Venturing out into the world
My blog has been accepted into the Blogburst network. Pluck's BlogBurst network is an opt-in aggregation and syndication service that brings high-quality, topical blogs together with high-traffic web sites. With BlogBurst, bloggers gain visibility, audience reach and traffic through placement on major online publishers and media destinations in real time.
This is another step towards revitalizing my career as an artist once more. Getting my name out into the world, as well as my work does take time and a lot of hard work. Its a full time job in its own right to make the rounds of stores, vets, shelters, shows, breeders, etc etc, to place a seed of thought about portraits in the target groups. Today I created a full page list of people and avenues that I should pursue to make contacts. I need to take a week off just to do that!
Connections in print and in person are time consuming and expensive in some ways, but I'm hoping they will pay off.
Today I approved the proofs of the limited edition prints that I am producing and they should be ready in the next few days. Then time for more marketing. Its also time for developing a website to promote portraits and prints. Time, time, time...
