After much thought & consideration, I have decided to bid the blogosphere goodbye. I promised myself when I first began a blog on Blogger in 2007 that as long as it was a pleasure, not a pain, I would continue. Although I still want to share images of my work online, I no longer feel a burning desire to write about it in a blog format.
I will be setting up a more traditional website & will have the contents of both blogs published into books that I can keep. My journey in tapestry so far has followed many paths & I want to keep the record of that journey. Once the website is up (which will be via the desertsongstudio.com address), poof!, the blogs will be gone baby, gone. Many, many thanks to all who have kept me company by following my blog & leaving kind & interesting comments!
While I am still interested in journaling, I now want to keep it more private & personal, only occasionally sharing online, which after some research I found is possible to do with any number of journaling apps available for phones/tablets/desktop computers. I plan to use Twitter, which can be considered a microblog of sorts, as an active form of staying connected with other artists. If you’re already in the Twitter nest, you can connect with me here: https://twitter.com/desertsonghart . I still feel a strong aversion to Facebook, so that is not in the future for me. During the short time I’ve been dabbling with Twitter, I have enjoyed much more relevant & interesting-to-me content in regards to tapestry & art than I ever did on FB. I also like the restriction of text usage on Twitter… less is more!
