We were thrilled to see so many of you already had blogs up and running… and had great blogs at that! Before we get to our favorite blogs from ArtFire members we wanted to touch on a few things to help you make blogging part of your weekly routine.



What’s the deal with sending my posts to Twitter and Facebook?

We’ve discussed this before in previous forum comments and posts but we figured we’d touch on it again since it’s really important. A lot of social networks have automatic posting features, which means they will automatically post a link to your blog post on Twitter and Facebook. However, sometimes this can look like spam, or as one member pointed out, the link can create a Facebook Note rather than directing them to the blog post itself.


One thing we recommend doing is signing up for Postling. If you create a blog post in Postling (once you hit publish or schedule your post) we’ll ask if you want to create a status update for Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn. You can easily drop in a link to your blog post and send your message off. This is part of the free version of Postling and it will make your lives so much easier. We highly recommend it!


I’m still struggling to find things to write about.

We know it can be hard… we all struggle with content creation! Here are a few non-craft blogs that we think do a great job with content creation. These blogs talk about their environment/neighborhood, have personality, are informative, and are interesting to read. Give these a look over, we really think it’ll help you begin to see how you can write about other things besides your shop!


Do you have other helpful advice for starting my blog?

We’re going to defer to the experts on this one. We’ve compiled a list of some of the best resources out there to help you along your way as your start your blog and begin writing content:



And now we just wanted to call out your attention to some of our favorite blogs belonging to ArtFire members we came across this week. Everyone’s blog was great but we thought these did an especially great job of talking about things other than their business, were interesting, and kept us wanting to read more!



There’s a ton of great information in this post… we hope the articles, blogs, and your fellow ArtFire members inspire you!



Alexis
