I started writing this blog July 2006 (370 posts) to show postcards I was mailing off to FiberArt for a Cause. Throughout, I've talked about my creative process and shown my art. I've also shown travel photos and photos from my day/life.
One of my goals for this year is to show my art more. This blog is an obvious place to do that.
I also am re-thinking my art ... looking back to where I've been. Looking ahead ... where do I want to go artistically/creatively? This blog helps me do this ... it's all recorded (easier than sifting through years of written journals!)
I need to "store" my art online. I have a Flickr account for that ... but it is easier to write about art here on the blog. Plus, not everything I post here (like recent photos about Journaling by 5s) are uploaded to Flickr. So the blog serves the purpose of "documenting my creative process".
I do not see this blog as my "real journal". I keep a morning pages journal practice and don't feel the need to process life things here.
Rarely do I get a comment, even though the statistics show viewers. So that begs the question, am I blogging for me or for others? Or both?
I've thought, throughout the process of keeping this blog, that perhaps my "musings" could resonate with others and perhaps inspire others. It's part of my educational perspective to share thoughts of my creative practice and process. Some blogs get lots of comments, all the time; while others don't. But the writer keeps on blogging.
Okay ... so it looks like the blog does continue to serve me. Perhaps I'll re-commit to it.
