art blog hopAn art blog hop is a great way to find inspiration, and connect with artists around the world. I’ve seen other blog hops at other blogs and I thought it would be a good idea to try this at Artpromotivate.

This will be yet another way for artists to promote their work for free at Artpromotivate!

First of all, here is our blog hop badge. Please consider posting this at your blogs and websites, so other artists can find out about this.

Website and blog code for blog-hop badge:

This is how our artist BlogHop will work:

  1. Send us a small square badge and blog link. This badge will be posted here and link directly to the blog or website.

  2. The image should be 125px by 125px and cropped if necessary.

  3. Write a short sentence to place below the image. This should include your name, country, and painting style. If the image represents one of your artworks, you can include the artwork title. For example: Graham Matthews, Newfoundland, Canada – Abstract Realism Paintings

  4. To be included, you must share our blog hop banner (above) in a blog post or somewhere in your website. Please include the link where it is posted.

  5. All participants are encouraged to visit each art blog and leave a comment. A Facebook, Google+, Pinterest or Twitter share would be fine as well.

    When leaving a comment, there are some general rules of etiquette to follow.

    >> Don’t spam them! (I’m sure you know this but I thought I should mention it anyway)
    >> Please don’t leave a link and ask the blogger to follow you. There is often a place to insert a link if you feel the need. An intelligent well thought out comment works much better!

  6. Try to visit all blogs. You don’t have to do it all at once. Blog hopping takes time. When this list grows large, it may be difficult to do so in one sitting.

  7. Visit this page regularly to see newly added blogs and websites, and find inspiration and new connections.

  8. Make sure you have social sharing buttons on your blog or website so others can follow you easily.
