Who Am I Writing For?

On my quest to write an entertaining and informative blog, I signed up for Blog Triage class with the blog docs, Alyson Stanfield and Cynthia Morris. Today's assignment is to describe the people that I hope will visit and read my blog. 
As an artist and art teacher, I'm passionate about two things - making art and encouraging others. My ideal reader would be one who is interested in the process of creativity and wants to nurture it in their own life.

Tree of Blogging Inspiration
I write to communicate with artists, art lovers and artists-wannabes, with accomplished artists who are making work that I love and with those folks who have the creative urge and aren't quite sure what to do with it.

I want to speak to people who create in any way- through music, dance, writing, cooking and through drawing and painting as well - since the creative urges and processes are the same even though the end products may be different.

I write to create a dialog with others so my ideal reader is one who will respond to my writing, comment on it with insights of their own and share the information with others who might be interested. If you have commented on my blog or shared it with others, I sincerely thank you and want you to know that your comments do not go unnoticed or unappreciated. Hopefully, with this class, I'll learn ways to notice and appreciate my readers even more!

If you're new to my blog, welcome! My hope is that you find something fun and encouraging here and that you stay tuned to this channel.

I've taken several classes with ArtBizCoach Alyson Stanfield and recommend her highly. She is a wonderful resource for artists who want to learn the "business" end of the art business.

Check out her website. Here's a link to her blog: and here's a link to Cynthia's blog:

Okay, readers, let's see what effect the Blog Triage class has on my ability to communicate with you in a meaningful way. Let us know what you think!
