Creative Blogs

Blogging has become quite the social media phenomenon in the last 2 years. They’re a fantastic tool to be using for both marketing and promoting yourself, your artwork, your organisation, basically anything that you do, or it can also be a brilliant way of putting your thoughts and inspirations down into words, a creative journal if you like.

Below are just some of the creative Blogs I’ve come across recently.

If you have a blog you would like to add to this list please do contact me.




  • Breathing Out – Occasional journal of Scottish writer and musician Clare O’Brien
  • The Truth About Lies – A writer based in Glasgow
  • Sea Penguin – The view from nowhere, to everywhere – or should that be the other way round?
  • John Crosbie – Various bits of writing, opinions, plays, screenpalys, poems etc


  • Theatre in Scotland –  Theatre in Scotland aims to inform the theatre going public of Scotland which shows are playing around the country and when, with reviews, interviews and much more
  • Scottish Ballet – Latest news from the Scottish Ballet
  • Citymoves Dance – Dance news and opportunities in the North East


  • The Spill Blog – An open to all music and culture blog which originated from the Guardian’s Readers Recommended community
  • Artists Talking – Artists Talking is a unique space to explore artists’ insights and perspectives on contemporary practice
  • UK Handmade – UK Handmade is a design led online magazine committed to showcasing and promoting the best creative talent the UK has to offer


* We’ve recently changed our blog set up on Northings which means that some of the content on the ‘old’ audience development blog hasn’t been available recently. However, I’ve finally found some time to copy and paste the most important content across to the ‘new’ audience development blog.
