I’ve come across a page recently on Facebook called ” terrible art in charity shops”. I’ve been mesmerised by it. I have seen some truly odd images, and some that are not too bad. I’m astounded at what people put on the page. I guess some of the pictures are sold so people can reuse the frames.
After half an hour of scrolling down I had to stop. I think the page is not meant to be unkind, more a gentle humour and hopefully witty remarks.
As someone who had a work put into a charity shop, but then had it bought by someone who really liked it, I guess I can see both sides of the discussion.
Things are changing on planet Mallaband-Brown so you might notice a few tweaks here and there thanks to my friend Mike from @staffsdesign.
I wanted to update my social media and make it easier for people to follow me. Being an artist has made me a lot happier and nows the time to try and make it work.
I didn’t realise amalgamating all my Web pages and sites would be so complicated and I’m so pleased to have had someone to sort everything out.
This is also a test to see whether it posts to my new Facebook page.
You should be able to follow me on the Internet at @mallabandbrown !
I’m having a bit of a reorganisation of my social media. My pages are a bit jumbled up and sometimes a bit confusing. If I’m going to try and make a living as an artist I need to try and organise things.
Hopefully this will all be done with the help of a friend. He’s called Mike and he runs a creative art business.
Basically I’ve got a few pages spread around the Internet but they are all slightly different, so when you look for me on Facebook I have 3 or 4 different pages but I only have one page on Instagram but I post anything and everything there.
I’m going to try using the “my story” section on Instagram and manage it so people will see pages like “inspirations” or “wip” (for work in progress) to Clutter things up less. The idea is to be more interconnected and be able to share more in a coherent way.
Wish me luck. X
Add a link to my Facebook or Instagram pages?
I’ve seen other people do this. It must be quite obvious. But after looking round this site I dont know how.
Someone will read this and laugh and say “Christine you do this, or you do that, simple”.
But I would like to find out how please?
I have friends who haven’t worked out WordPress yet, I managed to do it, but can’t remember how. As you get older you definitely do get more forgetful. I call instructions “destructions”. Both me and my partner often don’t look at instructions, we try and take an educated guess..,which is why the gazebo blew down and when we put a frame tent up once the curtains ended up on the outside…but that’s another story….
So, I am asking you kind people …what, how, where, all those daft questions newbies like me ask.
No doubt your answers will help other newbies too!
