Ramblings of an artist… and a blogger noob…

Flower Heatherfish

Well…. I finally did it. I made a blog page on my site…

Firstly, I decided that it is about time that I become active on my site.  If I can keep up with all the social media, I should be able to make the occasional blog post right?  HA!…  Ever the optimist, I feel there is a great chance that I will be able to eventually invest in a clone…  Problem solved.

Secondly, I decided to start a blog due to a culmination of inspiration I have gained from reading the blogs of other artists that I follow.  I very much enjoy reading everyone’s stories, sharing new ideas, and gaining new incite in regard to lifestyles, skills, and subcultures that I would have otherwise known nothing about.

Because I have a tendency to ramble, I will conclude this as my first post and promise a follow up later this weekend.  A wonderful Instagramer ordered a bone hook necklace from me for her husband during my stint with @upmodinc on Instagram for #ThursdayTakeover.  I will be making a post documenting the carving process for all those that are curious what tools and bits I use.  This will also answer the question to that pesky finish problem – “How on earth do you get your bone pendants so shiny?”.

  1. Thanks for your personal marvelous posting! I truly enjoyed reading it, you are a great author.
    I will remember to bookmark your blog and may come back at some point.
    I want to encourage continue your great posts, have a nice weekend!

  2. Heya! I understand this is kind of off-topic however I had
    to ask. Does building a well-established website such as yours require a lot
    of work? I’m completely new to running a blog however I do write in my journal daily.
    I’d like to start a blog so I will be able to share my experience and
    thoughts online. Please let me know if you have any kind of suggestions or tips for new aspiring blog
    owners. Appreciate it!

    1. Hi there 🙂 No worries. It really just depends on how you define work. I highly recommend wordpress. There are thousands of downloadable templates you can use that make it easy to plug in your own content. The hard work for me is making sure I dedicate enough time to create content. Plugging in all the graphics is easy, but of course that also takes quite a bit of time. Of course, if your write a journal entry daily, this shouldn’t be an issue for you. Yep… I think you will like wordpress. I know how to code, but I don’t like doing it, and this helps me avoid it. It has an easy back end that is quite user friendly. Hope this helps!
