ARTISANS STRIVING TO PROVIDE THE MOST ENJOYABLE AND INFORMATIVE FAUX FINISHING
BLOG FOR ONLINE READERS
FL – Blogging has taken the world by storm.
In fact, statistics conclude that out of the 147 million people who use the Internet,
57 million read blogs regularly. According to figures provided by Blogworld and
New Media Expo, 89% of companies surveyed believed that blogging would become
more important in the next five (5) years. They also state that 22 of the 100
most popular websites in the world are blogs.
have begun providing blogs as a way to reach out to their consumers. For
Regina Garay, Creative Director and Owner of Garay Artisans, Inc., this was the
perfect reason to start writing one. “It was a beautiful way to provide
information to our website visitors and to have them get to know us in a more
personal way. Our blog – which I call Blah, Blah, Blog – has really
blossomed into an enjoyable aspect of our company and its website. Our webstats
show that we receive a tremendous amount of repeat traffic to our site –
really fueled by the inclusion of the blog.” In fact, some of the loyal
readers have called the blog "witty", "quite charming"
and possessing "extraordinary work" and "great design advice."
Garay has started to implement monthly features and topics to fill the need for
more information. “There are many interior design blogs out there –
great ones. I started to really focus my blog on what we do – faux finishes
– and the peripheral design elements that can surround our type of artwork.
I call it a diary of the visual magic surrounding us.” To this end, the
blog has now expanded to feature the following elements:
on The Pros:a monthly segment in which a design
industry insider is interviewed and offers their guidance and advice to the blog
2) DIY Finishes:
a bimonthly feature in which a new finish – beautiful yet relatively easy
to incorporate – will be taught to the DIY blog visitors. Videos and/or
photographs will accompany the step-by-step instructions;
suggestions and recommendations for wonderful art, design and pattern literature;
unusual and inspired questions received via the Garay Artisans website. Both question
and answer will be posted for all to benefit;
on Studios: this aspect will focus on introducing
wonderful local and national workshop studios to any blog reader desiring to take
6) Behind the Finish:
a fun and fizzy look at the Garay Artisans crew tackling a project. This feature
will cover everything from prepping to the final touch-up stages while having
a great time seeing the team interact with one another.
will be incorporating podcasts (audio files) and vlogging (video logs) in
the near future in order to make the experience “much more than just the
written word”. Her goal is to create an enjoyable and informative faux
finishing blog located in cyberspace. “I’m an avid reader of blogs
and have found my world expanded by the information and links found in them –
not to mention having met some really interesting people. I’d like to try
to create some of that magic for our blog readers and have them come away feeling,
via a chatty and personal blog, as if they’ve learned something unique and
wonderful about the art and design world”.
