TEDxOrlando - Sharon Butler - Two Coats of Paint: Lessons Learned in the Blogosphere

Two Coats of Paint - a blog about painting - is produced by Sharon L. Butler:

In 2007, Butler created Two Coats of Paint to share reviews, commentary, news, and background information about painting and related subjects. A member of the Culture Pundits network of art blogs and websites since 2008, Two Coatshas been sponsored by many organizations, including the Museum of Modern Art, The Whitney Museum, the Pulitzer Foundation, the New York Studio School, and The Brooklyn Museum. In March 2010 Two Coats won a Mindshare Award for art blog excellence. To read more about Two Coats' roots and philosophy, click HERE

I discovered her blog a couple of years ago and was delighted to be able to visit such a wonderfully informative web log... any itchy feet tendencies I was having at the time for travel somewhere like New York  to see what was happening in the world of art was soon quelled somewhat by the pleasure of being able to dip into the postings on galleries, artists, reviews and such. So when I discovered the Ted talk on video through twitter earlier tonight I wanted to share it here.

Sharon discusses how the blog has led to increased visibility...

Web.20 tools = power for artists

She makes some great points which I think may be of interest ... well worth a visit... make sure you get the last part of the 12 minute video...the summary points!
