Would you be interested in receiving my monthly inspirations?
I have been sharing my work and my inspirations through social media since I started MerryDay. I enjoyed sharing and receiving feedbacks but recently found that being on social media was quite distracting. To get more productive, I tried using Chrome's timer app to limit time being online first. The timer helped me so much that I spent less time on facebook and web browsing. Now I divide my time of each day into 2 sections : morning for any tasks/works that need computer and online service, afternoon for offline tasks—sketching, painting. I still do log in through my phone but not as much as when I am in front of the desktop screen. This helps me focus and be able to enjoy my free time in the evening reading books without feeling guilty of not being productive during the day.
How is this related to my merry newsletter? As much as I feel better about myself being more productive, I feel I have lost touch with all the online inspirations, friends from e-course groups, latest news from artists I am following. My solution is to schedule time to drop in all friends groups and sign up for the inspiring artists' newsletters and daily blog posts RSS feed from those I really admire so that I don't have to drop by their blogs ( which I always forget) and can easily read them directly in my mail. I love e-newsletters. They get you updated and offer you early-bird discount for any classes or products you have had an eye on. I especially love those written with care, not only promotions but with inspiring/helpful info from their expertise (I recommend Uppercase Magazine's newsletter).
Then I wonder if there is anyone out there who like my work but constantly miss my updates as they cannot be online all the time like I can't. I would love to get in touch with those who have cared and supported my art all along. Even if you have just happened to be here and don't know me at all, try browsing around this web, you may get general idea how my art style is, what I'm working on, what inspires me, and hopefully it will intrigue you enough to sign up for my newsletter. You can unsubscribe anytime!

I have just officially released this website, my portfolio site plus blog and everything about me, a few days ago. I feel relieved and ready to create new things for my creative journey. Merry newsletter is one of those things, let's see how far it can go!
