What i need to do for my online presence

  • write a philosophical statement
  • take photos of my art images
  • update my cv
  • compile a list of website and artists etc i like and can link to

Presence Project- 3 ways to develope an online presence

  1. Google Pages (website) - a free site through google to create your own website
  2. Wordpress (blogging) - free site to create your own blog
  3. The Big Picture (website)- a website where you can create your own profile and even sell your own work. Also there are job vanacies in the creative sector.
I would like to use a website because the format is really relevant for my online presence- with all the pages easily accessable- compared to a blog which is a very long list of information, however i have never made one before and it may be beyond me at this stage.
