Blogging Frequency + Open Call

Happy Monday, folks!

I’m going to make an effort to blog more regularly. It wasn’t exactly my intention to blog on a frequent basis, but I need to develop more content to fill in the gaps. Most of you are brand new readers who deserve to know my intent. For more information on my introduction, please see my first post.

Some of you really enjoy this Open Call, and I have some lovely entries to share in the future. (If you haven’t yet submitted, click here.) I feel very inspired to keep going and collect more of your thoughts. I am featuring my first guest later this week!

In the future, you will find more content on the blog Sundays and Thursdays. Don’t be surprised if I throw in a few posts here and there - I’m still developing my blogging strategy. I’m curious to hear your thoughts…what would you like to see on the blog? What content subjects would you come back for every week? I anxiously await your comments, DMs, and emails. :)

Imagination

I am so excited to finalize the grand opening of Palmesque! I’ve spent a lot of time debating whether or not to add a blog to this site. As an introvert with anxiety, it’s not easy for me to open up to a crowd of strangers. I’m half expecting many of you to leave me hateful messages on social media and tell me that my art is ugly. It has taken me a long time to fully realize why I founded Palmesque in the first place. Allow me to give you the short version: I have an overactive imagination. Drawing pretty pictures stops the bad thoughts. I have a lot of bad thoughts. An overwhelming amount. It’s paralyzed me at times. I’m afraid of everything. Failure. Death. Cancer. Rejection. I can spin up a worst-case scenario faster than you can blink.

It was in my late 20s that I realized life can be a vacation, if you decide to treat it like one. Living with anxiety doesn't exactly put me in a position to live in a relaxed head space. Thus, Palmesque was born! I force myself to think about vacation as often as I can, and it makes me a better person.
