Why I Admire Rabin Rendle?


I often browse blog posts of a few get inspired in writing, learning new tips about block themes and just keeping myself updated. One of those people is Robin Rendle, a designer at Sentry and staff writer at CSS-Tricks and what I like most about him is about sharp-witted style of writing.

I must admit that I most have read all of his notes, which he writes very regularly, an inspiration for me to write as frequently as possible on this site too. The other day, I was reading one of his notes, which I found is so honest, raw and canny, I thought to bookmark it in verbatim below:

I can be whoever I want and no-one can tell me otherwise. I can be funny or dark, a romantic or a raging goth. I can be a typographer, a web designer, a poet. Tomorrow? My accent can change, the colors revert, typefaces flipped inside out; I can change everything about this website and reimagine who I am. Edit the bad or worrisome or downright embarrassing stuff out, throw away the unsavory stuff, until I’m only showing you me at my very best.

Without the safety of this website my flaws and vices are clear: I’m often lazy and uncoordinated. I don’t have a lot of natural social grace (or rather it takes a long time for me to warm up to charming). My ego gets in the way all the time, and I’m so very jealous of everyone around me. Also: I’m perpetually, completely, infinitely terrified of everything.
