OGG and building artist websites

>>>OGG and building artist websites

Live in the Northwestern US, particularly in Oregon? Glassist of any description? You probably oughta be in the Oregon Glass Guild, OGG. Nice organization of really nice folk, have interesting meetings and occasional group discounts on cool stuff.

They’re helping me coordinate volunteers for the 2008 Glass Art Society’s international glass conference, GAS, which will be held in Portland, OR. They also set up neat field trips.

Anyway, I’m bringing this up at the moment because my membership dues are, er, due, been thinking about it…and tonight I’m giving a talk about how glass artists can build websites on the cheap (use a blog). Here’s the¬†presentation (careful–it’s a 2MB Flash file) and the handout. (a 193K PDF).

You’re welcome to look it over, and post any comments, questions, etc.

    Thank you so much for posting the blogging info. I’ve been looking for a way around the “normal” website. You’ve done a great job on your blog!

    Hi Cynthia…I am a OCC member on the central oregon coast….Thank you so much for posting your presentation on your blog for all of us who can not make the meeting. I live 100 miles away and to be able to feel (digitally) that I have been present at your talk is awesome and is what the web was and is meant to be. Wouldnt it be wonderful to have all the presentations at the monthly meetings taped and put on Utube. Wishing thinking on my part but I believe it is the future. Again….Thank you…..Rosie the wildwoman
