Revise Posts in WordPress
“The world as we have created it is a process of our thinking. It cannot be changed without changing our thinking.” ― Albert Einstein
The more posts that you create for your artist blog; the more you will learn your unique writing voice.
Just like your artwork has grown, so will your blog posts.
We are always growing and that creates change. What you might think today might be something totally different next year.
One of the benefits of owning an artist blog is that the content that you write will always be searchable by the search engines.
What I mean is that a post that you have written a year or two ago will still be generating traffic to your site.
Your artist blog is a very powerful tool for your art business. Because every post you write will have a reflection of your brand, you will want to make sure that you revisit and edit your content.
The good news is that it is easy to revise posts in WordPress
Revisit old Content
I have a passion for watching artists and musicians grow throughout their career. I will follow a band through the years and watch them grow as players and writers.
The same goes for artists. You can visually see them grow as an artist. I do that with my artwork and music and recommend that my students keep a journal of their progress as well. There will be no better motivation than being able to see the progress that has been made.
Sometimes it is painful to look back, but keep in mind; you would not be where you are today if you didn’t take those steps in the past. We learn every day as long as we keep an open mind. What we learn creates a change.
I challenge you to keep a journal of your artwork. Do not through anything away.
A fun project I have my students do is to create a drawing or a painting with a particular subject.
Six months later I have them create the same piece.
The progress that they see in six months is both exciting and inspirational.
You will want to do the same with your blog.
Everything is going to improve over time. The layout of your posts. How you write your paragraphs and sentences. Where you insert images. How you communicate your thoughts with text. Everything will change and get better. Because you will be growing as a writer you will also want to revisit and update old content.
You can revise posts in WordPress as often as you wish. Take advantage of this. The better you can communicate your artistic story, the more art you will sell.
Revisiting old content on my site is a weekly ritual and I recommend it to you as well. After you have a solid amount of material on your blog, visit old pages and read them.
You might find something that you would like to change or some simple grammar or spelling mistakes you overlooked. There have been many times when I would ask myself, “What was I thinking?” WordPress makes it easy for you to edit and revise your content to keep it up to date.
