What is a creativity blog, anyway? That is an interesting question. One which has taken deep study to realize how best to communicate. Getting it down to the elevator pitch, you know the 15 seconds you have to answer the dreaded 'what do you do'? I suppose this is important in tricky situations, particularly if you are dealing with someone who has the attention span of a nat. Maybe this graphic will help. Basically this is a 'journey map', an overview of the ways to discover and benefit from the content of this creative blog. There are 3 silos running vertically which represent the main categories, with 2 special ones off on each edge.

I am wondering what specific activities people consider creative? Where are the areas of focus? Is there a cluster of common practices or is it quite individual? Question #3 from my survey; this one is super interesting. When I put up the multiple choice answers, I focused on the things I was most interested in at the moment. I was curious to see the other ways people practice a creative spirit. (Maybe I should have phrased it that way!) In any case, the comments reflect many other activities and even, "ways of being" which are self defined as creative. I love it. Just the spirit I was hoping for. Of the pre-selected, limited choices the top 3 picks are as follows:

  • 58% for DIY, home improvement projects
  • 51% for Drawing, colouring or doodling
  • 47% for Photography
