Two pages with two pens poised! And I only write left-handed. Oops, I forgot it is all via a keyboard. Two different sites really. Some of you may have noticed one less blogger tapping at your inbox.
I feel it’s time to report in. In March this year I undertook an Art Business course to improve my business savvy and make my art a seller! My website at philipparobert.com has had a massive makeover and now includes a blog.
A happy me after an afternoon of painting yesterday at Kay Brothers Winery, McLaren Vale, South Australia. Sunshine was patchy but that’s late autumn. A spot of great beauty, about half an hour’s drive from home. The wines are good too!
Many marketing advisers recommend that the blog and website should sit together. And I am giving it a fair go. I have developed a new logo, launched a sale and a book and even advertised on Facebook! Blogging 5 or 6 times a month over there. Phew.
Unfortunately there are down-sides. I miss you, my friends. I have had a lot less time to read and make connections with you. I miss those exchanges and your stories. I feel as if I am blogging in a vacuum and these days my subject matter seems to be totally about me. But I am sure there are many reasons to blog.
Please come over to say g’day at my new site. It is more about my work and less about art in general. But that doesn’t make it a dark place. You could say it is my own marketing hotspot!
Have you ever felt drawn to sell your art through your blog?
Feel free to leave a comment or two, of course, as ever.
