gifts Blog Topics for Artists – the gift that keeps on giving.

Unless you live under the proverbial rock, you have repeatedly heard why as an artist you should be blogging. For instance, you may have listened to or downloaded the podcast on blogging for artists I recently did with Jason Horejs.

The primary reasons for blogging by artists is it helps to find new customers and retain existing customers. Blogging gives your customers a chance to know you on a different level than you can achieve through a static website.

It allows your other interests and personality to come through, which makes buying from you more likely. Besides, no other tool is as easy and affordable to use. It’s a great way to build your email list, too.
