One of the blogs I try to keep up with is written by Erik Sagen. The blog, known as Kartooner.com, has been around for a while now, and while I hate to see it change drastically, I know that he is doing what is best for both his own creativity and his audience (me).
After 4 years of writing, off and on, about a variety of things such as odd thoughts, close calls, success (and failure) and other things now relegated to the archives, it’s time to switch directions and start anew.
From the get go I’ve always envisioned this site as an outlet for experimental creativity and to share the results of such with whomever was interested.
This site’s focus was never meant to be excluded to just a blog, but due to my interests in creative writing it just remained. Like Anton, I’ve been ready for quite some time to move away from just being a blog and realign (not that kind of realignment) my interests and the intentions of this site.
What intrigued me the most is his idea for his archives, and something I am seeing catch on more and more, moving them to paper. That’s right, he will be taking some of his best from his archives and using Lulu, a self publishing platform and printing up a copy or two.
Check out his blog for all the details and thoughts behind his restart.
