First I want to share with you a representative photo of the geography of where I live in the mountains. Here is a soccer field, usually found in the middle of town or at least close to the central square and the church. Mountains in the background are close to where I actually live… where the Gods have wars throwing lightening darts and huge boulders at one another during the rainy season.
One of the reasons to write this post today is a result of my beginning my adventure into creating blogs for others. This is alot more work than I thought it would be. I’m using the first one as a test case to determine the amount of work and to experience the ‘client’s’ response to the effort. Check out
and let me know what you think of it! This site was difficult because it’s a very complex template, most of which I couldn’t figure out. At this point it’s an okay structure – primarily because Roberto isn’t using it! HA!! There’s alot more text that could be added, and better functionality could be impressed upon it so that the sidebar isn’t separate from the Home Page, but I haven’t figured out that part yet and he doesn’t need it yet, thank goddess! At any rate, probably the most profound part of this experience thus far – for me – is Roberto’s question…. ‘What do I do with this?’ Made me pause and after a couple of days pondering his question… the question remains. I know I write my blogs out of a compulsion to not only write, but to stay in touch with friends (even tho they don’t comment… I know they read it and it’s a way to bridge not being with them). There’s also a component of writing my blogs that has to do with painting word pictures attractive enough to compel others to visit me and Costa Rica. But what if I were a business… like Roberto’s? I guess his blog is a moving, ever evolving business card. From a marketing standpoint how would you utilize his blog to help him build a business?
Okay, enough on that, although that thread is not going away until I can answer in a tangible manner… I’ve completed two new paintings I’ll share with you here… next weekend is the family July birthday party gathering, so there will be pics galore to share! It’s at my house this time and I’m going to ask the kids to take the pics… should be fun!
