Do you think you'll still be blogging 10 years from now?

Do you think you'll still be blogging 10 years from now?

I like it so much now that I probably will be blogging 10 years in the future if blogging is still around. And if it’s free. If I’m still drawing and painting I will most likely be posting my work on my art blog just as I do now.

I hope to write some flash fiction or short stories to add to my writing blog. I just might switch to another site like Jimdo where I can put my stories in different tabs so they are easier to access.

It’s a disappointment to find an interesting blog to follow then find out that the person hasn’t posted in over a year. Maybe they think that no one is reading it. Even if they have 1 follower, that doesn’t mean other people aren’t visiting. I would follow it if I thought it was interesting. With that in mind, I will try to keep updating my art and writing blogs.

On the other hand…I do have a painting blog (www.artofkimberly.blogspot.com) that I haven’t posted to in over a year, but that’s because I haven’t painted in oil or acrylic in that long. It’s not that I don’t like to. I just don’t have the time at the moment.

I would love to do a series of paintings, in oil or acrylic, of chubby women in old fashioned bathing suits. Like the one below. This was an ACEO art card I created that was sold. It is one of my all-time favorite pieces. It has a certain charm that I would like to capture again. I would like to do this style on a much bigger canvas.

Sharing Sensitive Stories on Your Blog

Adventures in Life, Love, and Librarianship has a gorgeous post about why she blogs, and the message that she has received from loved ones telling her not to "over share." These are namely her thoughts about depression or anxiety. I love that she encourages any reader who is receiving a message to not post because "what will people think!" to tune out those voices and write anyway.   Read more >

8 Ways to Get More Pinterest Followers

If you haven’t checked out Pinterest yet, you are missing out! Just like old-school scrapbooks, Pinterest is a place to organize online images you find interesting or inspiring by creating customized, themed boards. It is a lot of fun, but once you’ve gotten down the basics, you'll need to start focusing on your interactions on this social media site.  Here is how to find more followers!   Read more >

Are Bloggers Only Writing for Other Bloggers?

If I post every day, do things on my blog change? If I post every day, do my numbers grow? By numbers we are talking engagement, followers, comments, and that ultimate Blogger-Heaven of Good Pagehits. Bloggers (including me) are trying to answer these questions for themselves during a time when we can find a lot of support from a community where others are also striving towards the same goals. We all hold hands and jump off the blogger-edge together. Thelma & Louise style. Sorta. Yet we are 10 days in to NaBloPoMo (give or take), and I find myself asking a BIGGER question: As bloggers, are we only talking to ourselves?   Read more >
