Where this blog is going?

on August 1, 2012

So I’ve been doing this for a few months now and want to write some kind of summary…How I feel this blog is going and if I want to continue it or not.

Short answers are “ok” and “yes” 😀

The blog does broadly what I wanted it to do – it motivates me and provides a record of my art efforts. So far it looks like a drawing per month is perfectly sustainable. However, I feel that it is not really enough to improve my skills, just enough for me to remember where my art supplies are 😀

I’m not sure now is a good time to commit to more that what I’m doing – I think it’ll probably just kill the blog altogether. So I will finish my “a year of one painting per month” project and reevaluate after 🙂

What are the problems? I don’t mean general time and energy problems, they are not going anywhere any time soon 🙂 I mean what can be improved in my blog?

Firstly, it can be prettier – I can tag better, learn to put proper links in.

Secondly, the quality of photos I take of my drawings can be better. The light is not great and I don’t really know what I’m doing :))

These are the main ones. I choose to do nothing about them at this time because:

a) I don’t really have much readership 

b) I absolutely loathe inserting pictures. I need to just do it a few million times then it’ll hopefully become second nature and I can improve actual picture taking :))

So I will go with “better is the enemy of good” and just try to keep going and see where this will take me…

And I sincerely hope that I will with time figure out how wordpress works 🙂
