CultureGrrl’s Novel Idea: Paid Journalism, for a Change

Where am I going? Where have I been? (This is a clue.)

I’m taking my own advice, for the time being, shifting my attention towards remunerated mainstream media work. Having rocked with Rocco, I’m headed out tomorrow on a week-long trip, the first part of which involves another paid assignment. And I’ve got another one lined up after that.

Therefore, I won’t be covering for you this month’s round of Impressionist, modern and contemporary auctions in New York, which, judging from the lack of excitement they seem to be generating, may be just as well.

By tomorrow afternoon, I’ll be approximately 1,200 miles from Sotheby’s and Christie’s. (No, I am NOT going to Peoria, where Landesman will do penance on Friday!)

That’s not to say, art-lings, that I’ll be away from the computer. I may (or may not) blog and/or tweet sporadically. We’ll see how it goes.

In the meantime, if you want to encourage me to resume posting when I return, you know what to do. After the brief spurt (scroll down) of support elicited by yet another of my tin-cup rattlings, there’s been but one new click on my “Donate” button. My warm thanks do go out to CultureGrrl Donor 84 from the borough that I just reported from, Brooklyn.

I’m also thankful for that ad in my righthand column. There’s room for more. (They rotate vertically, so that each one gets a chance to be on top.)

A viable business model still eludes me, but that doesn’t stop me from trying!
