04/16/2008: "Advantages of Blogging"
The weather here has been non-stop rain for weeks. I'm considering doing a series of paintings of what the world looks like through steamy, rain-streaked windows...all blurry and colorless, barely recognizable forms. Any takers?
Yesterday I got a copy of the article I wrote several months ago for Art Calendar magazine. It looks great, btw! I just felt a little embarrassed reading it, about how much better my business is doing since the blog (which is still true) but to come out the same time as my last post ranting about what a failure I am as a business person, well, the timing is a bit on the irony side for me.
Also, I emphasize the importance of blogging regularly, which I myself have not been doing of late. So if anything, this can serve as a cautionary tale. If you quit writing on your blog, people will quit reading it. Also, if you say your an "Artist" blog, but then never post any art or make any art for that matter, how long before you lose your street cred? Am I there yet?
