Formatting - Your post need not be a circus. If you are not good with formatting, then stick to a theme that is light and descent in colors and the post layout. If you are good with trying new stuff then use that skill to better express through colors, fonts and layouts. Avoid colors that are dark and fonts that are overtly bright.
People come to your blog out of choice and not any compulsion. If you remember this, the rest is not important enough.
Blogging is a must for artists, a great way to display your work, connect with your prospective buyers and collectors!
