As for my blog, I've already (in the first box and the right side-bar) stated this:"On this blog, I discuss how my gardening experience inspires and informs the images I create for my unusual line of invitations, event program covers, and all occasion greeting cards; as well as my impressionistic photo-art. (For details see patriciayoungquist.com). Sometimes I reflect on current events, or discuss what people I admire are doing. My 1st blog entry was 12.31.09, where I laid out my plan for this blog. Now, January 29th 2011, after 108 posts, I've changed the layout, and I warn you that I like long sentences, because when they stay on point (as I hope I do), they take you on a journey. I like to plant ideas, as well as seeds, with good care, and nurture them as they grow."
"Is your blog for gardeners then?," the consultant wondered. "Well, no," I answered trying to explain that a "gardener's blog" implies a "how to" content and while I occasionally might offer a how to posting, my goal in my making art or writing has never been to pigeon hole my audience by offering too much detail. In the first month of this blog post (January 16th 2010), where I discussed my position on describing my Black and White Photography, I stated that "I must confess that I do not like to talk about how I've created a print or why the composition has been rendered in a certain way in a given print. I feel too much information spoils the magic of not knowing. I think having knowledge of many specific details of a given work of art can interfere with the relationship a viewer has with the art work."
For now, I will say this about my blog: It is about Something. As for the audience that I target, I'll stick with J Peterman and file it under "pending . . . "
