Many of your read the June 13th post where we told you we would be taking a break from blogging this summer. We thank you for your emails and tweets asking us if the website would disappear all together.
As you can imagine, keeping this blog going is incredibly time-consuming. But we, and I personally as the founder and primary writer, know this website is absolutely necessary. The blog traffic, tweets, and comments prove that.
In the past 2 weeks I’ve had the opportunity to do a few phone consultations with two artists - one in Colorado and one in Chicago – who read the blog and had some serious questions about what their next steps should be. After each phone call I felt even more of a burden to keep this blog going. There are so many talented artists who just don’t know where to start or how to start.
I truly believe it is important for these blogs to be written by fellow artists – people who have been there and done that, but aren’t too far up the totem pole to a point where they can no longer relate to the everyday independent artists. In other words, Grassrootsy is all about teaching our peers based on our own experiences. The content of these posts are experiential and that is what makes this blog unique. Each one, teach one.
With that said, we really encourage you to please continue sharing our content with your friends (via Facebook, Twitter), please continue to visit this blog regularly, and please continue to ask us questions that we can use for future posts.
And…if you really want to help Grassrootsy sustain itself, you can donate by subscribing to services that you probably already need (through our affiliate links). Services like…
So thank for your support! We love this blog and hope you do too!
