Does this mean my work is just not buyable? Or am i just not 'networking' hard enough.
Twitter.....i find this a very lonely social networking site. Most of you will probably be screaming at the monitor 'no way'. But seriously, it is. Half the time i stare at it not quite knowing what to say, therefore i plug my blog, shop etc....well isn't that just spamming? and doesn't that wind people up?
FB......getting people to actually 'like' your page is half the battle....100 and something fans later and it still doesn't seem to work for me.
Blog.....as i said, i update and update. I visit other blogs and comment. Yet comments on my page are few and far between and most of my followers probably don't even come back for a second read.
Etsy.....well....i have seen some real rubbish on there. Hair accessories that a 3 year old could throw together (no offence etsy people and i'm bound to now get many followers desert me) but its true! I spend hours re-inventing myself as an 'artist', trying to paint for my audience. It's hard....again sales are few.
As a 'shy artist type' i am not confident with my work and it took lots of years and courage to actually show it....what is the answer?
I guess now this is the bit where i show a new painting and link it into my post
'It's ok to wear your heart on your sleeve'
Yes, i guess that kinda works :)
