Two Years Anniversary :o

Yep, it’s been two years since I set up the “Steve Kidd Art” website!! But before I get on to that here’s an important bit of news regarding this website.

I’ve just moved the hosting of this website to another provider, to avoid missing any updates you may want to subscribe with email

Two Year Anniversary

It was a surprise to me that this website and associated social media gubbins have been going since March 2017.

Prior to that each artwork would only have been viewed by 3-4 people.

Now I see from the website stats that there were over 7,000 views in 2018 and already for 2019 I’m looking at over 8,000 and it’s not even Spring yet!!

It could be fairly daunting that over a thousand Instagram followers instantly see each new drawing I post but oddly I don’t feel any additional pressure that each next artwork has to be better, has to be more-more-more, that it has to be a masterpiece. The reality is that some of the simplest sketches and some that I almost didn’t post have been my most popular.

I’d like to say a heartfelt thank you for looking at my webpage, subscribing, commenting, etc. There are some subscribers which are still with me since my first month amazingly. You are all top people with exquisite taste obviously πŸ™‚

As for this website, statistically here’s the top five posts from the past two years

As with those weird sketches that internet people like the most I can’t begin to guess why these are at the top but there you go… here’s to the next year on the “New and Improved” website.

  1. Hi Steve, I hope you are well! I was going through the same process but I decided that is probably too complicated and costly transfering to self hosted. I hope the whole operation goes well and there are no “disasters” as you said. Looking forward to seeing your new website and project!

  2. Oh best of luck! I would love to hear your reasons for switching. I’ve considered going self hosted myself. Shoot me an email if you want/have time!

  3. Good luck with the move! I hate to see you leave WP but, I understand your reasoning. I’m already subscribed via email so I’ll be looking forward to seeing the new site.
