I currently find myself at a bit of an impasse (hence the clever title of this blog post). It’s an impass on many levels, but for now let’s focus on the professional one.
For starters, I’m having trouble finding things to talk about on this blog. Part of me thinks I should post more “design”-related topics (I am a designer after all). But, honestly, those types of posts always seem forced – and it makes me feel like a pompous ass. “Oh, I’m such a great designer, you should listen to me and do it this way, blah, blah, blah”. I could always write about personal stuff (like I did on NewInPhilly.com), but I’m always worried I might cross that invisible line… “Why did you post about our date?!?”
On the flip side, what is and isn’t okay to talk about when it comes to your day job? I’m sure I could post “we have a cafeteria at Urban” or “our Christmas party featured indoor ice skating and arcade machines”. But what if I were to post something like “sometimes I think Urban isn’t the right fit for me :(” or “my coworkers have feet for hands!!”.
That would be pretty interesting… if I were to write that …but my coworkers don’t have feet OR hands!!
