This is a blog post of 100 Blog Topics for artists. It is for artists who are trying to come up with ideas for what to write about.
I’ve noticed I’m not blogging as much as I have been in the past and it’s partly because I’ve been having a hard time thinking up topics to blog about. So I thought maybe there are other artists having the same problem and could use some help with Blog Topic ideas.
There is so much more one can write about than ones latest art piece. Remember people are reading your blog because there is something about you and your art that inspires them. People want to know who you are and why you do what you do and what you’re about. Sharing photos with your writing is nice because most people are very visual and enjoy looking at images. It also breaks up your writing so it’s not so hard on the eyes when reading.
You should also have a strategy for blogging. This Copyblogger post will help you figure out your goals: 10 Content Marketing Goals Worth Pursuing.
