I'm a little surprised how many people are shy to talk to you. You're one of the most talkative artists to their watchers!

I am a bit surprised too, so that's why I want to start hosting chats and streams more. :'D I want my watchers and supporters to know I appreciate them and do care. So hopefully those things will help.

I think there's a certain point with the number of watchers you have that you then are considered "popular" and are "hard to talk to" since most of those people don't really talk to anyone outside their small group of friends on DA. It's kinda sad that, that's what it's become and people are shy to talk to artists because of it. Of course there are the naturally shy but hopefully offering all those options will bring some more people out~

While I understand it, it's not really... fair or nice to assume I or anyone is like that. :l They don't know me. XD

I completely agree. It's an unfortunate stereotype but it happens a lot. You do a really good job though of trying to reach out to people in general though even before this big push for more streams and the new chats. Out of a lot of artists I've watched, you're one of the easier ones to talk to~

No no, talking is actually my weakness, as I am quite shy.

Aha, being shy, that's an interesting topic. A stranger I met on the local buses in Florida once told me something interesting about shyness. Mind you I tell this not to seem mean. XD Just repeating what I heard and it did help me a bit.

He said that being shy is selfish to a degree. In shyness, and i know, I've been uber shy in my life, especially when I was younger, shy people are so worried about themselves. They worry about how other see them, or what others think about them, etc. It's all about them and your feelings and your thoughts, etc.

We talked a lot more about our own experiences, but that was the main points he made. I think it's a bit harsh to say that being shy is selfish, but if you think about it, it makes sense. It has helped me WANT to be more open. I know people WANT to talk to me and get to know me. A lot of people here are shy too, and WANT to feel involved and welcomed. This is why I try to be open to my watchers about life and just in general, especially with helping them when I can.

Make sense?

Yes makes sense, but I can't agree with seeing shyness as selfish everytime you see a shy person. People are shy for many reasons, plus I actually don't care at all what others think about me, that's their problem, not mine. I am shy in a different way, when I interact with others I always wonder if anything I say or do will interest the ones I'm with, this is not for myself but for them, I can even do silly things that in theory downgrades my sight in the eyes of others, but I don't care as long as they are having fun and nice time, but I never know what to do or what to say to keep others entertained. And thus I became shy. I don't know how to explain it. As for being open minded, I am, I can with anyone about everything, the problem here goes as mentioned above, I am not a good start talker, and I don't know what to tell about me, if someone 'takes over' the talk I am talking like possesed because I know what that person wants to talk about, what interests them.

I would want to go, but with my work schedule I'd probably miss it. It's great you're doing it though! I love seeing more popular artist trying to get to know their fan base n_n
