3 Ways To Write Better Art Blog Posts
#1 Collect Topics
Before you can start to write interesting posts you will need to know what you are going to be writing about. If you sit down at the computer with no path, you will be wasting time trying to decide what you should write about. Your posts will also lack structure.
You will want to come up with a list of topics that you would like to write about. After you have a number of topics that you would like to write about put them on a calendar. Your calendar will help you stay focused on what you will be writing about. You can also look ahead to think about what you would like to say. This makes the writing process easier.
Tips On How To Create A Topic List
Many artists struggle with their blog because they feel that they have nothing to say. The truth is that the readers want to get to know you as an artist. What you have to say is very interesting to them.
Ask These Questions:
- What is your passion for art?
- What inspired you to start creating art?
- Who inspires you?
- What style of art did you begin with?
- What path did you take to get to where you are now?
- What supplies do you use?
- Where do you get your supplies?
The answers to these questions will get you started. If you are writing a post once a week you will have close to two months of material.
#2 Writing Your Posts
Now that you have your list of ideas on your calendar it is time to write your thoughts down. There is a structure that you will want to follow for all of your posts.
The structure of your posts will make it easier for your readers to digest. Write as if you are talking to someone. When you are trying to explain your thought to a person, you stay on topic, you do not ramble about unnecessary topics.
Your posts should be the same way as you speak, structured so it is easy for a person to understand your key points.
Images – are important to help make your posts more intriguing and will produce more engagement on your posts.
Introduction – The introduction is a brief paragraph that will describe what the body of the post will be about. This will determine if the reader will want to continue to read your post or move on.
Body – The body is your thoughts about the topic that you are writing about. A simple tip to make it easier for your readers to read is to break up your thoughts into smaller paragraphs.
Closing – The closing of your post should be a quick summary of what you discussed and a call to action.
After you have finished writing your post, put it away for the day. Go back to it the next day and reread your work. With fresh eyes, you will be able to see mistakes that will need to be addressed before you publish your post to the world.
If it is possible, have someone else read the post before you publish. They might see some spelling or grammar issues that you have missed.
To be able to write better art blog posts is easier than you might think. With a little practice, you will find that you will become quicker and better at writing your thoughts.
