Most Active Readers on Booooooom

creativeblock

 

This is a special message for the Booooooom readers out there who really make running this site a lot of fun. These people regularly post encouraging comments to artists and make an extra effort to engage with each other.  Each month there are literally hundreds of thousands of people lurking around on this site anonymously, which is great, but I created this site to get to know people.

I reached out to Chronicle Books with the idea to reward our most active commenters, and they happily allowed me pick out a book from their catalog to send as a gift.

 

booooooom top comments readers

 

The 18 readers listed above have left the most comments since we switched to our new commenting system. Thank you so much for helping me create a real community here. Each one of you will receive a copy of Danielle Krysa’s new book “Creative Block” when it ships in February.

Danielle runs a site called The Jealous Curator and I chose her book because I’m also working on a project about pushing through creative blocks.

I appreciate it when people get actively involved, and do it and for no other reason than to connect with others. If you have any suggestions for growing the community aspects of Booooooom this next year, please leave a comment or tweet your ideas to me.

Merry Christmas, everyone!

-Jeff

    It’s waaaay flattering to get any appreciation at all for something I actively look forward to doing! I’m still trying to figure out who I am as an artist (On top of all the frustrations an art career can bring anyways) and your site is easily my favorite place to go to get re-inspired. So, in more than one way now, I’m extremely grateful for the work you’ve poured into this site. So thank you!!!

    P.S. I’m still guilty of lurking most the time, but I expect that will change now. Not out of obligation, but to help play a small part in keeping a great thing going.

    Thanks Jeff!
