auxiliary content

Below is a collection of any auxiliary content that inspires, helps, or brings new understanding and enjoyment to the content I publish. I plan to continually update these lists as the blog grows and my knowledge of other content creators expands so please be sure to keep checking back in!

(V/B)loggers & Podcasts

I wouldn’t be writing this blog if it weren’t for other content creators inspiring me to do so. This list contains many of my favorite bloggers, vloggers and podcasts. These talented contributors offer original content and fascinating insights that positively force me to question my own beliefs and cultivate my own perspective and values as I navigate this next decade of life.

With a passion for all things design I wanted a way to visually demonstrate some of the big ideas and concepts I discuss throughout the blog. Graphics are a powerful tool, especially in today’s world with short attention spans and limited time. These visuals are essentially story telling that allow us to communicate clearly and concisely. Not to mention they’re fun to make! All graphics are created by yours truly. Please contact me for permission to use.
