A Better Blog (?) - May 23, 2014
If you're wondering, I did finish listening to the webinar about making better blog posts. I waited till I had finished painting for the day and ate a late dinner, about 10 p.m. But I found that it made no difference what time I watched the video. The very act of watching two people talk to each other, one face at a time, is too wearing on my nerves. But I found a solution. I turned my back to the screen and pretended it was a radio broadcast. Sweet bliss, it were as though I was eavesdropping on a interesting conversation. So if you run into this problem as well, give my solution a try. What did I learn? In a nutshell: name your post, make them a little longer (apparently there is a magic number for words...which I never meet), show your personality, write about your work, write about yourself, add photos, don't worry too much about mistakes. Since I use my "blog" as more of a journal, I'm not sure if much of this will work for me. I must get back to work as I intend to finish this piece today - no fail. For your enjoyment I have posted a photo of my late grandmother's peach iris which has bloomed in my garden. Back to my brushes.
