A Massive List of Art Blogs, Sans Me

Alexandra Silverthorne posted a link to a long, long list of art blogs at Zeke's Gallery (http://zekesgallery.blogspot.com/2005/09/art-bloggers-of-world.html), and I'm not on there. I've posted comments three times, and they never show up. I don't know if he's deleting me, or if it's my computer, but if someone wants to be nice and post for me on my behalf, that would be terrific. thanks!

Did you email Chris (i.e. Zeke) about it?

actually, he emailed me:

"Howdy!

Apologies and it is nothing personal, but as you describe yourself as an "Erotic Photographer" and as the description of your blog is "I take pictures of people having sex and call it art" my idea and concept of "Art Blogs" does not include what you're doing.

I hope all else is well.

so i'm left to wonder if he doesn't consider what i make to be art, or a blog dedicated to this kind of work to be an art blog. if either is true, he isn't worth my time.

I'm surprised he would say such a thing. He's really a great guy or so I've found in all my dealings with him. Sorry you didn't have the same experience.

neat! thanks!

i'm really not bothered by any of this. yes, i'll admit i'm a bit put off that somehow, what i do couldn't be construed as art, but it's his perogative to think what he thinks. it's all subjective anyway. besides, i don't know him well enough to actually be affected by what he said. as far as i'm concerned, a complete stranger doesn't like my work. big whoop.

but thanks for being supportive!
