As most of my old visitors and GBG members already know, I am sending my “Antique Frames” Photoshop brushes set as a gift – individually and personally to all of my past and future buyers who take the time and effort to inform me on how they found me.
This is my way of saying “Thank you!”
Many people ask me: “Why didn’t you set up an automated system? A simple form where people explain how they found you and they get the brush set to their email address automatically? It’s normal. Everybody’s doing it.”
Well, I don’t know. I could have asked my husband to make such a form and he would do it in no time. But, somehow, I believe that Internet is so full with automated systems, it is so automated that people lost touch with each other. And each and every one of us is a person who deserves respect and personal attention. You are not just a visitor, you are a person, with your history, feeling, emotions, interests… and the way I’m running my blog – it is more like a statement.
I know, it is hard to compete with all those big budget fancy-schmancy web sites out there, but I don’t want to compete. I don’t think I should compete. I don’t think that anyone of us should compete for anything in the world. I believe that all of us should just be what we are and that’s all. Individuals who are special just the way we are.
That’s why I did not set up an automated system. That’s why I want to send that brush personally and I think, by doing that I am doing something right. This is no Wall Mart, neither I want it to be. I don’t want you to be just another visitor. I want you to have a name. Just as much as I would respect if you appreciated the fact that the brush set was sent to you personally from the person who made it.
I believe that it a special feeling. And a feeling is what it all comes down to when we make art. Or express ourselves in any form of creativity.
So, what I’m saying is: Don’t let yourselves get automated. Be who you are. Do what you want to do. I know we all heard these kind of words for so many times, but we need to be reminded. So, I am using this opportunity to remind myself too.
