None of this would have happened without your enthusiastic post about MagCloud. So I just wanted to thank you and let you know the impact your newsletters have.
Like most folks these days, I find information, inspiration and ideas coming at me from more places than I can track, and with velocity that amazes me. There is so much good stuff, I do not have time to review or archive all of it.
Nevertheless, sometimes a source so inspirational comes along and I am compelled to post about it right away. Such is the case with MagCloud.
When I saw what it does and conjured its possibilities for visual artists, I immediately wrote this post: Publish Your Own Fine Art Magazine with MagCloud. I heard from many artists who also could see how they could use it in their art marketing efforts.
Linda Joyce Ott is an artist inspired by the post. Recently, she wrote to thank me for publishing the piece and to share how it helped boost her art career. With her kind permission to publish, here is her email with exciting news:
I had just signed up to receive your e-newsletter when I received the one about MagCloud. As an artist and photographer, it seemed like an ideal method for me to present my work in a
portfolio format. I liked that it was Hewlett-Packard, a reputable name, and
the fact that they would send me a proof at no cost, except postage. Anyways, I
checked it out and I’ve recently published my first issue Auto Parts! You can see it at http://lindajoyceott.magcloud.com
As well, I’ve lined up a gallery and will be exhibiting 15 of the photos featured in the e-publication during June at the Artword Gallery in Hamilton, Ontario. None of this would have happened without your enthusiastic post about MagCloud. So I just wanted to thank you and
let you know the impact your newsletters have.
