10-Year Anniversary Tweekly Special

The Art Biz Blog is 10 years old today! Happy anniversary to us.

I couldn’t let this special day fly by without posting something here. So, in honor of the occasion, here’s a special Tweekly edition: my top tweets since the last Tweekly (a long long time ago) – along with a few pics from Art Biz Makeover 2014.

Thank you for being a reader,
