From the Poetry and Art Blogs, to the "Arts" Blog

Along with blogging, painting and working on my new book, A Thousand Days, recent events have included some insanity related distraction as I have been rebuilding my blogging "empire", but I'm not letting it get me down anymore.
It seems like when I begin writing, every bit of drama that can possibly invade my life finds a way to do just that. It makes me want to rent an office outside of my seven room house, but I am always working on a solution. Ever on I press to be present on the lighted screen, to share my heart, my thoughts, my dreams, my vision.

Recent changes have included consolidating my Digital Artisan blog into Poetic Expression. I made this decision based on the facts that I had been spreading myself far too thin with 4 blogs and also that when I offshooted my artwork to the Digital Artisan blog back in '09(listening to someone that told me that I had different topics and therefore should have different blogs). I was never happy with often having to duplicate posts and the trouble it was causing with the search engines. Often times my poetry and artwork just belong together and I found myself feeling that they shouldn't be separated, but together enhancing each other.

Digital Artisan is now redirecting all posts, but will not be doing so after February 14th, as I'd like to regain my PR and I have future plans for DA. Page rank 2&3 has wiped from all of my blogs to 0 this week, but I have been doing some major housekeeping and rebuilding to all of these pages and I expect it will take Google awhile to sort it all out.

I have also been rebuilding Spectrum and have been posting new articles there. I'm looking forward to new submissions and would love to include some full articles, especially in eco/green, offbeat, history, travel and blogging. Watch for calls for full article submissions coming soon!

Michelle, do whatever is best for you! I can understand about "spreading too thin". Just give me a shout, and I will be there! In the mean time, take care of yourself.

It is very beautiful. As you have told in starting of the above post you do painting, writing and others, I think you are a multi talented personality.

Don't worry. Just stay focused and you will slowly get everything accomplished that you want to. Whenever you are faced with a large, time consuming task, you just have to go at it and do not stop. It's all of those breaks in-between work that make the work take longer than it does.

It's not always easy, well, OK, it's never really easy, but it will allow you to get much more accomplished than if you just did a little bit every now and then.

I guess you should consolidate all your contents on one blog and let it rise. I find it hard to manage multiple blogs because of shortage of time. I wish there is some kind of a software that will do so.

And by the way, I hope you have fun concentrating on poetry, it is really a great hobby. I am not a writer myself. I wish I was so I could persuade my sweetheart with my lines of love. Heh.

I've only recently started Blogging myself, it is truly amazing how much time it takes up. I can see exactly what you mean by spreading yourself too thin.

It 's Tough.

Beautifully written

John Briner said...

Hi there! Just stumbled upon your blog and I think you made the right decision to consolidate both your poetry and artwork in a single blog. It might be difficult at first to accomplish such task but I think you'll manage to pull through with flying colors.

Hi Michele
It's a difficult decision. Do you focus on just one task and complete that at the expense of all other activities. But what if, in one year's time, you look back and realised that you didn't need to do the task. Alternatively, do you purposefully spend 5 hours on Task A, 5 hours on Task B, 5 hours on Task C, etc?

Minnesota Granite Countertop said...

I agree, you do write your articles with passion. I hope you get the time to post for me some time in the future.

Hey Michele,
I hear what you are saying, running to many blogs and keeping them all updated can get a little taxing. I also wanted to say that I think that painting is really gorgeous, I love the light!

Michele Cameron Drew said...

Beautiful work on your site abstract... I especially love your trees. I hope you have a chance to visit poetic expression(linked it to my name) and thanks for the kind comments. =D

I also like poems. In fact, I used to write poems when I was in college. Artworks and poems are inseparable because most poets I know, made their artworks as inspiration to write poems. Know where your passion excels and develop it with dedication.

Michele Cameron Drew said...

I think that is amusing, because usually it is the other way around for me. I create the artwork because I am inspired by the poetry or whatever inspired me to write the poetry.

Hi Michele,
I heard what you were saying, trying to do too many blogs at once and keeping them all up to date can get a little taxing and is sometimes just impossible. Keep up the work though, it will pay off in the end.

Art is not for everybody. Many people can see a masterpiece but very little cand understand it.
