Still learning about using social media

I’m continuing to learn about using social media to support and promote my creative practice. It is simultaneously fascinating and mind-boggling to consider all the possibilities for getting one’s art out into the world. I now have a Flickr photostream. As much as I’ve enjoyed seeing other people’s photos on Flickr, it never occurred to me – until now – that I could use it to show my paintings. (Kinda seems obvious now!) I’m also using HootSuite to manage my Twitter, Facebook, Google +, and WordPress accounts all at once. Even if one has very little experience with social media (like me), it’s easy to make great strides in getting one’s art visible in a short amount of time.

I have Brainard Carey’s book, “New Markets for Artists” to thank for all this advice!
