This week has been amazing. I have pretty much completely immersed myself into drawing and editing photographs Plus, I have also had a fantastic response to my visual posts, across the social media sites that I use. Facebook and Instagram in particular are becoming close favorites, besides my website. When I started out blogging last November, I was skeptical as to whether anyone would like my work or be interested in anything I would write about. I lacked confidence because I had never asked a wider audience, outside of people close to me, for their opinions.
Over the last 8 months I have grown in enthusiasm with each passing ‘like’ or comment. I’ve learnt so much. What seems to be a fundamental rule is that it takes patience, interaction with others and lots of time, to give yourself an on line presence; no matter what creative field you are in. You could also spend vast sums of cash too, however there is a satisfaction that comes without the need of a hefty price tag. If you are willing to use your own skills, you can achieve more than you thought possible.
I am still on an adventure with my art. It comes with it’s rewards, it’s challenges. I may not have fully grasped hashtagging, or Twitter, but I am giving it a whirl anyway.
