You Make The Call!

Okay, I've come to a sort of crossroads here at the art blog, and I'm asking you, my faithful audience I know is out there (thank you, Google Analytics!) what I should do.

I started this blog with the idea of putting up my newest work while it was still fresh and on my mind, and I hoped it would inspire me to work on more new stuff, knowing I had a place to put it immediately upon completing it.

But over time, the three-new-pieces-a-week schedule I've tried to maintain (Thursdays being Time Out New York day, and Friday being "From The Vault" day) has sort of turned into the tail that wags the dog--I've been finding myself not having time to work on bigger, more ambitious pieces so I could get to smaller stuff, so I had something to post here when Monday came around.

Which is kind of crazy, because, in the end, it means the blog will start (if it hasn't already) reducing the overall quality of my work, just in attempt to have new content.

So...if you look to your right, you'll see a poll I put up, where I'm asking you--yes, you!--what you'd like to see here on the blog: only post on days I have something new to show, or fill those days with more stuff From The Vault.

I have over 1,400 pieces in my back catalog, only a few hundred of which are on permanent display on namtab.com, so I have more than enough to fill the blog on days I don't have anything new to show off.

But I'm curious to see what all of you think, so please vote and let me know!

I say post when you can. If you have nothing new to show, don't worry about it. Personally, I'd rather have you post your natural progression of work than falling slave to yet another client (even if it is a blog).

So, post new stuff when you can, old stuff when you want, and relax. It's all good and it's just fun to see your work.

Now, if you have any ideas for my blog (other than, POST MORE!!!) I'm all ears!
