Blog Triage Begins

It's been a while since I posted, I got busy and I also ran out of steam. For a while I have been thinking about what I could do to get myself to post, and what I could write about. So to help me out a bit I decided to take the Blog Triage course with Alyson B. Stanfield and Cynthia Morris . With their knowledge and creative efforts and the support of other artists striving to improve their blogs, I can't fail.

Now on to my very first lesson , which is about who I want to read my blog. Who am I writing for ? I guess first and foremost I am writing for anyone who is interested in ikebana and flowers in general. I want people to share my journey, and maybe also to share theirs as well with me. But I also want artist of all kinds to come here also. Sogetsu Ikebana has a long history with arttist of all kinds: painters, ceramic artist, sculptors, glass artists, installation and environmetal artists and others as well.

I also want to make connections with other artists, not only ikebana but other types as well. It's a big world out there and there is so much to see and do. So feel free to leave a comment and share a little too!

This blog was started originally as a way for me to show my work, maybe get some feedback,and to chart my progression. I thought it would also be a really great way to encourage me to do more, and to some extent it has greatly helped.

It's not easy for me to write, as you may be able to tell from this post. That's going to be the one thing I really need to work on. I'm looking forward to see what I can do with this blog in the next month and beyond.

Hi Keith, I'm also an artist participating in the blog triage, and identify with your statement. I feel that I've already gained a lot, and looking forward to more. I would also like to add that your work is amazing, and your blog very informative.

Fascinating, Keith! I'm so glad you bring a whole new dimension to the class!

I think writing a blog is fun and I approach it by using some pictures to illustrate and remind me of what my story is going to be about. Hope you can learn some great tips for keeping your own the way you want it to be in your class. Good luck and I would be happy to help edit your texts. signed the guy on the other side of the room.

Hi Keith,
I love Ikebana. (BTW, I studied Japanese in Tokyo, but only for 6 months +). Thanks for visiting my blog and leaving a comment. I am way behind on the Blog Triage course and have done almost nothing on my blog so far! I hope to improve it soon...
