I've been organizing my website a lot lately. This has lead me a particular revelation -- My art website is not the primary place in which I display my art... That's sad considering my name is the domain name. So, I have a plan to make it the primary place:
I'm Going to Give Away Free Limited Edition Prints
It's an attempt to create more of a community on my website. You see, I notice that I talk a lot on Twitter and Facebook about my art, but never on my own site, which seems a little counterproductive. So, I'm going to start giving the first of a limited edition print away for people who actually comment on my website instead of on social media websites. I'm not certain how I'll do it just yet.
Maybe I'll give it away to the first person to comment (a real comment) -- but increasingly, I'm thinking about just picking someone at random who posted a comment on the first day that the new post was created. If no one posts I get to keep it for myself :)
What do you think? Is it a good way to help develop a community on my website? Do you have any suggestions for how to do it better?
Comments will be approved before showing up.
I will send you updates on upcoming art shows. Also, I will occasionally tell you about new art I'm making and give you a chance to collect my art before I post them on my site for sale.
