What Web Designers Can Learn From A Florist

Posted in Tips, Web Design2 years ago • Written by 10 Comments

It took time before the editors approved this idea. I agree with their concern. 1WD (and almost all genuine blogs) have a plethora of inspirational articles that aspire to inspire readers like never before. Most end up as half-read, sometimes even by the loyal readers of that blog. Somewhere, something surely goes wrong.

I don’t know if I am aware of the original set of juices that conspire in the making of an inspirational punch but I can assure you that I won’t be trying to inspire you with the upcoming discussion. I really don’t believe in inspiring someone. See, if XX years of lifetime (where XX is your age) hasn’t been enough to inspire you then a 2000 word article cannot help you. And, please don’t tell me that you haven’t faced an hour of harsh reality in your complete lifetime which could have led you towards some form of inspiration. Moreover, you really don’t need inspiration if you are living such a comfortable life. Do you?
