Just to be clear – I agree with you that people want to connect with the artist. I feel that when you add an extra layer – an idea of how you want to inspire your readers – your blog will become even more valuable and more shareable.
When you write with the idea to inspire your readers, you can still weave lots of personal stories into your blog posts so readers can connect with you as a person and as an artist.
Enchant readers. Woo customers. Win business.
