Art Journaling a Blog Post

Serial Idea Executors, originally uploaded by All Things Bright.

I know.  Sounds strange.  But really, it’s just artsy note-taking of good ideas found in a great piece of writing.  

When I found The 99 Percent I think I actually gasped.  

You mean there are other creatives like me who brainstorm like crazy and feel sorta smart for a moment and then can’t get a one thing done?  Oh yes.  Not only do they exist, it appears there are many of us.  So many that this lovely old quote “Genius is one percent inspiration, ninety-nine percent perspiration” can be turned into a fantastic website.

Their copy says, “At 99%, Behance‘s think tank, we focus on what happens after inspiration—researching the forces that truly push ideas forward. Our profiles of proven idea makers, action-oriented tips, best-practices sessions, and annual conference are all designed to help you transform ideas from vision to reality.”

99 Percent has a great cornerstone blog post  “The 10 Laws of Productivity” that is gold.

Gold worth remembering.  I remember what I write down. 

And I wanted to see it again w/out just staring at a screen.

And I wanted to think through the ideas more thoughtfully than regular blog scanning.

So I art journaled a blog post. Sort of. The art consists of putting very concrete action steps into dreamy clouds.  We must weigh the clouds down a bit to get them to Earth, no?


I plan to do a lot more of these in the future.  How do you make sure you remember the really great stuff you read online?

How do I remeber all the great things I read online?
Well, sometimes I make notes, then can't remember where I put the note, but I know it is somewhere with all the other notes, not too organized in that department.

And, sometimes I add the link to my favorites bar on computer so I can get back to it later, that works a little better, although it is getting a little crowed other there.

Then there is stumble which is addicting and I have a list of great sites there also.

Goodness, I really don't know how I find anything!
