Thank you so much to have taken the time to answer my little question. I wasn't expecting such generous responses.
All in all, it seems that for most of us, it started as an experiment and a way to show our work or at least to have a place to store it and look at it, instead of using a mirror :)
Then many of us got addicted. The inspiration we find in other blogs is a good fuel for our own creativity. The conversations and support has also became an important part of blogging.
Because I work at home most of the time, I see it a bit like the break around the coffee machine... sometimes a long break. That's when the boss is out! And because I'm a lazy painter and that I don't really have a place to do it, photography has become my principal way of expression. Feeding my blog forces me to do it on a regular basis.
Irene, it was very nice of you to drop by. I'm discovering a new beautiful blog.
Kerry, a simple showcase with no stress, I totally agree!
Line, je suis bien contente d'avoir fait ta connaissance. Tu es la première québécoise dont je suis le blog assidument.
Alexandra, you didn't come back but you answered my question here. - go visit, she has a giveaway!
Anairam, you surely make me see things through a different lens!
Olivia, even if you blogged only once a month I would visit!
Sofamenthol, quel joli nom! et quel joli blog ! Ridicule et mièvre? je ne pense pas. Vraie? fort probablement.
P.K., I think that not everything needs o have a specific purpose... wanderings lead to great discoveries.
Trinsch, if I moved to the country, I probably would view blogging the way you did. Yes, the community is huge, almost infinite!
Par3rgOn, I'm not linking. I understand. I really admire you integrity... and your fabulous art ;)
Laurie, yes, conversations are sometimes hard to maintain. I try hard but sometimes fail...
Aris, your mirror thing cracked me up. Hurray for technology! :) How can we not comment on your wonderful drawings!
Gracia, a post from you is like very good chocolate. One has to savour it for a few days before having a new one.
L'Atelier, thank you :) Obviously, I'm not the good person to talk about online shops. I only know it takes a lot of marketing efforts. But you could give it a try. It doesn't cost too much and can become very rewarding.
Okay, time to go to the market now... in the rain. Have a very good Saturday!
