Bob Dylan made beautiful words as well as melodies. In his opinion, “A man is a success if he gets up in the morning and gets to bed at night, and in between he does what he wants to do.”

Treat every day as a space for doing what you love. Eg. Trolling the internet for charts! I know reddit can be a scary place, but I do recommend exploring the depths of r/Charts, r/DataIsBeautiful, r/Infographics, and of course r/QuotesPorn!

If you are not following I Love Charts today, you should. Some very lovely charts from the Chartist In Residence, Maggie Appleton.

ilovecharts:

I’m thrilled to announce that next Wednesday, May 22, Maggie Appleton will be doing a Chartist in Residence.

I first ran into Maggie’s work thanks to a few of her rather ingenious charts of quotations (like the one below) that made their way to my inbox. Maggie is an illustrator-designer-chartist with a penchant for anthropology, tea, and illuminating quotations and we will be giving her the keys to the blog next Wednesday to do whatever she choses for the entire day. Please tune in to see some brand new charts and illustrations and whatever else she decides to bring to the table with her unique charting style. Should be awesome!

Looking forward to this!

Everyone knows how it feels when a big idea is generated in your mind. Exhilarating, thrilling, and exciting are all words to describe that feeling of breakthrough and discovery. But how would you visualize this feeling? What does the generation of a big bold idea look like?

The Noun…

Another reason to love The Noun Project.

“Hey hey, it’s a beautiful day, get out and get it before it blows away. That’s right: sun today, but wind tomorrow so

use

it

wisely.

Put a smile on, smell the flowers and don’t forget to call your mother. And another thing too,

you

look

beautiful.

So if you’re good enough for me, you should be good enough for you. And to Amber on 5th street: you should be good enough for him too.

Stick around all day, I’ll be playing the drums of your ears and giving you everything that you need to hear. All coming to you, from me, here at the Spot, the only spot on your dial. Remember, Carpe Diem and see the day, because today is the

only

day

you got.”

If the goal is to get attention or exposure on Pinterest, there’s one thing to consider with your pictures: go vertical.
