I recently took a workshop via General Assembly on Blogging: how to market the blog, increase readership, and even profiting financially from it. So, what is this blog all about? WHY DO YOU EXIST?!

There’s a lot that I talk about. Most of it being personal understanding and experiences related to design. Perhaps, I’m just a young voice echoing in the empty darkness of the interweb. I like to update you guys (♫“hello, darkness my old friend”♫) on what I am doing, planning to do, or wish to do.

This serves as a time capsule: to know what my thinking was and to see how far I’ve come. I talk a lot about weakness and failure because I have learned a lot from it. Personally, I believe I am reaching a point in my mental curation of aesthetic that I am headed in a direction that is understood as good design.

So, what am I doing? I am hopefully creating a kickass Instagram feed that mixes artistic photography, design sketches, and some decent captioning. To catalyze this, I have started several series that build off of my Insta name omarandworld: #omarandcity, #omarandpeople, #omarandsketch.

And, I haven’t left the world of video either. Short films soon to come especially now since our (a team of Yellow Jackets) entry into the Redbull Soapbox Race has been accepted!

There’s plenty in the works, and I’m excited to see it all come together. In the meantime, check out my new parody news blog for some good laughs!
