In the art world (which I am barely on the cusp of) it is imperative to promote oneself with a website. As someone who wishes to become an artist, my ploy consists of acting like an artist as per the cliched "if you can't make it, fake it" maxim. Thus I have a website and now, a blog. I was hesitant to start a blog as I sort of wanted to maintain that mysterious artist allure. I talk too much and I thought I could curtail that impulse by eliminating all avenues in which to over explain. I have abandoned that track, obviously, as the need to use words overwhelms my common sense.
