why do you read a blog? 6th year anniversary and THANK YOU

I missed my 6th year anniversary last month (October 3rd to be exact.) Ooops. This anniversary brings a question to my mind. 1626 posts later I wonder, what do you find most important about a blog? Why do you read a blog? Why do you come back? You have so much choice in the ways you spend your time.
I end today's post with a big thank you to all my readers. I really have appreciated your support and encouraging comments/emails for all these years! Thanks for making the time to visit!

Hi Loriann, congratulations on your blog's birthday how amazing it has been going strong all of these years. I like to read a blog that often talks about the painting process such as materials and what it is the artist is trying to discover and achieve in their work to admire the work of the artist is also very important. Blogging is an exciting way of learning and sharing our artist journey with each other.

I enjoy your color sense, the simplicity of the compositions, and the feelings and memories your paintings evoke - thank you.

Love your blog, love your art! Thank you and congratulations. Your art and words are inspiring and as an artist I find 'community' in your posts.

I'm a relative newcomer to your blog and your beautiful work but what keeps me coming back? Well, your work, obviously, but also I like to read a little more than a 140 character update, I like that you share interesting quotes, bits of your process, and that it is a site dedicated to one thing only - you- , but unlike a portfolio site it is updated with new things on a regular basis.

Happy blog birthday !

Happy anniversary, Loriann!

I read your question a few days ago and have been thinking about my answer. What usually makes me look at your blog is the thumbnail of your latest painting. It's a tease of color and mood and design and I have to click it to see how the whole image looks.

I like to read your thoughts on process, your ideas about what you are going for in your work, how you overcome obstacles, and what keeps you inspired to paint. You never disappoint.

Looking forward to more years of blogging ahead! K.
