Blogging Reboot

While I have been dabbling with blogging for a while, I don’t feel that I had any particular direction.  The entries were more of a chore or simply for cataloging.  I certainly haven’t had much coherence in entries.  Recently, I have been experimenting on different platforms and came to realize that perhaps I wasn’t thinking of blogging correctly.  I was trying to figure out how to have one blog fit all my needs.  There was no way to make that work.

I will be keeping four blogs in some fashion or another moving forward:

In Many Worlds - will be my personal blog.  I want to explore how I maintain balance as I maintain my responsibilities at work, in school, and in life.  I will be including some reflective pieces as well as more current musings.

Daydreaming About Spacewill serve as a log for my school work.  I want to catch my process and my drafts, as well as thoughts about my education.

reVisionedwill be used to report what is capturing my interest.  I foresee posting links and media, sometimes with short commentary.  This blog will feed into Twitter, and some of the posts will make their way into my other blogs.

Designing Wellnessis going to be my more ‘professional’ blog.  I have set up my own domain to self-host this blog.  I want to explore and share my insights on healthcare design, the intersections of hospitality and healthcare, and evidence-based design.  I am particularly impact on the affect of design on clinical outcomes, experience of stakeholders, and healthcare systems.

I am sure there will be evolution of all these blogs as time goes on.  Honestly, I hope I haven’t taken on more than I can handle.  Regardless, the experience will be rewarding.

Blogging Again

I’ve been planning on starting a new blog for a while.  I felt a little limited by Blogger and tumblr.  I feel a little bit over my head with WordPress, but I figure that I can learn as I go along.  My last blog Dreaming About Space was very much a class project.  It would have been too much work to recycle it.  I have been trying to delineate what I wanted this blog to be for so long, and I eventually realized I was procrastinating.  I may not know exactly the endpoint, but there has to be a startpoint…and this is it.

designing wellness is my chance to share my thoughts on healthcare and design.  I want to explore clinical outcomes, experiences, and beautiful spaces.  I want to think about healthcare systems, particularly in terms of how people access care in non-traditional ways.  I am sure this will be an evolution, but I have to start somewhere.
