How are you all doing? I know I've been rather quiet, in general I'm actually kinda busy offline and not really around all that much.
I have some new art tho I will eventually get around to posting so..stay tuned if you are interested!
Anyhoo, now that I have your attention, I'm gonna reach out to everyone on here as well. I recently reached out to people on Tumblr in THIS post here: calicoskatts.tumblr.com/post/1…
, looking for feedback about...feedback.
Basically I'm looking for people to let me know what some of thier frustrations are regarding feedback, or lack of feedback, or in general what irritates you - is it lack of comments, lack views, etc. etc. For example, many people have given me feedback how for example, on Tumblr, they get many likes but no reblogs (for anyone who is familiar with Tumblr, reblogs are like, pretty much what you need to get your art out there), but also people have said they feel unmotivated to keep going because it seems people aren't interested, etc.
So I'm interested to hear what some of your guys' feedback frustrations are. This isn't necessarily geared towards DA or Tumblr or whatever, I've had many people tell me their feelings about sites like Archive of Our Own (AO3 as it's more commonly known.) and things like that. I'm not just talking about writing or art in general - also any sort of content you guys create like needlework, this or that. Whatever!
BUT I'm also interested in hearing about some positive things too - where you think the best place to post your content is, what motivates you, maybe advice for others...
Basically as stated in the post, I'm working on a post to sort of gather some of the frustrations and try and, ultimately, help us as creators. Because honestly, I am seeing more and more artists (myself included) getting frustrated, feeling like they suck, etc, etc. I think maybe if we can come together and figure out what some of the big issues are, maybe we can help each other!
So! Any thoughts? Feelings? Opinions? Feel free to comment on this, or just send me a private message!
