Social Media

Photo I posted recently on Instagram and Facebook
There are so many different ways to connect on the Internet that it's easy to get sucked into cyber space, trolling different sites.  By the same token, it's hard to decide what to focus on and where to spend your time if you're using the net to keep an artistic presence.

I'm reviewing how I spend my time to maximize effort and impact.  I know I won't give up my blog; I love it too much.  In light of the uptick in my museum work, it's fair to adjust my -- and your expectations -- on posting. There may be more, shorter, posts or longer posts once a week.  I'll be figuring it out as I go along.

I have Facebook and Instagram accounts, too.  Lately, I've been linking my photos to both Instagram and Facebook.  I enjoy the "quick fix" of seeing my pictures on-line.  I don't often share those photos on my blog because I wonder about duplicate posting.  I worry that you might get bored or turned off by seeing the same things twice.  But, maybe I'm wrong.  So, I'd like to know, do you

-- See my FB and Instagram posts and, therefore, don't want to see duplicates on my blog
-- Don't see my FB and Instagram posts so would like to see those posts here on my blog
-- Don't have a preference

What about blog content?  Is there anything you'd like to see more of or less of on my blog?

I have a Twitter account but never remember to post.  Do you read Twitter?  Yes or No?

What about Pinterest?  Flickr?  Are there sites I should investigate and participate in?

Please post your comments and thoughts about social media and my blog.  I'd appreciate your feedback on what you're reading here because I do so appreciate that you take the time to read my blog and want to be sure you stay interested!

I thoroughly enjoy reading your blog, hearing what you have to say and looking at your beautiful pictures. I hardly ever go to Facebook and never go to Instagram, so I hope you won't be giving up your blog.
