What's So Great About Blogging?

 I really didn't want to write a blog, because I thought I'd run out of things to write about.  It has happened a couple of times, but for the most part I do come up with ideas.  Blogs are easy to set up. You can even write your post ahead of time & set to publish whenever you want at a later date.  There are templates to choose from for the design, colors, fonts, you name it.  It's actually fun.  After I got the hang of it, I added widgets.  I just created a new banner - what do you think? 

 Blogs help artists reach beyond the canvas or the computer screen and make contact with other people all across the world.  Blogs provide any creative-minded individual the opportunity to share their work with the world. Blogging, combined with social media and online art communities offers artists a unique opportunity for self-promotion, expanded viewership, and ultimately, contacts with buyers.  Although galleries are still important, most folks realize that the internet is where it's at.  Blogs allow artists to show works-in-progress. You can receive feedback and criticism before the work is finalized, make changes, and contemplate new ideas and suggestions.  Blogging can help bring the world to your art, and your art to the world.

  1. Love blog writing. (Mine: I wasn't sure I would be good at it at first, and it took me awhile to get into it, but now I am addicted! I post at least once every weekday and can't seem to run out if ideas. I even write guest posts for other blogs, and run two different Etsy team blogs. lol Just a little over-the-top.

  2. I started mine a year ago and am just now able to get back to it. I'm still trying to figure out how to make it look like I want.

  3. Thanks for your comments, MegasBeadedDesigns & Heather! I fiddle w/the looks & tone of my blog often. I recently went w/a new banner & all white back ground. Off to look for your blogs...
