omg first page!

My Moleskine '10 (23-24)

Does anyone else have trouble with writing on the first page? I always find it a really daunting thing to actually write or draw something on it. I always feel like if I mess it up the rest of the book with be messed up too. Ive been known to rip the first page out and redo it because the first page wasn't good enough. When I was at school I used to avoid the first page, Hahah I sound like such a weirdo?

Anyway tomorrow I'm doing a presentation for my discourse. I'm doing it on self promotion and blogging, Exploring some social networking platforms, like Flickr, Society 6 and Behance Network, Talking about successful bloggers (see Fifi Lapin, Nubby Twiglet + Rumi) and talking about how there has been a shift from agency graphic design to Freelance via the internet. Oh And if anyone has any ideas for sucessful bloggers that I could talk about in my presentation please comment with your suggestions, It would really help me out! I'm talking about ones that have achieved sucess because of their blogs,

I uploaded a few pages from my Moleskines on Flickr if anyone is interested!
