Vision and Verse Hits 49,000 Pageviews
Dear Gentle Readers,
Over the weekend Vision and Verse, the Place for Art and Authors has surpassed 49,000 Pageviews. I am thrilled. Thank you so much.
When Parker Kaufman and I started this blog on April 15, 2013, we had no idea how it would be received. We were one artist from Texas (he was the vision), and one author from Ohio (me! I was the verse).
We opted for plain white background and one column text down the middle. We wanted our content to be why readers stopped by, not the web design. Our original header was blank and white striped, horizontal for Parker and vertical for me.
We read all the studies that say most blogs don't last a year. But still, we pushed forward to bring you the best of new artists and authors of today, as well as looking back at the old masters of yesterday. We tried to bring you a touch of inspiration and creativity to spark that little flame inside you.
I guess I'll have to be preparing some wing-ding celebration for our second bloggiversary/50,000 LIKES soon. Is there anything in particular you'd like? Free ebooks, free paperback, Amazon gift card are already on the list. What else? Your input is appreciated.
Once again, a sincere thank you. You are appreciated. Have a great week.
