The Blogging Life


BloggingI want to share what I have been doing with Blogging, to get your feedback and support, and also hopefully to inspire you if you’ve been curious about the world of blogging.

For about three years I’ve been writing my personal blog called Art-Spirit-Nature, which is found at:

www.patrisarts.com

I’ve learned a great deal by experimenting with different kinds of writing, and learned how to grow my followers, express myself in new publishing format. I’m proud of this blog and I enjoy it because it gives me a lot of latitude to express myself on topics dear to me. You’ll find art, science, profiles of creative people, links to creative things happening around the world, meditations, all about the wonder and beauty of the creative life.

But I’m ready now to go to a more professional level, and so I have two new blogs launched this year for business, and I am committed to maintaining these regularly,twice a week, and that gives me quite a busy writing life on a regular basis, at least for news and essay writing.

My Marketing and Design blog is called Clearly Creative Communication and you can find it at:

www.clearwell.wordpress.com

blogging-insideThe purpose is to explore the new mediums of communication, new tools, and also the new ways of working, particularly for creative women. Design and visual communication are also featured.  It’s off to a great start, and I hope if the topic interests you that you’ll Subscribe or Follow.

The other blog is for my other job with Milestone Asset Partners, a commercial real estate investor group. That one is called CRE Milestones and covers news from the world of commercial real estate, particularly multifamily housing, including trends in financing and emerging markets.  A drier subject, but it’s the freshness here that counts; I scan the CRE eNews every day and pluck two topics to feature. It’s reporting and linking to others’ stories, where I will summarize the story and occasionally offer my own analysis.

Blogging is an amazing format – it’s basically a magazine that you self-publish. This blog, The Women’s Pages, is a multi-author blog. Every one who is a member of AWWG is automatically elligable to publish here, and other women writers can request guest-author access. Just send me an email and I’ll help you get started.

Like any other form of writing, to become a better blogger you need to read lots of blogs! So my next article on the topic will be how to find blogs you like and follow them. Reading lots of blogs will help you find a niche in the universe of the blogosphere, and help you bring your ‘voice’ into focus. So stay tuned for my next big post, Finding & Reading Blogs, coming in March.
