Advice for bloggers / artists

After creating the Student Art Guide, which has become one of the largest blogs in New Zealand (and one of the largest worldwide that is dedicated to high school Art education) I began to receive many requests from others seeking advice about building websites and driving traffic to these. In brief, my advice can be summarised as follows:

  • I have written an article that outlines the advantages and disadvantages of various website builders and explains the risks of relying solely on social media platforms. This article includes a video tutorial, showing how easy it is to set up your own website. If you are hoping to have any kind of creative career, this article is important reading. If you are a Graphic Design or Design Technology student, I recommend that you find a way to base your Coursework project around creating your own website!
