Imagine a blank canvas.
This canvas can hold pictures, videos, dreams, imaginings, visions, philosophy, general thoughts or anything else the creator wants their canvas to be.
When an artist figures out their voice, they find their optimal way of communicating.
When one finds their optimal form of communication, one can communicate very effectively.
Finding one’s own voice is the greatest tool an artist can have.
Blogging can help one find their voice.
Because blogging is a blank canvas.
When one gets past the initial fear of social judgement, which often comes with the onset of a creative process, then one really starts to create. When blogging regularly, one quickly comes to learn what they have to say and want to speak about.
With repetition of creation, one gains momentum.
With momentum comes opportunity.
Blogging is a great way to define yourself as an expert in a topic and is a great way to create a community. The internet is the world-wide web. Today, one has opportunity to create a world-wide following, comprised of the audience of their choosing.
So, do you have a blog? If not, consider starting one today.
