Information About an Artist”s Life

For your information about an artist's life: I also have to write blogs !
My creativity is an artist is expressed through wood and paint.
And I like beautiful and good quality objects.

The wooden objects made by me with great care are all unique.
They are the result of a hunch (= inspiration) which I then want to materialize into a tangible thing.

Therefore I need a base.

This means making working drawings, sawing wood to size, assembling and sanding. In this process I have already taken into account whether the form that is created matches the pattern that I want to apply.

All these are the best parts of being an artist !

Must do things.

Although I am a creative person, writing is not really my thing.

But I also want to bring my work to the attention of art-loving buyers.

Being a small self-employed person, which I am as an artist after all, my job does not only involve being busy with the fun things.
I have to be a marketing manager as well.


But how?
For example, by requesting attention in newspapers and magazines, participating in art fairs and exhibiting in galleries.

But besides physically presenting work at exhibitions or in galleries, we also have the internet for information of an artist's life.!!!

As an older person who didn't grow up with the internet, my attitude towards the online world is somewhat ambivalent.

On the one hand, I can see the enormous possibilities that are available online, on the other hand, I now know from experience how difficult and labor-intensive it is to make use of these possibilities well.


For years I had a nice website that looked pretty good.
Nice photos and descriptions of the posted items. But unfortunately, few visitors.

Over the years I collected information about the art of what a good website is. And to tackle the problem properly I decided at the beginning of 2020 to get started with a professional in the website science.
And I got to work together with Poulomi.

A Good Website

Her analysis of my old website revealed that behind the facade much was wrong (actually everything).
And because of that the "god" Google was not happy about me.

For Google, I was not a member of his club and therefore did not consider it necessary to direct internet users to my website.
Poulomi has kindly taken me by the hand and introduced me to the regime of search engines. A good website looks inviting and is customer-friendly.
And pleases Google.

To be found and seen on the internet

For this, the structure of the website must be well put together. And the use of the right keywords, the good size of the photos, the internal and external links, and the amount of text, etc. So we had a lot of things to work on.

But hooray!, Google now regularly visits my website AND alerts searchers, on the internet to the existence of my website.

But all this has made having a website, a good website, a lot more labor-intensive.


But that wasn't all, it wasn't enough.
Poulomi has repeatedly pointed out to me the importance of more text content for Google on the website.

So after long hesitation and delay on my part and deliberation about what to write, I decided to wright and give you some information about an artist's life. And finally published this first post. As a small bit of information about my artist's life.

And I hope Google is now happy with me !

More posts are coming soon, on small bits of information about an artist's life!

Have a nice day, Anita
