The Creative Side: The Other Dan Erickson Blog

Are you creative? If you are, you’ll love The Creative Side. I believe that simple living and creativity are closely related. When we simplify our lives, we have more time and energy to practice the creative arts.

Before I blogged at Hip Diggs, I blogged at Last summer, I decided to shut the Dan Erickson site down for a complete redesign. I started from scratch and came up with The Creative Side.

I’ve been creating stuff all my life. I play a bunch of musical instruments. I’ve written hundreds of songs and poems. I’ve written several books. And of course, I’ve done a lot of blogging. But The Creative Side isn’t just a platform for my own work.

Discover Your Creativity

My goal is to help others find and develop their creativity. If you or someone you know wants to get more creative, send them over to The Creative Side. Check out my work with me page to see how I can help. Or just read the posts and sign up for the newsletter.

I’ll still be putting more of my focus into Hip Diggs and simple living, but creativity has always been a part of who I am. I’d love to share that creativity with you. Visit The Creative Side.

Update: The Creative Side is now simply called, “Life”
