For starters, I wanted to search the nooks and crannies of the web to find some blogs that focus on creativity as a whole. Of course, there are no shortage of these sites, and there are of course sites that list the “top ten, or top 100” so I won’t try to recreate their work here, but here is a little taste of the creative niche blogs out there, so to speak.
In my search of “creative blogs” I started out using DuckDuckgo.com. These are the first three listed, so in order of ranking, they should be the most popular. First on the list is Today’s Creative Blog at http://todayscreativeblog.net/ I loved this blog. First of all there was a little birdie! That peaked my interest right off the bat (pun kinda intended). The blog is colorful, with large delicious pictures and instructions that are easily readable. Some of the categories are; home, crafts, recipes, and family travel. It looks to be a very friendly place with a down-home flavor.
This blog is listed on ‘Creative Blogs” as number one, so I checked it out. It is called Barij Art and Design. Visit it at: https://barijdesigns.com/This is another blog that I absolutely adored! I would definitely agree that it should be a hit. Colorful, delicate, and whimsical. Artist and blog author, Bari J. is obviously a very talented, inspiring artist, featuring a lot of flowers, and intricate patterns.
Lines and Colors by blog author, Charles Parker, at http://linesandcolors.com/ is one of my favorite art blogs. (I link to it as I go there from time to time to check out what’s new). I can’t say enough about this site. The pictures are large, clear, and just beautiful. It is a well established blog at least since 2005, with a lot of articles and links to museum sites and art galleries. It is ranked 9th out of 75 art blogs by Blogrank, at http://www.blogmetrics.org/Art a top blogger site.
EBSQ at http://www.ebsqart.com/ is a website says it is a “community of artists” where they can promote and sell their art. This is a super, super cool site! This is a membership-type site. It was ranked 8Th on Blogrank. It is colorful, and seems to be easy to navigate. The site states they have been around since 2000.
Fine Art America.com “Indie Art” at http://fineartamerica.com/art/all/indie/all
Is not really a blog, but their indie art was interesting. They sell basically all types of art, from abstract to impressionist. The examples of Indie art were quite nice, seemed very retro with a lot of Victorian females set in colorful backgrounds. A basic website for a large organization.
That's it for this week! Ill be doing some more art & craft blog reviews soon. Namaste-Rev. Marie
