Happy First Birthday Keenanevans.wordpress.com :)
Last year on September 30th I came home from work and told my roomie Ryan that I wanted to start a blog. Not knowing anything about blogs… or really what I was going to blog about…I went to wordpress.com and started up Keenanevans. I was convinced wordpress was the best because I didn’t want the word BLOG to be any part of my site – because as some of you may know I think the word BLOG sounds ugly. Ha, last year September 29, 2008 was definitely a turning point in my life. I started documenting my personal creative progressions and likings. I remember begging Erika to run around Soho with me at night to take my banner picture :) haha I am so dumb.
Anyways, I am proud of how far this website has come and am very excited and anxious about my future in design. Words don’t express how thankful and lucky I am to have such a supportive community of family and friends. Being so far away from home this dorky website has helped me feel connected and tied to home, my past, and share a piece of me with you.
This post is a collaboration of photographs that I am using right now on a project I will hopefully be able to share shortly and others I currently enjoy. Visual Bon Appetite
