How to get Ideas for Blog Topics

'Where the Marsh Begins'             6x8          pastel       ©Karen Margulis

I am usually not at a loss for blog ideas.  I am often asked how I manage to post something every day.  It usually is pretty easy because my daily painting is what drives or inspires my post. And if I do get stuck for an idea usually it will come to me as I am puttering around the studio.  But every once on awhile I am stumped. Today I had the painting to post but no topic. But then I came across this great post by one of my favorite artists Casey Klahn on 101 Blog Topics.

Just what I needed! This great list of topics will inspire many more of my posts I am sure. And if you have been wanting to start an art blog....or revive yours....this list is just the thing for you.  I also have found that one topic inspires yet another topic and so on. And when readers comment or ask questions....even more topics are born.

So this list of 101 Blog Topics can inspire an infinite number of topics!  I shall never be at a loss again. So go ahead....visit Casey's wonderful blog The Colorist and pick a topic and start blogging. Feel free to link to your art blog in the comments!

I enjoy your blog, too, Karen and link to it. Glad the 101 ideas serve, and I enjoy trying to write posts that can go viral (or viral in the world of art blogs). Call it a nerd thing.

Your blog is very inspiring. I always feel like blogging after I read your blog of the day.
I usually dont have the time - another job :). But I still feel inspired. Thanks!
