Ch..ch...ch...changes....

I've pruned down my links to just a very few to make room for my whole blogroll....these are the blogs I visit whenever there is a new post....fortunately, not everyone posts every day and usually of those who do post, I actually read about half and just look at the photos on the rest...
I've limited myself to an hour in the morning, while I'm having my coffee and breakfast and then if I feel like it I check out a few more in the evening after it's dark....right now it's staying pretty light until 9, so I'm not on it much at night....next winter I may have to change the schedule a bit!
I know there are folks who feel it is a waste of work time, but I can only bead so many hours in a day and I consider checking the web as a kind of research as well as inspiration when I need some.
I don't read many magazines any more since the majority of them cover techniques and artwork I've already seen and know well. The web is my source for the new and different and it's well worth the effort for me. Maybe if I lived in a city I'd feel differently, but we're quite a ways from the larger population centers, museums, big library, etc.
So this is my little window to the bigger universe...

Bobbi,
Your schedule sounds much like mine. I could stay on the computer all day, but find I have to limit myself or I get nothing else done.

I've got that song stuck in my mind today! lol

Totally agree...I have to limit myself or I'd never get anything done! I've noticed I've been further away from the computer since the weather has been nice than I normally am in the fall and winter.

I, too, feel honored to be in your blogroll. ;-)

diana, you're an inspiration....in fact, everyone on the list are people I'd love to know in person (a few I'm lucky enough to have met) and whose work I'd love to be able to hold!

I spend a lot of time on the internet too, I find there is much more creativity and inspiration there than in magazines. I often feel really excited to read about what people are doing, how they go round their artistic problems and so on, and it helps going through bad days :o)

I surely agree, helene...and especially during our long wet, grey winters! The web is like a window into sunny places and warm hearts.
