The new social media site still in Beta testing, Chime.In, has been described as combining the features of Twitter, Reddit voting and Blogging. I just joined. The layout is like Facebook but with newsrooms like Digg recently added. Another thing I noticed when signing up, the list of interests to select from had Art on the list! Most sites lump art in with *lifestyle* or *entertainment.* Does that mean the site is a good one for artists? It is free and another place to promote your website and art events.

Short Story, The Waiting Room– based on my travels in China

I typed my short story, The Waiting Room, from my contributors’ copy of the now defunct print magazine Clamor (with a C), that published it in 2005, along with an illustration. I submitted the story  to Yahoo!

The short story is set in a foreigners waiting room the Beijing train station. Here is the Yahoo! link:

For Subscribers and readers

As founder and solo contributor to this blog, expanding is a constant consideration. Very recently I submitted an application with a large design firm for Pro Bono redesign of this site. Also,upon invitation I started an Affinity group at Idealist.org, where I have also posted a request for an intern and content contributors.

I plan to begin featuring exhibition news from my blog subscribers. All blog subscribers, and those interested in the content of this blog, are welcome to submit news, links, ideas, suggestion or comments to me for consideration–   via email to: mariekazzaz@embarqmail.com

Within the next few days I will begin a weekly update of my Kickstarter project, which will continue for 4 more weeks. The information should be relevant and beneficial to the artist readers of this blog who may also be seeking funding and increased networking opportunities.

If you have benefited from the content of Artist Marketing Resources blog I ask that you also support my Kickstarter project by contributing $1. or more.

Here is the project link–

Best wishes for a productive day!
