So long, my friends!


Since my energy is limited and since all things end at a time or another, I've decided to abandon (at least for the moment) this blog. Even if there were some favorable comments and some very faithful friends (Thanks a bunch!) there aren't usually more than 12-15 visitors per day. One cannot call this a blatant success...
It is not a totally loss since I made some friends and I had some good times. and I've also practiced my English... I will not delete the blog - so it will be still available for browsing and comment (and from time to time I'll check it and answer if any comments are made...) I will now say "So long, my friends!" and I'll hope you'll still visit me at:Van Gogh and I
As a farewell gift: this Quebec landscape I've painted sometime in September 2005...

Happy new year Danu!
As you might now, we are not home right now, well at least nbot at our normal home, and we have been disconnected from internet till today... we are back now, and one of my first impulse was to come here, to see your last entreis, and well... sad somehow... but of course I understand, being in the same situation of abandonning my Blogger too... Kevin too by the way... Wordpress seems to work much better...
Anyway, I will of course follow you in Wordpress, just, I dont know why, I had a kind of special attirance to this blog. somehow I found here more intimacy in the sense that it looks like a small, beautiful gallery...

A re-happy New Year to you and Kevin, too, miki!
Yes, I was a bit sad but well, 12-15 visitors a day... on Van Gogh & I there are a lot more, sometimes over 100 a day... Hope you'll be soon at home again...Bye for now...

You do fantastic work! Why on earth would you want to abandone your blog. Do you know the ins and outs of attracting people to your blog?

Ion Vincent Danu said...

Thank you for your kind words tor and oled and David... Gives me hope it was not all in vain...

Why I abandoned it? I was (still am) getting 5-7 hits per day...don't know why?

On Van gogh and I on wordpress I get 45-75 per day and even, one time 405! I don't know why, either, since I'm the same guy, I do and write and paint the same stuff... Still not selling much, but then, what's new?

Since my energy level aren't what they were 10-15 years ago, I have to concentrate and to put it were it really counts: in drawing and painting. Fame and wealth will come...maybe...some day...never (usually postmortem; only Picasso and Dali knew to sell themselve for million still kicking...)

David Lobenberg said...

Ion Vincent Danu said...

Thak you very much, david! That will certainly get me more hits.
