A new year, a new chance to start things fresh.
2015 was a challenging year leaving a team to start a new area at Fullsix Portugal, after being a part of a political campaign. As i enter 2016 on a new role as Head Of Data & Analytics after over 4 years building social media teams, the range of subjects that interest me nowadays are quite different than when i was more involved in interactive programming. From Analytics to Behavioural Economics, i needed a new place where to share some of the things that are currently on my radar and go beyond the usual ad campaign or pretty website.
After over 8 years publishing here, i no longer felt excited in finding new stuff to write about and inspire others with fresh ideas for digital creativity.
ASourceOfInspiration.com isn’t going away, but will become more of a bookmark of creative references, an archive of mostly links and videos. Most of my new writing will now be at ArmandoAlves.com, a self hosted blog, as i never got used to borrowed platforms such as medium or tumblr, while doing a few posts at Osocio.org or at my book review blog at notasdelivros.com (in portuguese).
With a great year ahead, i hope you follow me on this journey and say hello in the comments.
