Earlier this year, I thought, hey, I should probably have a logo. I asked my sister Kathleen, who's an illustrator, if she could create one for me and I'd pay her.
Reenactment of convo:
Me: "Hey, sis, could you whip something up real fast that embodies my whole essence, and vibe, and style? Cool, k thx luv ya tonz byeeee!"
Okay, that didn't happen, but Kathleen was super busy so she couldn't do it anyways. And I also feel bad for always relying on Kathleen for anything art-related.
(I'm really painting myself in a bad light here, but it's fine, srsly—Kathleen and I are buds. Right, Kathleen? Right????)
Anyways, I ended up using 99designs.
Hey, blog-o-sphere! Welcome to my blog. I always try creating these things and then end up abandoning them after a few months, so here's the hoping this one will actually stick around.
Wow, what an encouraging beginning to a first blog post! I should be a motivational speaker.
Jokes aside (that was a real knee-slapper, wasn't it), I've been thinking of creating a blog for a while, and I thought I'd kick this off with my favorite online editing tools.
When I have a big editing project with a tight deadline, I'm always looking for ways to save time, be more efficient, and automate anything that can be automated. I really should learn how to do macros, but I haven't gotten around to that, so here are my favorite tools for now.
