Artist Networking Sites – Promote Yourself!!!
In this day and age when millions of average people across the globe are feeling isolated and are reaching out to each other through social networking sites such as MySpace, Facebook and Friendster and other similar sites, there are emerging social networking sites for groups of people based on their professions like musicians, artists, actors and business people as well as social networking sites for groups based on their hobbies. This is a new and rapidly growing phenomena on the internet. Artists need a place to show off their creative talents and see what other artists are up to and to just hang out and chill and chat with other artists and make new contacts and make new friends. There is a new and rapidly growing Artists Networking Site and Online Gallery called My Art Friends on the web and it is similar in many ways to MySpace and Facebook in that you can make your own profile page, add friends, make new friends and contacts with other artists from around the world, upload photos of your self and your artwork, upload videos, upload music, blog, participate in groups, create groups, participate in forums, chat with other members and Post Classified ads. Are you an artist feeling isolated (like a lot of people these days) and want to join a community of people with similar interests and a passion for art? You should join an Artists networking site like and share your art with the world. It’s fun, it’s easy and it’s FREE. You can even use it as your own personal website and link it to other sites you are on. So go ahead, become a part of the new and growing web phenomena – Social Networking Sites. Be like me and join about 10 or 15 different sites as a way to promote your artwork. I was contacted by an Art Consulting Group on one artist networking site and they just sold four of my paintings, so it’s another way to promote and sell your artwork.
