Social Networking: Does it Pay?

I've been selling my art online since 2005. I wasn't "connected" and yet was doing pretty well for myself. I had found a couple online galleries to sell through. Both took small commissions and it was a great way for me to start learning the ropes of selling online and all that goes with it, like shipping and commissions. Since then, I have revamped my website three times, those online galleries have disappeared and I jumped on the Etsy bandwagon. Last year was a good year for me and my pottery. But it has made me take a look at myself as an artist and what it is I really want to achieve.

I knew that when this new year started, I wanted to do a few things differently. I've been saying for years that I want to get back to sculpting and painting more. This would mean less time spent in the pottery studio. And I am preparing to make that jump. One of the ways I plan to do just that is to limit my time spent on social media. I know what works for me and what doesn't. So if you're "connected" socially on the world wide web and notice that I haven't been around much, you can probably assume that I'm busy working in my studio on a new sculpture or large painting with little time to waste. 

I will continue to write blog posts, so if you care to see what I'm working on, please continue to check in every now and then! 

Thank you for your love and continued support!
