Are Artists Blogs Still Relevant?

Blogging

I’m just wondering if artist’s blogs are still relevant. If you got to some of the art websites on the web, they will either say a blog is a necessity if you are a working professional — or — they will say blogs are a thing of the past.

Well, I’ve started this blog so I am hoping it’s the former — or I’m just thinking, I have nothing to lose by having a blog and possibly something to gain. I’m curious as to what other artists think on this subject and I’m posting this here to try and get the ball rolling on your comments.
