Don’t forget, to help promote the tour this year, we’d like to post blogs from artists on the tour on our website, PortlandOpenStudios.com. This will bring traffic to the site, spark discussion on our social media outlets, and help you promote your open studio. The blogs can be about many things, like your artistic process, your history as an artist, or a how-to detailing a specific technique. It is OK to resurrect previous articles you might have posted on your own blog and I will modify if necessary for PDXOS blog. Our blog posts will appear under the “News” tab on the website.
We’d like each blog to be about 300 words and include at least one high-resolution image. We will help as much as we can with editing or suggestions for adding to the blog, if you have the seeds of an idea but are unsure how to complete it. If you write a blog, it counts for one hour of volunteer time. The more chatter online about the tour, the better the turnout for all the artists involved. If you are interested in writing for the site or have any questions, email Pat Kane at firstname.lastname@example.org.
