I love how my blog has helped connect me to so many other talented artists from around the world, literally. I've connected with wonderful people from Australia, Canada, the Philippines, Germany, and the list goes on. Not to mention, my fellow American bloggers. Through blogging I have found my local art organization, Licking County Arts, as well as artists within my own state, some being just minutes away. The Internet truly is amazing.
There will be no cake or balloons or party. I'm simply pleased with what I've accomplished through creating this blog. I still have some quirks to work through. It's not perfect. I have yet to figure out how to create a newsletter. So for those of you still awaiting an email with a newsletter, don't hold your breath. I am currently researching it at this time and hope to get one up and running this summer. We'll see. For now, you can still visit my blog to see what I'm up to. You can also find me on facebook at Gretchen Bjornson ART. I'm getting ready to hit a milestone there as well. I'm only 9 people away from 100! I do plan to celebrate with some kind of giveaway when I hit the big 100.
Thanks to those of you who are loyal followers. I'm a mom first, so my blogging habits may be sporadic as I still have to manage a household, feed my family, and make my way through mounds of laundry that seem never ending before I can settle in to do what I love....which is art.
On to another year of blogging.....
