There’s more to life than Google

Categories Blog

Sue Favinger Smith kindly pointed me in the direction of this article by Clint Watson about the importance of not relying too much on your Google ranking. He makes some good points and the idea of diversifying is something I’ll be following up in later articles.

Sue’s blog, the excellently named Ancient Artist, is also worth reading; she writes deeply and honestly about the emotional challenges of trying to develop an art career when you’re over the age of 50.

Sue Favinger Smith: Detail of another Elements Triptych

I am an artist & purveyor of obsessive projects based in Hebden Bridge, England. My work involves the accretion of large numbers of small objects - pins in fabric, knots in string or hundreds of envelopes - to make sculptures that deal with fragility, loss, repetition, obsession and time.

  1. Hi Kristy~

    I am still in shock (good shock) because I came to your blog to see what you were up to and found my Elements piece plus your lovely words. Thank you. I guess I’ll have to be more careful about what I write on Ancient Arrtist; it seems that people other than my daughter are reading it. You’ve set a very high bar with your blog and website.

    Thanks again.

  3. Hi Sue, I’m glad you were pleased and thanks for the kind words about my site.

    It’s easy to think we’re writing in a vacuum, I’m still surprised at the number of visitors I get and how quickly that has happened.
