Simplistic Art is now a year old blog baby

One year ago today, I started this blog not really sure if I had the time (with the family and day-job trumping most other proclivities) to do enough justice to serving some of my original goals that I had listed out here...

Original intents included clarifying thoughts about society, art and neurology (yes, it is a strange combination – but I seemed to like it). Of course, catching up with neurology fell by the wayside as I found out I could not devote time to both art and neurology and have normal sleep cycles. Halfway through the blogging endeavor (about six months back), I decided to concentrate more on art, its effects on society and my paintings. Seems like focusing was the right thing to do...

Some months when the id is particularly strong, I manage to get a larger number of posts than usual. Sometimes, comments are good indicators of readers who are interested - of course, I do not have much of a following that way if comments were the only judge - they seem few and far between, but if unique visits (readers who lurk around the blogosphere) register as a measurement on the interest barometer, then an average of about 1250 visits every month is a good reason to keep publishing. I hope to continue more in the same vein. Thanks for coming back and checking on this blog every once in a while. The occasional comments are a great heart warmer.
Thank you.

Congrats on a prolific year! Don't let the comments bother you... there are probably a lot of readers like me that enjoy your posts and love your paintings but don't leave comments when we catch up with your posts.
