Blog Leads to Blog - Finding New Challenges

Its amazing how one blog leads to another and you discover a whole new network of art bloggers and new challenges. When you get to a new blog you enjoy its always a good idea to check the profile. On the profile there is usually a list of blogs that that blogger follows. That is how I stumbled upon 2 new art/sketch challenges that I may try along with WDE

The first one I found from My French Easel I was checking out one of the blogs he follows and found Jerry Point's blog with a description of this new challenge.

The second challenge site Virtual Sketch Date I found while browsing on Empty Easel. I really love this newsletter and was reading the Thursday motivation article by Rose Welty . Went to herblog and found VSD

I have plans for a creative weekend.

Anonymity- Going Public

Blogging is a lot of work and a lot of fun. You keep learning and
also keep in touch with others that are doing blogs similar to your
own. Recently I suggested to my cousin Bernie that he should start
his own blog and get his work up there... on the web.. he started his
blog .... and through it I saw the options of following and being
followed. So I decided to list the blogs that I follow.... mainly
through subscriptions to their newsletters.... Little did I know that
my up till now anonymous blog .. which up till now was mainly for some very close family and friends... would make me more public.....I am not sure how I feel about this.... I am still quite insecure about my work... but the ball has started to roll and I got a surprise that my name was mentioned in one of the blogs...

On the right hand side of this blog you can see the blogs I follow.....
