Pittsburgh Art Blog: 4 Years. Now What?


After 4 years of promoting Pittsburgh art events on a volunteer basis I'm considering what direction to take (if any) with the blog. The majority of the hits still come from search engine related traffic (as opposed to direct vistits/referring links) and after 4 years I'm wondering if it's worth the effort. Any input would be greatly appreciated.

The Pittsburgh Art Blog

The Pittsburgh Art Blog features selected pittsburgh artists and upcoming exhibits with photos from the artists and galleries. since the major press outlets do not go beyond a directory listing of exhibits, blogs are needed to promote pittsburgh artists and their work. the blog also calls attention to the inferiority complex of pittsburgh art and how it's perpetuated by the major players in town. Started on August 20,2007. pittsburgh area galleries and art venues are listed at the sister site www.PghGalleries.com.

the blog and website are volunteer projects from fine art photographer and pittsburgh artist advocate rick byerly.
