Roberta Fallon and Libby Rosof have a new artblog project called visiting artists projects, maybe something for them to showcase their own work more.

Roberta also has another new projects blog called night before xmas; this one lists her name as the sole contributor, but I don't know if she will be able to keep herself from sharing and collaborating for very long. Actually, she used a photo I took of them in her first project!
Artist and frequent artblog participant Bill Gusky has started a blog called Artblog Comments, to keep track of his contributions to various artblog discussions. What a great idea! His most recent post responds to my post from yesterday on the Surface Charge show. The best artblog comment threads (that I'm aware of) are to be found at Artblog.net, Artistic Thoughts, Edward Winkleman, Phantastic, and Thinking About Art.
Comment boards are, for me, maybe THE BEST part of artblogs. I like both the anonymous angry stuff and the smart discussion stuff, and the fact that artists, curators, critics, gallerists, and collectors can all interact - regardless of location or recognition/success level. Edward Winkleman recently had a post asking artists who they are most inspired by and one of the non-anonymous repliers, Mark Creegan, was an artist in Florida who included a link to his website. Great!
(art.blogging.la used to have lively comments but she stopped it, you can read about it's demise here - wish she would turn them back on)
