This week I was surprised with a Blogger Recognition Award from Charlyse of the Real Life Real Mom blog. Thank you Charlyse! Considering I just secured a domain for my blog, this definitely came as a pleasant surprise. Now I’d like to pay it forward by recognizing and nominating 15 art blogs for the Blogger Recognition Award – all of these blogs are beautiful and amazing:
If you’ve been nominated, here is what you do next.
*Thank the blogger who nominated you and provide a link to their blog.
*Write a post to show your award.
*Give a brief story of how your blog started.
*Give two pieces of advice to new bloggers.
*Select 15 other bloggers you want to give this award to.
*Comment on each blog and let them know you have nominated and provide the link to the post you created.
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.
