in Being an Artist

Out in the World

Or at least out in the internet.

In the past week some of writing has appeared on other blogs.

1) Barb Harms interviewed me on her blog.

2) I wrote a guest post about why I switched to E-junkie from paypal over on art biz blog: Eight Reasons to Use an E-junkie Shopping Cart

My posts on looking forward to 2011 are delayed a few days due to an unpleasant cold that has come to visit. I spent most of yesterday sleeping so my expectation is this will be short lived. I have the next post mostly written and will hopefully complete it tonight.

The List
