Another activity that I would have to rate as one of my top five is to walk through bookstores (old or new, modern or flea market, any and all bookstores) and spend hours at a time looking through the book shelves of every genre. And, of course spending way too much time in the magazine and periodicals section.
This past week I came across a magazine called Artful Blogging - a magazine dedicated to "Visually Inspiring Online Journals".
The cover was artfully set and colorfully eye catching. The entire magazine had pictures and descriptions of blog sites maintained by those who are artful and creative.
For example, www.kellyinkstudio.blogspot.com is written by a nature photographer. A jewelry designer maintains a site at www.speckled-egg.blogspot.com.
The magazine reviews blogs that are just fun to explore and to learn how creative minds work and play. Check out the magazine or google artful blogs then visit the blogs listed. Leave comments on what you think of their journals and support fellow bloggers as well as keeping art alive.
