One of the things I enjoy about participating in different art challenges...is I'm challenged! I probably wouldn't have decided to draw a peacock if it weren't for Artist's Play Room. That's the theme for this week, and I have to admit, I enjoyed drawing and painting my little version.
This is the great thing about challenges....they move you out of your normal comfort zone, but it's still your voice that's speaking. If you're not involved in an art challenge, I encourage you to give it a try. You never know what you may discover about yourself!
One of the things I've noticed over the last little bit is that I'm spending a little more time blogging than I am creating. Now I know that's a bit of a catch-22, since I blog about the things I create. But, I've noticed I'm feeling a little time-crunched in regards to my blogging frequency. (Make no mistake, I love my blog and the blog community!)
Especially since I'm working on a few new things and heading in a few new directions. As an introvert, I need extra time to process changes and new ideas without any pressure to reveal before I'm ready (even if it's self-induced pressure:). Some things I want to simplify, and some things are just new roads I want to travel and see where they go.
I enjoy keeping a regular schedule (up to now it's been Mon, Wed, Fri & Sat) and I think readers prefer knowing you'll be blogging on a regular basis. So, I'm going to change my schedule to Tuesdays, Thursdays & Saturdays for the next little while and see how that goes.
I'd much rather post a little less and have good content, than just blog to get a blog done. I'll most likely post a picture or sketch on Saturdays, something pretty without a lot of words. So let's try it, shall we?!
Do you have a regular blog schedule? Do you enjoy bloggers who stick to a schedule?
