How to Become Successful on deviantART
How to Become Successful on deviantART!
After studying other deviants and their submissions, I have compiled a short article on how to become successful on deviantART. Everything you need to know to become a success is listed in this deviation.
(NOTE: If you find any of these steps unorthodox or unusual...don't do 'em!)
The Three "Gets" of deviantART!
Step 1: Get Friends
This is a no brainer, and also the most important rule on any artwork/social networking site! You aren't going to get famous as a nobody. You need some friends to help get you started.
Step 2: Get Ideas
Passion is what motivates you to create, to draw, to write, to do anything and everything on dA. It is important to have passion...and what better way to do that than get ideas from others or from that creative mass in your head you call your brain! Ideas are meant for inspiration. Look at other successful artists (Not necessarily on deviantART) and see their methods, and this will help you with inspiration.

How to Become More Popular
Do you know the times when you put in a lot of effort and time into a deviation; however it does not get the attention that you think it deserves? This is a very common occurrence that deviants experience.  You would like it if people commented on your work, for example, like expressing their opinions and critiques. However you see that there are very few comments for your deviation. Do you wish that you could do something to make your user page more appealing for other deviants to have an incentive to view your art? This guide might be able to help you by informing you of some simple tips and techniques. And hopefully these tips and techniques can give deviants more of an incentive to view and comment on your art, and possibly watch you also.
1. Subscription
If you have some spare money it is recommendable to purchase the subscription service from DeviantArt. A subscription allows for a much larger freedom of activities for your user page. You can make fun polls, more

Dear deviantWRITERS...
Dear deviantWRITERS, allow me to offer you some advice. While I realize that you may not want that advice at all, I will cheerfully ignore that, because I really think dA's literature community could use a bit of setting straight.
The reason writers like you and me are on deviantART at all is because we want people to read our work. No one would argue with that. So the way you do things should help get people to read your writing, not flee screaming.
That being said, the preview image that dA gives each literature deviation is your best friend. It gives you about 110 characters of text to impress anyone who might be randomly browsing through lit deviations--to catch their eye and make them want to read more. So! Here's a few tips.
Before that, though: I am not saying that every reader on dA agrees with the suggestions I present here. These are things that I think are important, and that I recommend. This is conceited, maybe, but I believe that good readers would agree wit
