How did my blog start? 

When I was 16 or 17 I had a big interest in art (I still do – went to school for Art History and am now an Art Librarian), as well as wanting to meet other artists. I started The Art Spectrum as a way to meet other artists and learn more about their work, process, and lives through blog featured interviews. I started on Blogger, moved to WordPress a few years later, and finally to self hosted a couple of weeks ago!

Advice to New Bloggers

Look for all the advice! My go to place for advice currently has been Facebook Groups – in particular Start a Money Making Blog.  I’ve also found some great community groups that have to do with art and blogging on Google+.  Also, read as much as you can, never stop reading.
