Life happens. I get that. I haven’t blogged in almost a month because life happened. Work and school combined with a back injury really took control of my time and being inspired to blog just didn’t happen. And while I’d like to think I’d be prepared and have a blog post ready in advance or find something to write about regardless, well, yeah. Reality can be quite different. No matter what, though, there’s always a lesson if you’re paying attention.
Several years ago I was forced by circumstances to re-consider what really matters.
And I am grateful.
I make a living with social media – I’m no expert – but I make a living. Doing so has taught me a lot and I continue to learn more every day. Social media can be a great way to promote your work and connect with an audience all over the world. Or can it? The question was posted by photographer friend Peter Tellone about whether you can sell art (real art) with social media given that people spend so little time looking at anything anymore. In this age of instant everything most don’t want to stop to think, much less to feel something. So how can your art succeed?
