The Blogging Painters is a collaborative effort to share industry knowledge, product reviews, project examples and customer resources. These articles can be used to improve your own company practices, learn of new trends and products, as well as educate your customers.
Many of our bloggers, while experienced contractors, are new to the blogosphere. This can be a place to “get your feet wet” as far as the technical side of using a WordPress Blog. If you are not ready to tackle the job of setting up your own blog and maintaining it, this could be a place for you to share your knowledge in an easy to use way.
There are several ways to participate in the Blogging Painters.
Membership in Blogging Painters is fairly simple, we ask that you subscribe and engage in the Social Media sites of other members and industry sites, sharing new information, commenting and collaborating. Members that participate will be listed on our authors page. They may also submit drafts for publication under the Guest Category.
After being active members, many decide they would like to contribute here, we welcome that. We will set up an account that allows you to log in and be published under your own name as author with a short bio. These posts will be held in draft mode for review and approval. We ask that you post at least once a month to remain active. Check our guest authors here. More guidelines here.
The Associates are members of the Industry that may or may not be directly related to painting, but are considered to be experts in the fields of business, marketing and social media. We continue to seek out professionals that can bring their insight to the Blogging Painters.
These are the core members of the blog. These members are able to post and publish their articles and may have access to site stats. They are available to members to help with any situation and are active in the continued improvement of Blogging Painters.
We encourage you to add a link to the Blogging Painters to your page. This could be in the blogroll on your blog, a page on your site, or a section on your site saying something like, “Check out my Guest Blog”.
