I have created some relationships with other bloggers yes indeed. That is what is wonderful about blogging...the connection you get with the world. Because being an artist can be very solitary, the blogging kind of opens up the world abit more and makes it feel not quite so big, lonely or overwhelming.
I've had people leave me messages from France, from Florida, from all over and it's so exciting to know that these people are seeing my work because of my blog.
Blogging thus far for me has been a very positive experience. My blog tends to be very authentic to my own artistic journey and I am drawn to blogs of similar style and truth and the people who maintain these blogs seem to be just lovely, positive and over all just really nice people. It's funny because sometimes I'll think 'oh I wish I could go for a coffe with this person..." and then you realize wait a minute they are all they way over.... but the connection and support that blogging provides is great.
At the same time, sometimes the blogging world can be overwhelming. Espeacially when you've come later to the game as I have! Sometimes it does feel like no one is tuning in or listening and going from blog to blog, seeing such amazing artists and work and their amazing journeys can sometimes leave you feeling below par! So I make sure I do my blog surfing on days where I am feeling solid and strong in my own little artistic venture/world.
