If you read the beginning (7.1) of this interview you know that Cat Morley has been a few places and done a few things in her career as a World Designer. If you came to this week’s open comment night, you also know that Cat had a major role in Wizard of OZ written just for her.
Tonight a little more about the many things Cat has had going on in her life.
Cat, how did you end up as a blogger?
IÃ¢â¬â¢m a crusader with a hot spirit. When LogoWorks started showcasing logos that were remarkably similar to many, many other designers’ logos, I was swept into blogging along with others. Of course there were some bits that had to be in place first. I just happened to be test driving blogger for a client when it all came about.
Here’s how the story starts . . .
If you asked me a month ago about spending my precious time updating an industry or personal blog, IÃ¢â¬â¢d say, “Never!” Sure, I have a business blog (now sadly ignored) which IÃ¢â¬â¢ve spent time on, but IÃ¢â¬â¢ve always pooh-pooed jumping in and keeping a blog just for the love of it.
Many times on “The About,” (About.com’s graphic design forum) IÃ¢â¬â¢ve passed a verbal grin in Chris Gee’s direction when he went on and on about the wonders and power of blogging on his blog thepreparedmind.com. Not for me. I felt I had better things to do with my spare time.
I’m really glad she changed her mind.
Next: wait until you hear about Cat and the Queen of England!
