So I asked people to like my Facebook page and folks came through in fine style: 42 new likes over two days. The traffic it generated on this site has been grand too - some of the highest numbers yet. These aren't HUGE numbers, but they are a nice starting point for me at this stage in my career.
While I realize that creating art is not about popularity (quite the opposite, actually), creating a career making art cannot ignore the importance of visibility and exposure. I truly appreciate the time you took to glance in my little corner of the interwebs. I hope you'll keep looking and tell others.
