So I have been struggling with this Facebook thing. The whole, get a fan page, and get as many people as you can to “like” your witty posts. I mean, what is that? It could be rejection on a silver platter. Ain’t nobody got time for that.
But I went ahead and I started a page despite my fears. It’s all very new and uncomfortable for me. I enjoy making art. I make it to hopefully share it. Facebook is a pretty reasonable place to find people to share it with. It will be lovely if people buy it someday, but the beauty of the internet, whether you are on Facebook, WordPress, Instagram… is the opportunity to share it with the world… right then and there with a little button. Someone might see something I make and smile, and that alone is awesome. I think about all the art I’ve had a chance to see, that I would not otherwise in my daily life. If it were not for the internet, the only art I would see is the occasional crayon ravaged Sponge Bob ripped from a coloring book in my neighbors cubicle. No, I’m exaggerating. There’s actually one coworker’s 6 year old I’m hoping to commission pretty soon. There is nothing better than kids art! i just really enjoy variety and you don’t get that in the middle of Connecticut. Facebook has been one of the many places online that has offered this variety and opportunity to get a glimpse of the most amazing art, writing, and photography.
Simply stated, I love art… I love other people’s art, and I love to share my own art. I love what art does for people, dwelling spaces and communities. I’ve been sharing my art, writing and I-phone photos here on this WordPress blog for a few years now, and this is really my home online. People are nice here. I love to find other writers and artists on Freshly Pressed and the tag cloud. Checking my Facebook has typically been pretty random for me, as opposed to being a daily ritual. But I hope the page will be an extension of sbwd somehow.
