Post Your Blog's URL Here

Postby Carson Collins » Tue Apr 29, 2008 9:36 am

I've been reading some of the stuff suggested by Trevor's recent (and most excellent!) post, "Best of "Best of" art lists".

One thing that particularly got my attention was an article at the web site, emptyeasel.com, entitled, "7 Tools and 3 Essential Skills Every Artist Needs to be Successful Online", in which the author states that if you're serious about marketing your artwork on line, you absolutely must have a blog. :!:

A quick search of the forum revealed only one other discussion thread on this topic, it was started by Pesto Bong back in 2006 and basically went nowhere. Since PB (sadly) doesn't seem to be around here at fM any longer, I thought it might be worthwhile to start a new thread and see if we have any other bloggers here, and to exchange ideas about blogging. :idea:

I do have a blog but I don't think I'm really getting the most out of it. Please have a look at THE OCEAN SERIES and make comments and suggestions. :?:

Also, if you have a blog of your own, why not post the URL here?

Hi There, :D

I had two blogs set one up with google really quick and easy to start up, spent lots of time on it then it just disappeared. I thought that may happen so started another one with world press.com that also went down the tubes. I am starting one on my space now no idea if it will be any good so would like to know if anyone here has a blog on my space and if so how is it hanging for you. Anyone got a really successful blog and would like to share come on and tell us about it 8) :D

The blog that I had posted here no longer exists. My art blog is now at: http://jessicamckelvin.blogspot.com/

My personal blog is at: [urlhttp://www.xanga.com/princess_riceball[/url]

I've simplified my use of the two by mostly copying my artist blog entries from my personal blog.

Well can I say wonderful work enjoyed your site very much right up my street so to speak. fantastic art and thanks for the invite to view it. 8)

Hey Quinzel, :wink:
Another great site to view though I understand you are still busy working on new pieces I tried to leave a comment so hope you got it OK its been a great help to me

[quote="Quinzel"]I used to have a livejournal blog, but now I have two xanga blogs. One is personal and one is my art blog. I'd probably do better to host on a different site, but I wasn't happy with livejournal and I'm not familiar with any other blog site. http://www.xanga.com/j_mckelvin[/quote

I have a blog on wordpress.com ... http://www.faeriemajikk.wordpress.com
I think BLOGS are awesome.
I thought about putting my blog on my Space but...you pretty much need to be logged in to view anything on there and not everyone is on my space.
Wordpess is really good and have never had any probs...with fantastic stats also.

Wordress is good, and I just started using Drupal, another easy and really expandable CMS. Nice site anyway. 8)

Thanks,
I had tried a couple of blogs and none of them fit, i either didn't like the interface or it allowed too much spam comments...never heard of Drupal.
