Better blogging

My friend, Elizabeth, is a big blogger, who is always trying to nudge me to get at least one entry a week in my blog.
We had lunch together last week and while we were enjoying each other's company she pulled a thick folder out of her canvas bag and handed it to me.  As I opened it she explained that she was taking an online class (with about 400 other women) to better blogging and she challenged me to join her in this endeavor.  
Liz doesn't need to encourage me to find time to paint, but she likes to "push and nudge" me to be a better business person, and that I don't blog faithfully is one of her biggest beefs about me ! 

So..........after much deliberation, I decided to take the "31 days to a better blog Probloggers Challenge."

Task one is to write an "elevator pitch": a short description of the focus of our blogs.  When I started this blog two years ago, I wrote that I was "Talking to you about my life as a scuba diver and the art I have created because of it. "   The painting I put with this tag-line is called "Parrot Talk".  It shows 3 parrotfish in conversation.  I like my original tagline and think I will keep it as such.
Task one completed !

Ha! You are a cheater! But on the other hand, if something isn't broke, why fix it. Excellent tag line! And, awesome parrot fish picture.

Now, let's see how you do on the next task...

Hey, Bon, good for you for doing this blogging class. Let me know, will you, whatever you learn about how to make the leap from writing the blog to making it work as a powerful marketing tool... It's great that we have friends who push us, isn't it?

Hey Bonnie Lynn! good to hear from you. You were one of the first blogs I started following way back when. I love your art and would love to see more.
