One area of small businesses that seem to be catching blog fever are artists. We've already profiled a photographer and a sign maker, and I would guess many more artists will be highlighted in the near future.
Today's blog is an artist I found on the Technorati Blog Search for the term 'painter.' Judith HeartSong was the 5th blog to appear and is a solid example of an artist's small business blog.
Ok, the more I read this blog, the more I love this blog. It's just...interesting. This is probably the most personal blog we've featured on Pajama Market and for this reason, I think it works!
Art is a very personal choice. Sometimes pieces of art are love at first site, and sometimes they are appreciated after learning their history and knowing the artist. This blog gives us tremendous insight to know the artist and become attached to the artwork through her life.
This is a short post on a recent trip to Arizona. I think it has some poetic qualities. Here is a snippet:
Coyotes calling in the dark.
Reaching an elevation of 8,046 feet.

This is a journal type blog where the writer uses the blog media to keep a journal. For most businesses, I think this would be a tough blog to do well. For example, if you run an ice cream shop, we don't care about what you did on vacation, we care about ice cream and that's what the blog should focus on.
But in certain professions, a journal works very well, and I think this is a great example. I think we, as a customer, want to be educated on the artist when we buy art. We like to know what the story is behind various pieces the artist has created, and we like to know what the process is that the artist goes through in their personal lives to create such examples of passionate creativity.
