Skippy Here!

Well clearly my attempt at engineering has failed miserable and I am now duly chastised and prone on the floor with embarrassment and a bad case of “notthinkingthroughits”. I am clearly on the wrong track in searching for a way to “bridge” anything. Skippy here is no engineer! Now for those of you who don’t know what this is about it is what you could call a “for your eyes only” or “don’t ask-a-blonde, don’t tell-a-blonde” . It isn’t important anyway now so we move on and hope she doesn’t get any further ideas:)
This little speed bump came from a need to preserve the dying enthusiasm in the bubble here. I see members leaving, receive bmails saying there’s just not enough support here for new aritst’s and it really isn’t always that we aren’t encouraging, we just don’t know how to find them. Not everyone leaving is doing so because RB can’t figure out the technical side of running a website. I’m not sure if there is a page that specifically says how to grow a following but maybe there needs to be one. If we can’t help out our newbies or those struggling to grow then we don’t need to be here. I wanna help, as many others here do, we just need to find a way.
Angela Walker has made a valid point. Communication doesn’t work if the street doesn’t go both ways. If you encourage, in most cases it comes back to you. Yes it does. I don’t think this site initially wanted to encourage art but by adding the ability to count views, comments etc it made it into a competition which many felt was a game they had to play. I hate to think that anyone’s art has been reduced to a number or an artist reduced to thinking their gift is based on a number and not the passion that went into it. Being a natural anti-numbers thinker as I am, nothing about that computes. I will probably never win the lottery because God knows he created me without the need for greed but I do have the need for speed:)) Now if I just offended again then you have to give me that one. It probably falls true for most artists or there wouldn’t be a term out there like “starving artists”? Poo poo on this, ignore it, spank me, tell me to dye my hair, it needed to be said and I’m without enough sense to do it so there!
Just think about finding someone new to support, step outside your bubble and invite some fresh eyes in and see if your own sight might be inspired anew. Just sayin…
