Nine years is a long time

I just realized that I have had this little blog for nine years now. It has suffered extended periods of neglect while I flirted with other social media platforms (you really must believe me when I say I am not that fickle in my offline life), but it has persevered, and I am back with a bouquet of flowers and a box of chocolates, hoping it will forgive my transgressions.

I deleted my Twitter account, because after about the same amount of time, I couldn't figure out why I should be on there. Twitter moves at the speed of light, and I....well, I don't.

Facebook was my go-to for several years, but now it has become a "pay to play" platform. (Posts on my business page will only reach 2 - 6%, on average, of the 3,249 people who have Liked the page unless I "boost" my posts with cold hard cash.) I can't really afford not to use the Facebook page because of the search engine presence it contributes, but it becomes less useful as a way of connecting with people who are interested in my art.

So here I am, reevaluating the slow, verbose blog. The outlet that lets me - no, expects me - to run off at the mouth. And I have decided that all things considered, I like it that way.

I have spent the last few months collecting photos of vignettes that are inspiring, and will perhaps one day become a mosaic. Here are just a few:








I hope you'll follow along with the blog if you have an interest in my art. You can use a blog reader app like Feedly or Panda, or just enter your email in the box in the column on the right and each post will be delivered to your email inbox. If you're worried about too much email from me, see paragraph one above...

And y'know, there is a comment option on this blog - we can still talk and discuss things, just like we used to on Facebook. Ah, good times...
