As my loyal readers have probably noticed, this site is undergoing little changes, metamorphoses, make-up – however you can put it.
These activities are basically inspired by my new ‘more commercial approach’ (read my latest post about it) towards art in general and this blogging in particular. I’ve just become aware that this art-devoted blog has no ‘art’ or ‘blog’ word in its name, and that I mention the subject only vaguely on the ‘mother-page’. Consequently, most of my readers keep ‘bumping’ into this site by an accident, lured by images or ‘names’, catch-phrases (not always art-related) that I’ve used. Well, cannot be otherwise – can it? Who, after all, would associate “Terra Incognita” with ‘art’, ‘art studying’, ‘art reflection’ etc.? And why it took me so long to get it???
I write for people, who would appreciate fully the issues being addressed here. And I need them, their critique and opinions to develop. That’s why I put “ART NEWS” subtitle to the mother “TERRA INCOGNITA” name. The “News” is a powerful catch-word – it belongs to the most popular tags in the WordPress – blog-world (beside LIFE, POLITICS and others), and generally – searching engine-wise. It corresponds well with the design of my page (I chose it among others due to it simple, newspaper-like appeal) and, hopefully, it will motivate me to keep my writing fresh, concise, animated, revealing – just like the good news are.
I’m going also to change my image-header (I intend it to be like a ‘logo’ for my latest artwork, therefore – adequate changes will be adopted). What will not change? – well TERRA INCOGNITA and its main author – Katarzyna Skonieczna will, hopefully, stay the same, in its general policies and the ethos that animates them…
