Your Life’s Work

Austin Kleon celebrates his 15 years of blogging. Here’s him quoting himself from 5 years ago:

One little blog post is nothing on its own, but publish a thousand blog posts over a decade, and it turns into your life’s work. This blog has been my sketchbook, my studio, my gallery, my storefront, and my salon. Absolutely everything good that has happened in my career can be traced back in some way to this blog. My books, my art shows, my speaking gigs, some of my best friendships—they all exist because I have my own little piece of turf on the Internet.

If I died tomorrow, I’d still be happy at the trace I’d left both online and off. 💪
