Blog Intern Editing Exercise
Please edit and return with your application materials.

I do not find facebook, or flickr to be much help. But saying that, here would be nothing I
would regret, b/c ANY type of promotion gets your art out there, and in the minds of
people. Maybe if I didn't live in a tiny town in the thumb of michigan, promoting would be
easier. But that's not changing anytime soon, so I work with what I have and just do my best!!
Some things work better for others and some things totally work for one shop and then not
yours. Just find your niche and what works for you. If you like blogs, promote your art on
blogs that bring customers in with the like of your items. I have bought ad space on some
decorating blogs...not sure how succesful that was though....
The hardest part is def. time manangment and the finances etc. THere are some days that I
DO NOT feel like putting canvas. But I see it there..staring at me. I always
end up paint. As for the money part, it is so hard to keep track of all the expenses. What is
coming in, what is going out...making sure you are charging enough, not charging too
much...When I have canvas, shipping, shipping supplies, stuffing..ect..to keep track of
it can seem like a burden, but is is so important!

Thanks
