This is such a sophisticated web site, yet still very user friendly. I don't know much at all about web design or HTML...just enough to hunt and peck till I get it. I've gotten comfy with etsy, eBay and blogspot over the years, so that's all transferable in the steep learning curve and gives me the courage, at least, to believe that I'll eventually figure something out after I bang head against the wall enough times.
I'm really enjoying the experience of building my little piece of EBSQ as well as the very helpful and supportive, collaborative community. Not to mention the huge collection of inspiring art at my disposal for inspiration, grouped by medium, etc. I like to peruse all of the eZine archives, too.
AND I CAN'T TELL YOU HOW MUCH I HEART THE LIVE STUDIOS! I've bookmarked two already and refer to them often. I can't wait to start making the mosaic jewelry mirrors (a la Dorothy Edwards) and now have the courage, and desire, to do some collage/assemblage work with new materials I don't normally experiment with.
Why on earth I didn't get over here years ago is still a mystery to me.
And the membership fees are incredibly low considering the professional quality, functions and value of the site as a whole, but also as marketing tools for the individual artist.
Happy Rant over! (Feel free to use it as a testimonial somewhere!)
