There is a lot of regurgitation going on. A lot.
Without naming names, I recently came across an office that had a lot of similarities to an office I had already seen.
A line of jewelry I fell in love with, and then saw the exact same line of jewelry on another website.
It feels similar to a phenonenon I have been noticing with blogging. "The repost". We see pretty pictures on pinterest and then repost.
I am guilty of it. I am either :
A) inspired by the pictures I repost so I don't think twice about it
or B) don't have time to come up with original content every single day (although I know it will set my blog apart and its what I love on other blogs...)
So is it bad blogging to repost? Bad designing to "borrow" heavily from another designer?
I'm not sure. I definitely don't like the sounds of it, but with the mass consumption that the internet allows, its becoming harder and harder to avoid.
So let me pose a question. How do you set yourself apart? As a blogger with your content or just as a human being. I want to know.
I know this is heavy chatter for a Friday but I'd love to hear from you.
Have a fabulous long weekend. See you all on Tuesday. xo
