t worry, it’s not all about me.
So yes, I will have two major events in my infancy as a professional coming up soon! I’m planning on putting some of my process and projects on here so look out for those as well. I think I covered everything I wanted to say and I just want to thank you guys for your constant support by reading this blog. Blogging is no longer required for my classes so right now it’s something I am choosing to do and you guys give me the push to do it simply by visiting. I recently had my four-year anniversary with WordPress, which I can’t even believe, and I’m amazed at this blog and what its accomplished. I never expected anyone to read what I was posting since it was just a class requirement and I was so new to the blogging world. Since I started I learned to love blogging and not just because of the writing aspect but also because of all of the people I’ve been able to interact with. This blog continues to amaze me and it is something that I want to continuing doing for a long time. So thank you guys, and here’s to a new semester of blogging! Until next time!
I know that everyone is probably off celebrating the New Year but I wanted to make a quick post. This year has really been amazing for me professionally and personally and this blog has been a big part of that! I always appreciate the feedback on my blog and love hearing from you guys. Not only does it show me that you guys are interested in what I’m writing but it also encourages me to make more posts. Also I want to give a big shout out to my Twitter followers old and new.
Never did I ever imagine that I would have 140 something followers on Twitter tuning in to what is going on in my life. It really is amazing since I’m just this lowly graphic design student who loves finding inspiration online. I’m just really getting started in my professional career and I can’t wait to share more of my work with you guys. So thank you guys for an amazing 2014 and best wishes for the New Year! Until next time!
Hey everyone! I just wanted to do a quick blurb, I think that’s what this is, about a newish way to contact me! You guys may have seen my Twitter feed on my blog but in case you haven’t its there! Some feel free to tweet me, I’d love to hear from you guys and I always love seeing your comments. Well that’s all I wanted to say so until next time!
Hey everyone! This is a little different from things I normally post on here but I thought I’d share my thoughts with you today! I was really surprised when I got several surprising notifications from WordPress today. I got on here with the intent to write a blog post (which I will do, I promise) and I got distracted by the fact that my blog has a had good number of visits just on this day. Its kind of amazing to me how that happens because all of a sudden there was this burst of interest, which is really awesome. On top of that I now have 100 followers!!! Yay! Thank you guys!
It really does mean a lot though because this blog was born from a class requirement and I never thought I’d have anyone read this blog much less comment. I know I’ve said this before but the fact that people actually read this blog and interact with it is really what keeps me in check. Reality is that I could just throw a couple of images and a couple of lines of “thoughts” and still meet my class requirement. Although I’d never do that because I just can’t. I feel like I need to put my all into everything I do or not do it at all, and this results in many sleepless nights but in the end its worth it to me. I just like putting my best, or close to it, out there.
Knowing that people are reading this blog is just another push to put something meaningful on this blog so this is just a thank you! This blog has become so much more than I thought it would and its thanks to my followers and readers so thank you guys! Be sure to look forward to an explosion of posts since I’m a little behind on my post count. I am now obligated to catch up because I told you this and you now expect it. Anyway, thanks again and until next time guys!
Hi everyone! I’ve started another semester of school so that means more consistent blogging, yay! I was pretty busy over break, more than I wanted to be, so I kind of took a break from blogging for awhile. I’ve been back at school for two weeks now so a post is going to go up very soon! I just wanted to let you guys know what I’ve been up to and why I disappeared for a little while. I’ve already started so interesting projects so I’ll be sharing my process on some of these with you guys so you can kind of see the things I’ve been doing! Thats all for now but see you guys soon!
Hey everyone! I know things were really slow on here during the summer but I really wanted to focus on my artwork and more specifically my drawing. I just wanted to let you know since a new school year has started I’ll be posting more frequently on here! Yay! So I hope you look forward to that and there will be some changes on here that will be different from what I was doing before. I really want to personalize this blog more so I hope to add more of my school projects on here and other stuff I’m doing as well! That’s all for now but I hope you’re looking forward to this year as much as I am! See you in my next post!
Hey Everyone! I just wanted to make you all aware of something that will be going on around the internet tomorrow in honor of the Sandy Hook Elementary School victims and their families. Tomorrow at 9:30am ET several websites and users have decided to pause all online activity have a moment of silence to honor the victims of this shooting. I just found out about this otherwise I would have mentioned it sooner but I thought it was still worth mentioning incase any night owls like myself will read this (0r if you’re in a different time zone). I think that this is a great idea and a great way to show the families of these victims that they are in are our thoughts and prayers. Just take a moment out of your day, even if it’s not at the time that this is going on. You can pledge to do this and learn more at causes.com. The direct link to the page is here: http://www.causes.com/causes/807161-stand-with-sandy-hook/actions/1716727?reposter=787922#comments, but you can also click on the badge right across from this post and that will take you there too. I hope you guys join in and make sure to spread the word. Don’t worry about being on time, it’s the thought that really counts. See you guys soon, take care.
