Today, Get Visual in its present form is one year old.
It was born in December 2008 at The Daily Gazette, but got pushed out of the nest soon after and began to fly on Blogger on Jan. 19, 2008. Since then, the blog has been visited over 16,000 times, and has been cited in all sorts of places both known and unknown.
A recent Google search turned up all sorts of surprising flotsam, including a mention in the newsletter of the Woman's Club of Albany, a misquotation on a sign in the window of a clothing store in Troy (and subsequent comment storm on All Over Albany), and nice plugs on Nippertown.com and the Times Union's arts blog. Who knew?
It's been quite a year, and looks to be quite a bit more of the same in the year to come.
Thanks to all of you for reading, commenting, quoting, misquoting, etc. Please do keep it up.
And, especially, please remember to support your local artists in any way you can.
