I finished reading Tara Frey’s book over the weekend, and I am determined to be a more consistent and reliable blogger.
- * I will post at least 3 x per week & include pictures
- * I have set my blog to show only 10 posts
- * I have been leaving comments for other bloggers
* I tried to make my blog clean and simple
I find the thought of contacting everyone on my sidebar links and asking for permission daunting, but I am determined to clean it up. It started as more of a convenience for me to keep track of spots to visit but likely needs some dusting and cleaning.
I took a bunch of photo’s this weekend with my son’s camera, he lost the cord to synch to the computer, fortunately my blackberry cord worked. I’m going to load Photoshop Elements on my laptop and try some of the techniques for digital framing Tara suggested. Usually I just scan my journal pages at work on our huge color copier as the one above. I know I can do better and make things more interesting. Hope you’ll check back sometime and see if things are improving…
Yesterday was so much fun meeting so many bloggers at the Blogging for Bliss party.
I have always been too shy to really leave comments and interact, thinking somehow I don’t really know enough about blogging, or somehow my blog isn’t a “real” blog -just me fooling around. I am not sure why but I decided it really is time to fully plunge into the blog pool and not just dunk in my little toe. I am still working my way through the party list and hugely enjoying all the eye candy and all the amazing creativity that abounds, it is awesome and humbling and so inspirational! My copy of Blogging for Bliss arrives tomorrow from Amazon, and being me I can never just stop at one book, I am also getting An Illustrated Life: Drawing Inspiration from the Private Sketchbooks of Artists, Illustrators and Designers by Danny Gregory and Image Transfer Workshop: Mixed-Media Techniques for Successful Transfers by Darlene McElroy.
This should be lots of inspiration for my artwork and my blog! We are going down to the beach on Friday and I’m excited I’ll have some fabulous reading.
Today I am joining the book launch party at Artsy Mama’s for Tara Frey’s new book Blogging for Bliss. I am anxiously awaiting my copy! I started blogging over a year ago and then had a huge lag where I just let it sit. The past few months I am back into it regularly and I enjoy it! I highly recommend blogging as a blissful creative outlet.
If you stop by to visit ~ please leave a comment and your blog link! I’d love to add you to my inspiration list, because visiting and discovering wonderful blogs is every bit as fun as creating one yourself. I am looking forward to the party today and visiting with everyone attending the party.
