Why blog if you’re an artist? Same reasons as for anyone else: visibility, personal development, and/or community. These tend to flow together.
Today, the way we find people is on the web. No, you probably won’t sell much from a web site alone, but that’s how collectors, curators, and anyone interested can see what you do and contact you or come to your next show. If you’re marketing, be on the web. And what better way to promote your web site than from here?
Writing about your work or your artistic concerns, discussing them with others, are both ways to better understand what you’re about. Think sitting with friends at your favorite kitchen table, coffee shop, bar, laundromat, or wherever. Blogging is different for every blogger. Why not try it out here?
Would you like to form an art book club, start a landscape photography group, locate some potters to share a kiln? Say you want to have a one-night show at your place, or find someone else to do it with. Post a notice … here!
Did I mention I’m looking for regular authors, one time contributors, anybody who has something to post?
