What to do?

So many distractions so little time. Is blogging the way anymore? Is it time to face up to FaceBook? Do I start Twittering? At the moment there is a mixed up soup of options to get the message out. Seems like none of them hit the spot any more. Confused as to what one should do now. Your thoughts?

  1. Hi John, I found Facebook Pages to be wonderful for artwork. It gets you exposure and you can interact with your 'fans'. :) I haven't gone the tweeting avenue yet, but I have had a FB page for a while now and love it! Good luck!

  2. Hello Rose. Thanks. Yes I also have a Facebook account and I am finding it more dynamic than the blog. Trouble is I hate the privacy options and find them difficult to manage effectively. I need to dig deeper and embrace it more. Trying to keep family/friends matters seperate from the art is a pain too. I have an art page, belong to some groups and can't make my mind which option is best. I haven't tweeted yet although I do follow some twitterers. Luck, yes I think we all need some. Thanks.

  3. I have had the same problem, John.Keeping family and art world altogether at FB! Actually the solution lies in keeping the people you really know on your personal account, be it friends,family.or "art friends"; while maintaining an art page for fans. Works for me!....blogging takes uyour time,yet I have made some wond er ful friends through it...so yeh,.I keep bloging.No twitter for me, I am not cut out for that.

  4. Hello John, as a new follower of your work and a technically challenged blogger, selfishly speaking, my choice would be for you to go to facebook. lol

  6. I'm on Facebook all the time John, which is why I'm not on blogger much these days and why it's taken months to get to this post. I've got a personal account and a page, and use the page more really. The personal account though has got a lot of artists in there. I now tend to put silly jokes there, fave songs and things like that rather than type about humdrum life. I'll go and check out your page now :)

  7. I've only just started my blog and was on fb first - started an art page earlier this year and started the blog this month so very new to this - only been painting 18 months so new to art as well! definitely keep art page and friends page separate but can still share things between them. Haven't got a clue about twitter - don't get it at all, beyond me!!
