I feel is time to move on.
Yes, time to start writing a blog from my website.
I can't help thinking that I've said practically all I can say. That I'm a bit fatigued of hearing myself "talk" and wonder if others are, too.
Or if anybody is listening at all.
What once was an enjoyable activity has become sort of an obligation, a source of anxiety. Specially with blogger's bugs.
Posting my art in two places takes quite a bit of time, which I can use to paint.
My art sells quite well, but not through this blog, ever.
I hardly get any comments, even though I have seventy four subscribers.
And from all those, only a few, click on the posts, if that.
I get lots of spam comments, of course.
Some days I get about six hundred visitors.
Most days is about between 150 or so.
But not the collector kind.
Maybe that is my fault. I am not a writer and not into politics or social issues.
My content is just my art, mainly.
There's one thing I've been wanting to do for a long time, besides shutting down my blog, and that is to take down my follower count.
I've always disliked that button, because it seriously changed the world of blogging when they added it. What used to be more of a community turned into kind of a popularity contest and self promoting tool (for the followers).
Now I'm thinking it's time to get rid of that button.
If somebody is really serious about following you, they subscribe to your newsletter and read it.
My real collectors are subscribed to my website's newsletters and send me emails commenting about my new work.
Now that's uplifting.
I probably shouldn't be telling you these things, but here I am doing it anyway.
Writing stuff like this helps me feels better.
As much as I want to shut down the blog and just keep my website, a part of me still wants to participate in this community as well.
But time has come to do it.
Maybe I'll do something cool and different, like sign up for Tumblr.
I will leave this blog as it is and start a blog from my website.
So, if you like my art and want to follow my new posts, please go to my
WEBSITE and register for my newsletters.
I just want to say Thank You! to all my true and loyal followers!
