My friend, and one of NYC’s best art bloggers, Paddy Johnson is holding an end of year fundraiser to raise money to keep her blog (Art Fag City) going for another year.
“… we’ve all seen what happens to blogs when their focus changes to traffic, and the results aren’t good. Gawker’s music blog Idolator released Maura Johnson earlier this year, one of the best critics working today, in exchange for a couple writers who would more willingly focus on Kanye West and Britney Spears. Idolator’s traffic went up, sure, but where’s its substance? I don’t need that kind of money to stay afloat, I just have to eat. Your support helps me do this.”
