Do You Blog?

As with so many things techie these days, there are early adopters and others who are lagging trends and developments. Blogging has been around for a while. Its importance is increasing for business purposes. For artists, Blogging is a remarkable tool that can be used very effectively in marketing art helping an artist to brand their name.

If you don’t know what a blog is, then I suggest searching the word in Google. You’ll find a wealth of information there. For those of you who want to get started with an artist blog, you could do far worse than Margret Short. She is an artist and the topic in one of a series of blog posts by Alyson Stanfield on her Art Biz Blog. You should also check Alyson’s site. It’s loaded with great information.

Another blogger to read is John Chester. He is the CEO and Janitor (At least that is what it says on his tradeshow badge) of Wild Apple Graphics. John and wife, Laurie founded the business and continue to operate it as one of the the leading and most innovative fine art poster publishing companies. You can find John’s blog by digging around on or just go straight to Johnny Blogger here.

John gives a straight forward, humorous erudite view of what is happening in the fine art poster publsihing world. Believe me, it’s more different and difficult now than anytime since he launched the company in the late 1980s.

  1. Barney,
    At the risk of exposing myself as a total neophyte….which I am. Are you using TypePad?

    If so, what level would you recommend for a professional artist. I would rather use a service that I know I’m going to grow with than spend a lot of time trying out a bunch of different services and then having to switch somewhere down the road.


  2. Yes, I am using Typepad and am quite satisfied with it. You can use WordPress, which I believe is free, but you need hosting. Typepad includes hosting. If you want to customize your Typepad, you have to use one of the upgraded packages which are $89 and $149 annually. I think most artists would want to customize and personalize the look of their blog.
