A few months ago I decided to start a small project on Tumblr, attempting to bring together a little database of all the historic art blogs. I did try to contact a few people when I first came up with this idea, but then I got really busy with University work. However, I now have a lot of free time! And so I would like to push forward with this, if people would like to support it.
Basically, you will be free exposure for your blog and (hopefully) more followers and appreciation for online art curators!
Each post on this art historian Tumblr will be about a different art history blog, maybe a little questionnaire will be made and you can give an introduction to your blog and why you run it.
Also, I will tag (with your help and suggestions) the main periods and styles found on your page so that we can have a tag page, making it easy for people to find the art blogs they are most interested in.
I am going to try and focus on historic art, so anything at all dating up until the turn of the century, around 1910 or so, will be involved. Also this covers all mediums, like sculpture, photography, architecture and painting, etc.
I already have a small list, but if you would like to take part please, please message me or reblog/comment on this post! ALSO, reblog this post to try and get more people involved.
I would be pleased if a few people would like to help me run this blog, so let me know if you feel like taking on a small challenge! Also if you would like to post small updates about your blog every now and then, I can make you an admin of the page.
