Have you been thinking about starting an artist blog? Have you been putting it off because you do not know where to start? In this article, I will share with you how to get started creating a blog that will generate traffic by developing your artist blog vision statement.
Artist Blog Vision Statement
Blogs are an important tool for digital marketing.
Before you can start to build a successful blog you need to have a clear vision of your goals.
What happens when you go to the grocery store hungry and without a shopping list?
Most of us come home with bags of food we don’t need.
The same thing will happen to your blog. If you do not know what you are working for, your blog will become a mess.
Start your blog with a clear vision of what you want.
Blogging is a free way to get your name out there and drive traffic to your art listings.

What is a vision statement?
A vision statement describes what you want your artist blog to be. To put it simply, a vision statement is the goals you set for your blog.
Your artist blog vision statement will provide you the information you need to make long-term and short-term goals.
It should be a couple of sentences that explain your goals for your artist blog.
Take your time creating your vision statement and don’t be afraid to revise it. A well-written statement will provide you inspiration which will help you to grow your art business.
Why is it important to have a vision statement?
A vision statement provides inspiration and motivation.
How can you turn a vision into a reality?
The first step is to write your vision down and place it somewhere you will see every day.
Your vision will become real once you write it down. Instead of it being a thought in your mind, it is now documented.
By having clear objectives, you will be able to make smart decisions and strategies that will have you reach your primary goals.
How to write a vision statement
Keep in mind a vision statement is something that you vision your blog or business to be.
Some people confuse a mission statement with a vision statement. A mission statement is what your blog or business has to offer. A vision statement is what you envision your blog or business to be.
To write your vision statement, sit down with a piece of paper and a pencil. Imagine how you want your blog to be long-term.
What will your blog have to offer?
How will your art blog it be different than other blogs?
Start writing down your thoughts and think big. This is your vision. If you can envision something, you can achieve it. Visualize where you would like to be and write it down even if it seems unrealistic at first.
The next step is to identify what the core of your blog is.
- Is it to sell your artwork?
- Is it to teach your art techniques?
- Is it to tell your journey as an artist?
Write down your thoughts.
Once you have a clear vision of your core values, you will need to think about, how you will get to your destination.
Are the things that you are doing now bringing you closer to your core values?
What do you have to do for the next six months, one year, five years and ten years to keep you focused on your core values?
Envision what your blog will look like in 15 years.
Write down your thoughts
When you have all of your thoughts are written down, start coming up with one or two sentences that describe everything that you have. The statement should be clear, to the point and give you direction.
A vision statement should be short and to the point that explains core values.
It should focus on the passion and emotion that you have to your blog.
It should show the success of your blog in the future.
Take your time and don’t be afraid of revising your artist blog vision statement. This is what you will be living. This is what you will be planning for. This is what you will be working for. It is a vision of your success.
