Do You Keep Up With Technology and Social Media?

     If you have a blog or website or Etsy shop or other, how often do you check behind the scenes? Apparently, for me, not often enough. I just discovered that I had many comments on my blog waiting for me to ok publishing them. I was just browsing through the settings on blogger and accidentally came across them sitting there for months waiting for me to approve them. That was a surprise. A nice one that so many had taken the time to make comments. But, in the past, I used to get email notification that someone had commented and then I'd approve it right away. It seems that those email notifications somehow got shut off. So now I went ahead and approved all of those waiting comments. I apologize and will find out how to get those notifications to me back again. Thank you for reading my blog and making comments. It's so nice to know there are people out there who care. I hope that some day I can meet some of you in person.
      I also forgot to take my Etsy shop off of vacation mode. I put it on vacation while my solo show was going so that I wouldn't have any conflict with sales. It's up and operating again. I have been keeping up with Instagram, though. I find that to be very satisfying. I decided to use it to promote my art as a love of nature since my art is always about nature. So on Instagram, I mostly post short videos or still photos of things I discover when I'm out and about on the bike trail and in my yard. I take a rest stop on the bike trail at the same place each time just a few days apart and in that one spot have discovered amazing things and am surprised by the changes that take place so quickly.

I'd love for you to follow me on Instagram #reginabdunn if you want some quiet nature interludes interspersed with some art here and there. In the meantime, I'm linking to Off The Wall Friday where you can find other art blogs. Please make comments so that the artists know you stopped by. Thanks for visiting.
