Tonight I went to Crit Club. That’s short for Critique Club. It’s an art club where each artist brings in a sample of their work and a guest artist will provide critique. I went as a guest speaker, not critiquer. I had the opportunity to speak to the artists about websites. Since I have created websites for several individuals and businesses, I was considered an authority. Strange what goes for “expert” these days, huh?
I gave the usual spiel about types of websites, especially talking up WordPress as a good option for artists since they can make updates themselves. I also mentioned how it’s great for users who blog. This comment brought up more questions than anything else I talked about. They asked what it was, how it was done, why you would want to, how would it benefit their site, how would it create more traffic to their site…on and on. I really struck a nerve. They were really excited about the possibilities blogging could bring to them and their potential website. So, prepare yourself, world. A new batch of bloggers are on the horizon.
