The Artists Synchroblog


You may be thinking – Huuuuuh? What’s a synchroblog?

(I thought that the first time I was invited to participate in one many years ago!)

A synchroblog is a synchronized blogging event. It’s a great way to have fun, learn, and increase your blog traffic.

Our Synchroblog will include bloggers from around the world working in various mediums. We will all blog about the same topic at the same time on a set schedule.

Here’s a little visual that might help. 🙂


YAY! Fun, right!?

But, wait – there’s a twist. (here is where things get REALLY fun)

Rather than have a straight topic format, we are going to switch it

up with some ‘Pinterest Projects’. We all love Pinterest and there is a LOT of pinning going on, but some of us aren’t parlaying that pinning into process or producing anything with those pins.

The time has come to take action! So every other month, rather than blogging on a topic, we will have a Pinterest Project Party where participants will actually USE a pin (of their choosing) for a project or a meal or a piece of art. SOMEthing. And then blog about it. AND pin it!

And we’ll all link up to each other which will be enormous fun to link-hop and read, but will also increase our exposure. In addition, one blogger’s post will be selected (at random) each month to be featured here on the Network website!

A taste of some general topic ideas that we’ll frame a blogpost/question around:
• Primary influences
• Show Booths and/or Product Packaging

• Branding, Mission/Value Statement, Artist Statement
• Process of creating (solitude, music, morning or night…)
• Paying it forward

We are encouraging artists from ALL mediums (not just jewelry) and non-artists alike to join in. What we share can inspire us ALL!

Several people have expressed interest and I am REALLY hoping that YOU will join in too!

  1. I’m interested but am wondering if we can pick and choose which topics to engage in. In other words – participate some months but not all.

    • Hi Janet! YES! You can pick and choose. We’re just going to ask that people participate ‘consistently’ as in not twice a year…but more often. Ya know? I hope you will join us!

  2. Hi Janice,
    I’d be interested in participating – I’ve been on a bit of a break from both metal smithing and blogging and want to start both up again. This will give me a push in the right direction.

  3. Just trying to get my website done Janice, I’ll get the link to you ASAP!

  4. I am also interested, but first I have to learn to blog. I have joined a Women’s Blogging Group and will attend my first meeting on Sunday.

  5. I think it is a great idea. I am a jewerly designer and sell my created jewelry. I’d like to join in this. Are you going to let us know on which topic we should focus on a particular week or is it random? I’ll check your link that you provided in this blog and may get my answer. Will visit again. Dita.

  6. What a great idea. I will have to give this a try soon. I’m still getting the hang of blogging, but this is a lovely idea, indeed.
