In the next few days we will be featuring 3 artists on the home page. Please visit their profile pages and leave lots of lovely messages for them. If you want to be featured then send an email with your profile name (or URL) to the editor. We are hoping to feature 3 new artists every month or so and for those that we do feature, it will be a real boost to the visitors to your profile pages.
If you are reading this you are reading the new MyArtProfile Blog. To make this blog a lot more interesting we are inviting artists that are registered on MyArtProfile to become contributers. We are looking for stories about the artists that use MyArtProfile and the art on display here and stories about the art world in general. We believe that this can become an exciting blog that will generate PR for MyArtProfile and raise the profile of the site and its users.
If you are interested in contributing to the new blog, or if you have any questions then please use our new contact form to let us know.
Today we’ve gone live with some improvements for MyArtProfile.com - the first of many nice improvements that are planned for the site. The main ones are:
*** New and improved support and contact page. Use this if you want to send us a message, request assistance or enquire about advertising on MyArtProfile.com. You’ll get a ticket so that you can keep track of your enquiry.
*** New and improved site blog. We’re looking for contributers to the MyArtprofile blog - if you would like to write about life on MyArtProfile.com please use the contact form to let us know. More information about the blog will follow soon.
*** New and improved ‘Delete’ public message tool. 1-click and it dissapears. Use with care!
*** New ‘Rename Gallery’ tool. It does what it says on the tin.
We are looking for a new artist to feature on the homepage. Do you want to to be featured? Or do you want to recommend another artist? If so then let us know via our new contact form.

The MyArtProfile Team
MyArtProfile.com is now under new management. But don’t panic! The people that are now responsible for maintaining this site have been involved from the beginning and there are no plans for any major changes or restyling of the site. We know that you love it just the way it is!
We do however intend to provide some new and useful tools, for example the ability to delete public messages with a single click. We are also investigating ways in which you can trade your art here.
Please watch this space for further announcements.
Please review www.internationalartistday.com
Over the last couple of years the Guys over at International Artists Day have started an initative
held each Oct 25th worldwide and they were wondering if our great group of Artists at MyArtProfile might help promote this great idea.
There website says the following:
October 25th every year has been selected as International Artists Day.
This worldwide tribute to artists will honor and bring recognition to the contributions they have made to civilization.
Everyone around the world can do something special on that day to enhance the visual arts: take an artist to lunch, host an exhibition, buy a piece of art, attend a gallery show, visit a studio of your favorite artist.
So, when you have a spare minute take some time to check them out.
Did you know that the more written information you have on your MyArtProfile page, the more likely you are to be picked up by Search Engines (Google, Yahoo etc).
Recently, I have been analising the keyword searches where people have landed on our pages and I have noticed that search engines are picking up on the text left in Biographies, Public Messages and even Heroes where you have added someone famous.
You can increase your chances of being randomly selected by also adding your myartprofile url to your biography page (ie. www.myartprofile.com/sarah).
So dont be shy, tell the world about you, fill out your biographies, etc.
After all, it’s Free!
Since MyArtProfile launched back in February 2007, we have had the pleasure of making some really great friends. We would very much like to involve some of our friends in using their creative talents to design a new Logo and Banner for MyArtProfile.
As a guide, the Logo needs to be square and fit into the same place as it occupies above left of the homepage, plus it will be used as a default image for Artists whom havent uploaded their avartar. It must be universally recognisable and reversible.
The Banner must fit across the top of the homepage in place of the current advertising and include a strap line. You decide!
Please send them in to firstname.lastname@example.org
The creator of the chosen logo/banner will receive Homepage recognition and all designs will be posted to this Gallery for all to enjoy.
MAP is very pleased to involve anyone who wishes to offer their kind assistance.
Final copyright will obviously need to be granted to MAP. So please only send in your designs if you are content with this.

Recently, some of you Guy’s have emailed me regarding difficulties uploading images.
If you have experienced problems, try re-copying your image in Photoshop (or similar image manipulation software).
Then re-try uploading the new image. 99 times out of 100 this works just fine.
