I have enjoyed creating several artist websites in the past few weeks, which I love doing, and as add features to a website, some artists want a blog others don't, which causes me to wonder about the value for artists of having a blog. Here are a few of the reasons I think having a blog are important.
I've followed quite a few mosaic artists websites and blogs over the years and each blogger approaches their blogs in a unique way - there isn't a "right way". Some use their blogs to share a process or technique unique to them, others share their insights, many use their blogs to promote their workshops, and some are personal reflections - there are many ways to create an interesting blog that will keep followers coming back to your website. Blogging gives you an opportunity to communicate your art and your views to the world. The most important thing about blogging is to blog.
Having a professional website that communicates who you are, shows your art beautifully and engages the viewer is crucial these days. Not everyone is going to find you on FB, Instagram or other social media sites - it's important to cover all the bases and to utilize your blog and website to reach your goals. It takes time, for sure, to maintain all the social media sites you might be connected to, but the benefit will out weigh the frustration.
Here are just a few mosaic artists websites and blogs that I follow you'll note the variety of styles, all great and helpful.
I'd love create a professional, exquisite website and blog for you. Contact me:
