I've tinkered around with blogs in the past - some have been relatively successful and others have fallen at the first hurdle. So, with a new year almost upon us, I thought it was about time I gave it another go, but this time I'd come up with some sort of plan.
First, I wanted to have a think about what I wanted to achieve with a blog. Obviously, driving traffic to my site is important - the more people who see my illustrations, the better. But I'd also like my posts to be...
Interesting. And if I can't think of anything interesting to write, I'll try and point the reader in the direction of something that is.
Entertaining. My art style is colourful and fun - hopefully I can do the same with my writing style (Again, if I can't think of anything entertaining, I'll find someone who can ;))
Informative. I love it when fellow illustrators share tips, or give some sort of insight into their own techniques and apporach.
Hopefully, I'll get around to posting regularly as well...but only time will tell on this one ;)
