My Blogging Life

This post also appears, with minor edits, at The Women’s Pages, a multi-author blog for women writers published by the Accokeek Women Writers Group

BloggingI’ve been writing Art Spirit Nature or about three years and I’ve learned a great deal by experimenting with different kinds of writing.  I’ve learned how to grow my followers and  express myself in new publishing format. I’m proud of this blog and I really enjoy it because it gives me a lot of latitude to express myself on topics dear to me. As you know, you’ll find art, science, profiles of creative people, and musings all about the wonder and beauty of the creative life.

But I’m ready now to go to a more professional level, and so I have two new blogs launched this year for business, and I am committed to maintaining these regularly,twice a week. That gives me quite a busy writing life on a regular basis, at least for news and essay writing!

My Marketing and Design blog is called Clearly Creative Communication and you can find it at:

www.clearwell.wordpress.com

blogging-insideThe purpose is to explore the new mediums of communication, new tools, and also the new ways of working, particularly for creative women. Design and visual communication are also featured.  It’s off to a great start, and I hope if the topic interests you that you’ll Subscribe or Follow.

The other blog is for my other job with Milestone Asset Partners, a commercial real estate investor group. That one is called CRE Milestones and covers news from the world of commercial real estate, particularly multifamily housing, including trends in financing and emerging markets.  A drier subject, but it’s the freshness here that counts; I scan the CRE eNews every day and pluck two topics to feature that week. It’s mostly reporting and linking to others’ stories, where I will summarize the story and occasionally offer my own analysis.

Blogging is an amazing format – it’s basically a magazine that you self-publish. I’ve found that to become a better blogger I need to read lots of blogs, so my next story about blogging will be finding and reading the ones you like. Reading lots of blogs has helped me find a niche in the blogosphere, and find my blogging voice. 

Tell me what you blog about, or, if you don’t (yet) have a blog, what would you write about if you did? It’s all a part of the creative conversation!
