In the midst of writing my weekly newsletter for ArtFairCalendar.com (you are a subscriber, aren't you?) I started reviewing this site for tidbits of activity. As they say in blog world, OMG! I really try to keep up but someone out there has been talking about ArtFairInsiders.com to others. Who in Virginia started that flood of
? Was someone talking about us at an art fair? At last count ten new members joined us from that state. Who do we give credit to? Was it Dave from Norfolk? Whatever, thanks so much.
Then I went looking for
. Not only do we have the high profile ones by our stalwart bloggers Nels Johnson, Michelle Sholund, Linda Anderson (and many more), but I visited the
tab and saw lots more, including: Don Crozier, Jorge Caligiuri, Whitney Peckman, John Hatcher, Cindy Schmidt, C. David, Pauline Ross, Terri Drake, Kaelin Cordis, Genece Hamby, David Hipwell, Lizz Harris, and so many more covering art fairs from Missouri to Massachusetts. Very cool! There are over
in the gallery! And, amazingly
! We know Ron Mellott did not write all of those, or William Eickhorst or Paula Johnson.
We have had a few spammers that I have had the high pleasure of "banning" from the network. Thanks to those of you who ferreted them out and let me know. I'm still waiting for participation from DJ "Assassin" who joined in the winter. This is my sincere thanks for everyone's participation (even you lurkers). Art Fair Insiders is just about to celebrate its 1st birthday. Look what we have done together. I'm trying to come up with some presents to celebrate. Maybe you have some ideas? Are you recruiting for Art Fair Insiders? I hope so. We are working to help everyone out in this business and I need numbers so I can impress advertisers so I can afford to keep this running and pay my Internet bill. Right? You're there for me, I know. How about some suggestions below to let me know how I (we) can improve the site. Your input would be so welcome and it would be great to know I'm not just talking to myself.
