Original Impulse Blog

I'm Alyson Stanfield and you probably already know me. I've been writing the Art Biz Blog since November of 2004 and have brought hundreds—if not thousands—of artists to blogging. I switched from a TypePad to WordPress platform in 2009. Like everyone, I struggle with the commitment and the desire to keep my blog relevant to readers. But I have no choice. The benefits of blogging are too great to ignore!
