Blog Review: Authentic Boredom

Authentic Boredom is a blog by @cameronmoll and he has this blog running since 2004. On his biography, it states “Cameron Moll is a designer, speaker, and author living in Sarasota, Florida (United States) with his wife and five sons. He’s the founder of Authentic Jobs Inc, among other endeavors. This site is a compendium of design, HTML5/CSS3, DSLR video, Apple, mobile, and other miscellaneous banter.”

This blog is the blog for his portfolio and business site. On this blog there is a wide variety of topics and articles about graphic design, history, theories, and more. This blog is like your personal source for design. It is very easy to read and understand, even if you don’t know anything about design. There are lots of articles where he offers his professional opinion about both web and graphic design.

Moll’s most recent post is about the application Meerkat, that I have not heard about before. This application allows you to broadcast live video with your phone. His point of view is genuine because he tells us about the experience he had with watching others live stream with his son was watching someone working at his desk.

My favorite blog post that I read was titled “How I Begin a Project.” Someone wanted to know his creative process. Moll then briefly explained his process for creating content. He showed how he created print, web, and video content. He also had multiple pictures of the sketches he created. He’s very transparent in his blog, which is a great quality to have.

I think Moll’s blog is successful because he follows good blogging practices, such as linking often, posting pictures, and he has a lot of great information to share with his readers. His blog posts vary from one to ten paragraphs, but never too lengthy. He is also great at web design and offers design tips and resources for his readers.

Be sure to check out his blog.

  1. Thanks for sharing! I went and checked him out, and I love the variety of his posts. Sometimes I feel as though people associate blogging with writing only, and it can be so much more than that. Have you followed him on other social medias?
