Kartooner: A Fresh Start
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, itâ€™s time to switch directions and start anew.
From the get go Iâ€™ve always envisioned this site as an outlet for experimental creativity and to share the results of such with whomever was interested.
This siteâ€™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, Iâ€™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.
