Doodling is good for you.
I've always doodled. Sometimes, I doodle more than other times. I've started more doodling in the last few years when I started my art focus in earnest. It's an interesting correlation - I started art as a relief valve for stress. I started doodling more to get more design ideas. After reading this blog and watching this video, I think the two are intertwined. Can't tell which came first. After getting razzed for doodling in meetings and people commenting on how bored I must be, this little post and video shows that people get more out of listening when they doodle!
Regarding the new digs: I'm getting closer! I have the content of my first newsletter ready to go, and several newsletters after that. Right now, I'm working on all the mechanics of changing my brand. Running into some technical snags (what's new) with a dead computer, reloading software, etc. I hate to set a date and then miss it, so I'm going to hold off for now...if I can get the technical issues under control, I will project a date. Right now, it's too early to say.
In the meantime, I thought I'd just post a little note to say, "It's okay to doodle." :-)
