Quote of the Week: March 9-15

"Dream big and dare to fail" -Norman Vaughan

Here is a good motivational quote for this week. It reminds me to not give up on my dreams, and that failure is not a setback, but something to overcome.

What does this quote mean to you? How will you live by its message?"

Coffee Shop Thought: Coming Soon!

Happy Thursday everyone! I am getting ready to begin posting Coffee Shop Thought Thursdays. I will post bi-weekly thoughts to reflect on and respond to. My goal is that you will participate with comments and share what you think.

Now for an update on the progress of my blog:
Starting a new blog is a challenge, but I am so ecstatic that I have reached over 500 viewers in my startup month. You are the reason why I want to keep delivering great content, and I am slowly getting my blog on track. It has been difficult with my busy schedule, but I am dedicated to get my blog content up and running.

Right now, I am working on designing logos to make my content identifiable. I will then begin the process of web design to make my blog seem less like a template. My last step will be reaching social media. I plan to create an Instagram and Twitter account for The Informed Artist. You can already find me on Pinterest by clicking here or at the "Follow Me" box in the right-hand column.

Weekly Quote: March 2-8

image: Allison Gens
"I avoid looking forward or backward, and try to keep looking upward"
- Charlotte Brontë

I am starting my very first Weekly Quote with a quote by Charlotte Brontë and one of my favorite pictures I have ever taken (I even submitted it to National Geographic for the Your Shot contest, see that here).

This quote is a really good quote to live by. Looking upward can mean following God, or it could mean keeping your head up, or it could mean living in the moment that you are in now. It truly has an interpretation to whoever reads it.

What does this quote mean to you? Comment below if you want to share!

My Month in a Photo: February 2014

Image: Allison Gens
Here is a view of the Hocking River for my February photo. This was taken toward the end of the month when there was a big heat wave! I took this with my iPhone while I was out biking on the bike path.

I may share some of my photos from my photography class on here soon, I was going to use one of them for this post, but I unfortunately left my external hard drive at school when I left for spring break. So come back later for a post of some of my other February photographs.
