The Joy Of Every Webmaster

I was very elated when I discovered that my blog ranked 1st in Google for the search phrase "Acrylic Sunset" which features one of my acrylic paintings which was listed on Etsy at the time.

Acrylic Sunset Painting by Nkolika Anyabolu

It is amazing how time flies. Wasn't it just yesterday that I was baking my Christmas cake and roasting a massive turkey? It is as though I closed my eyes and on opening it I'm in February. Dunno if I'm supposed to be happy or sad...I have mixed feelings about this remarkable speed of time.

I am happy that time is moving on quickly so that I can reach my goals faster. Yet again, I am sad because each minute that passes by means I have added another minute to my age and if I had been sleeping...that would be a minute gone without achieving anything tangible. O well I guess there's no way one can eat his cake and have it at the same time. In all things, to God be the glory.

I have been busy these last couple of days finishing up some paintings I started last year and dumped along the line. I wonder if there are other artists that are in the habit of starting a painting then dump it halfway only to pick it back up again after some months? I guess there may be many of us. Anyway I am glad I finally got round to getting back to each and every one of them.

I also did some new paintings too. Kind of got a burst of inspiration (and energy!!!) and I put it to good use. Trying to spend less time on the computer and more time with my sketch pad and brushes. Yet again, one can't avoid sitting in front of the computer all the time. To reach out to the world and have the world reach out to got to spend some time on the computer. Still don't have a camera so it'll take some time before I can get to show you what I've really been up to.

I was pleased to discover my blog has been featured for the month of February on theBlogging Women directory. Being less than 3 months into blogging  with little or no incoming links I must say I think I am doing well. Hopefully over time I would build up my links and have a better exposure.  I guess it all boils down to what the experts say: having a blog is one thing, getting people to visit is another ball game all together. Now I know starting a blog is the easy part. With time I am sure I'll be able to sink my teeth into it all one step at a time.
