I went to see the movie Julie & Julia last night. It was a "laugh out loud" kind of movie. It was also a great movie for foodies and bloggers alike. I am both. I was very intrigued as a new blogger to watch Julie continue to blog even though she wasn't getting any feedback and had no idea if anyone was reading her blog. She eventually started getting reader comments and feedback that fueled her to keep on cooking and blogging. Even though I have analytics set up for this blog it only tells me how many people are coming and not "who" is coming. I started blogging with a couple of audiences in mind. I wanted to blog to showcase our works in progress and recently completed projects to potential clients. I also wanted to offer some advice and tips to people who wanted to try do it yourself projects. I have discovered a third audience as I have proceeded through the months. This audience is fellow faux artists. I find myself drawn to other artist's blogs for inspiration, to learn the newest techniques and frankly for a sense of community. Imagine my surprise when I was reading my favorite "faux blog", Fauxology, and discovered they had put up a link to my blog. I had a big smile on my face from ear to ear. I felt like we had arrived in the cyber world of faux.
I want to make this post a reference point for blogs by faux artisans around the web. I have started a small list below. Leave me a comment or send me an e-mail and I will add your blog to our list. And by all means, if you see an article or a picture on a blog that you think is cool, leave a comment. As I am sure you are aware artists thrive on praise. Give a little, get a little, that's all I'm saying. It's tough out there, let's stick together and support each other.
