A Chat in the Cold

The number of followers on my art blog The Kellerdoscope is increasing with each post. Today, only minutes after posting this, I got two new followers. Very soon, there will be so many followers that I can release that blog from the coaching it has so far been receiving from The Asifoscope. Up to now, I have reblogged everything I had posted on the Kellerdoscope on The Asifoscope soon after, but I will soon stop doing so soon.
