About This Blog
I started blogging in 2006 on the Blogger platform. Blogger seemed too good to be true: a free service with pretty a much endless capacity to accommodate my posts. From 2006 to early 2016, I used an early version of Blogger to report on art fairs and exhibitions in New York City, Miami, and wherever I traveled. I downloaded photos from a point-and-shoot camera, Photoshopping everything so as to present every artist and exhibition in the best possible light. Blogger was not without its glitches, so my commitment to post came with a good deal of frustration. (A free service means there's no one to call when you have a problem.)
In 2016, I switched to a new, bigger, better Blogger format. I liked being able to show larger images, and I posted regularly until March 2021 when, inexplicably, I was locked out of my own blog. It's still viewable, but I can't get in to update it. And there's no tech support to fix the problem if community advice fails.
What to do? Well, it's clear that a "free" blog platform can come with a very high price when there's a problem, so I decided to switch my operation to Icompendium, a paid website. The technical help is fabulous, and it has been a pleasant surprise to work on a template unfettered with glitches. I will gratefully accept donations, since I'm now paying an annual fee for the blog and spending untold hours migrating material from the old site to this one.
