Fellow bloggers, party planners, designers… maybe you can relate! Have you ever had an idea that you were just about to execute and then BAM you see it posted on another blog or website. What do you do? Do you continue with the idea you had and risk being called a ‘copycat’ or do you just scrap it and loose out on an opportunity to create something you really had planned on doing.
Let’s just say, I’m going through this right now. I have a long list of things that I want to do and every where I look I see my ideas popping up left and right. Let me be clear, no one is copying my ideas – that’s not the issue because I haven’t told anyone about them. But recently I see them a lot. I pride myself on being unique so it makes me wonder if I need to start thinking outside of the box again, maybe I have conformed, I don’t know. It’s just a little frustrating for me because I also work full time so it probably takes me twice as long to produce something as the next designer. So I keep missing the 8 ball so to speak.
So anyone else feel like that occasionally? What do you do? Keep to your idea or scrap it and come up with another one?
