I promised myself, I would blog and vlog for 30 days starting Tuesday and somehow I started on Wednesday. Although, I easily failed this task I’m starting over and keeping my promise to blog daily and give a weekly vlog of my daily adventures. I’m forcing myself to be outgoing and sociable. As I stated in my previous blog, this is not my character, but a person I play to appease others. Two things I’m good at is hiding from the world and procrastination. I could teach a class on both. However, the lesson plan would be done last minute and it would be a video lecture, so I wouldn’t have to leave my apartment.
Now, to be a homebody artist is detrimental to your career. You must market yourself, promote and be visible. All and all, people must know you exist. I’m fine with hiding, but I want to create art that the world will see. This means…..I need people to know who I am . People are not going to support you, if they don’t see you supporting yourself or feel a connection to you and your work. I am a hard worker, but I do it alone in the privacy of my own home. I don’t like to ask for help, not become I’m a control freak, but due to the fact that I don’t like to bother people. I understand, being an artist is not the norm and struggling is a huge part of the journal. I am so happy to be doing what I love. I am thankful, everyday that I have a full-time career in what I actually went to school for and I am healthy to perform. Even though I injured something once a month.This marketing thing though. The company is a full package, with me being the bow. I need to display myself as a career women, which means….I need to be seen. So, I’m coming out of my bedroom and introducing myself to all. Hi! I’m RED.
