“Blogs used to be like online diaries for individual people to share their thoughts and observations, but that big media guys and corporate PR machines are using blogs in a big way; which has created an ideology about blogs where posts have become plugs to products, have some type of marketed branded approach or direction.

I did some drawings..
These last two days were spent home taking care of my sick son. Both of my kids slept in my bed with me for the past two nights.

The other thing is I'm addicted to twitter and the rest of the internet. I'd rather be packaging prints or original art and shipping out. LOL I love my free social media its has allowed me to have this lovely blog. The funny thing about this blog is it started out being all about art then it got way too personal. Now to me it lacks that personal touch. I think its because I don't want to be negative and share the darkness that I find myself being stuck in. But then I came upon a blog article I read by Don Dodge, Director of Business Development for Microsoft’s Emerging Business Team titled: Blogging has gone commercial - where are the individual voices?
