August is here and heading out before I have had my fill of dog days.
The weather has been more fall like and less summer like.
We are besieged with butterflies.
I have been wondering about blogging lately as I watch more and more folks heading off to other social media and stepping away from their blogs.
Are we really though with writing more than one sentence and moving on to the next great thing as quick as the butterfly moves from flower to flower?
I posted a picture of one of Mark's pitchers on FB and it went crazy.
Crazy, as in it had over 1,600 views in less than 24 hours.
12 people shared it.
It had a life of its own.
What does this mean?
I can not wrap my head around this as a marking tool.
Just because it had all those views does that mean that 1,600 people will now come knocking at my house looking for our work to buy?
It is interesting times that we live in.
If I do not post this link on FB it will be read by few.
When I put this link on FB and other sites the hits go up by many.
Again, where does that takes us?
As a person who makes their living selling pottery, how do I market to the masses that are looking?
Or, is the looking now the new way to collect.
I recently ran across a Pin-terest site where the person had many, many ,many pictures of potter's work.
But, does he own any pottery, I wondered.
Are we just collecting images?
Many things to wonder and think about these days.
Meanwhile, we are working, making pots and hopefully paying the bills.
