Artist Telesummit

On January 23rd I completed the seven day Smartist-Telesummit 2008. Araine Goodwin, the creator and coordinator, did a masterful job hosting eleven panelists. Wow, what a wealth of information for emerging, mid-career, and established artists! I'm still processing it all. I was particularly impacted by two of the guests. Mari Smith creatively addressed various features of Facebook and Twitter and its value for artists. As a bit of trivia - she said 270,000 people sign up for Facebook every day! Nancy Marmolejo gave wonderful tips on social networking. Her emphasis on the value of blogs prompted me to get blogging! What a learning curve! Reminds me of this light thought: "I am always ready to learn although I don't always like being taught." ~ Winston Churchill. I wonder if that is why my prayer since my late 20's is "Make me teachable."? :0)
