Artist’s should blog!
Or so I’m told… or is that I’ve read?
Certainly many Artists do.
But it can be difficult to know what to write!…And some days you just don’t want to! – I might have mentioned that before.
So, do you try something new?
It can be really hard to come up with new ideas for blog posts. Especially when you’d rather paint! Best to leave that to a day when you’re on fire!
Do I blog about what’s irritating me?
Chances are 90% of the blog posts will be identical and bad. And you won’t be giving people something new. The odd rant is OK but readers might get bored with rants! Although some bloggers develop a very successful blog with skilled ranting.
Successful ranting really depends on your style. And it opens up discussion. Which is good!
Revisiting an old bl0g post then?
As you learn your ideas and understandings change. Revisiting a post can be energising.(We’ll ignore the demoralising if nothing’s changed, shall we?)
Whatever option you choose, regular writing and reading is the key.
Like any art form, practice improves your skills.
And sometimes you need to rethink you’re options and mix things up!
Which is where I’m at!
My dilemma is I see myself as an artist first blogger second.
Much as I love doing it, writing takes time! Time in which I prefer to paint.And I need to do much more painting!
So this week I’ve decided to concentrate on my first love and share more of my artwork. Like today’s new addition to the Milton Keynes inspired series above.
And I’m Spring Cleaning my blog!
Making some decisions as a result. I’m moving the posting days to introduce Monday Musings, Wednesday Work in Progress(WIP) and a Saturday Showcase!
