Alt summit love

alt edition link love / a thousand threads
If you’re spending a lot of time on the blogs this week and not headed to SLC, you probably feel like punching me right now. I’m sorry… I know. It’s a lot this time of year. It’s a lot for us all…

Outfits, media kits, business cards, blog updates — bloggers think about this stuff all the time, but for some reason when it comes down to crunch time (conference time) suddenly none of it feels like enough.

We want everything to be just that much better… or that much more organized… or just that much more new. (What is it about new clothes that makes them so much better than the rest? Even cheap new clothes from H&M. They win every time.)

So there’s a lot of “new” going on right now — a lot of organizing, a lot of perfecting. Or at least trying to perfect. And on one hand it’s totally overwhelming… but on another, and I think this is why we all have so much love and admiration for events like this, it’s also really inspiring.

There are a lot of really really talented creatives out there. And this is one time when you get to see them shine just that much brighter.

Stepping up your game might be a little stressful, but it’s also a blessing. One of many reasons we all look forward to conferences like this — whether we’re on the outside or in — is because they light a fire under our ass. They inspire us to do more, to create more, to refresh and renew… much like the new year. And what do you know, when it comes to the Alt Summit, the two coincide.

So ya, I’m obsessing. But that’s not always such a bad thing to do. We all do this thing called blogging because it’s what we love. The pressure to do more just reminds us of how much.
