As of the last posting, That boat has sailed, there are now three hundred marked points where you can (or could) look for art on this blog’s map. Some points actually reference several pieces of art and multiple posts, notably for the Norf Wall and Off the Wall projects. Some of the art, including the one from the last post, no longer exists. I am working on updating the relevant pages. This isn’t just a guide though, it’s also an archive (I am an historian, after all), so I think it’s important to maintain a record of what has come and gone.
I went through all the markers to catch any editing problems. Along the way, I noticed something. Each marker has an image of the art that can be found at that spot. I have become a lot more particular about the photos I use on this blog. Whereas I once tolerated heavy shadows and bad light, I do so no more. I have several images for future posts filed under the heading “needs to be reshot!”
The blog is motoring along as we approach the second anniversary in June. In 2017, 400-700 page views a month was normal. Since January, 1400 has been the norm, peaking with 1675 in March. In all of 2017, there were 7583 page views. As of this posting, there have 6243 for all of 2018 so far, more than double last year’s pace. Still small potatoes, but a healthy growth trajectory. It helps that some posts remain perennially popular. The Kind Way is the reigning champ.
Located on a tab on the menu bar. Look for a new menu tab soonish for artists (though not right away – it’s a slow process and I’m about halfway through).
