Introducing: The Creatives Project



Meet Archie, my potted plant. He's five months old and quite the introvert.

Hello there, my people!

One of the things I love most about writing is that it lets you tell someone else's story. This is a big part of why I got my degree in journalism: I love to get to know what makes people tick, what they are passionate about, and who they really are beyond the surface. While I may never get the chance to interview any of y'all face to face, this gnifty little thing called the Internet connects us! So without further ado, allow me to introduce you to.....

The Creatives Project!


*throws confetti*


(No? Just me?)

The Creatives Project is a series of short interviews with other bloggers and creatives, hosted here on the blog! I want to get to know y'all, hear about the projects you are most passionate about, what you're currently writing, baking, creating, etc. What artists inspire you? What are your biggest creative roadblocks? And how did you get into blogging?

If you can't tell, I'm pretty excited about this!



That's where you're wrong! Can you bake? Sing? Knit? Write? Dance? Paint? Maybe you love photography or filming YouTube videos or maybe you're a poet. Or maybe you have a loving, encouraging heart! Whatever form your creative passion projects take, I want to hear about them! YOU are creative.

So how do I get involved?

It's really simple to be a part of the project. Here's what you need to do:

Email me at acousticerin [at] gmail [dot] com
with the subject line "The Creatives Project: [Your Name]"
to let me know you're interested! Then I will put you on
the list and send over your interview questions!





For this project, I would like to incorporate 2-3 photos into the post, either of your personal photography, pictures of poems you've handwritten, etc. I will also need (1) head-shot of you for the post. If you're not comfortable with sending photographs, I'll ask you to send me a list of keywords that match your "aesthetic" so I can find or create visual content for the post! 

But what if I forget to answer the questions?
Is there a deadline for the project?


Me interviewing you except not really.

Nope, no deadline! The series will run for as long as there is interest. It may feature 2 bloggers, 3 bloggers or 45 bloggers! WHO KNOWS. It may even feature bloggers that I don't know yet! That's the beauty of this project. There's no rules, no guidelines - we are a community that is ever growing, learning and creating. I want to hear your story!  

What about you?

Do you want to be a part of the project? Is there something that you are passionate about creating?Any one have any fun Fall plans for this weekend? Love y'all!
