Hello everyone, I just wanted to make a quick journal and ask for some opinions and feedback from my watchers. I know a majority (if not all) of my watchers started following me because of my tutorial. There is a disproportional amount of response to anything book related in my gallery vs everything else (photography, drawings, etc.) that are added. Going forward is there a preference towards the kind of works you'd like to see? Would you like to see more made books, tutorials (please let me know if there's something you'd like me to share) or are you happy with what I've added to my gallery more recently. Even if you don't have much of an opinion please feel free to say hi in the comments, I'm curious to see how many of my watchers are active.
Showing a variety of subjects is excellent and makes your dA exciting and diverse! I mean, if you're going for more watchers than probably more tutorials or book oriented subjects. But really, you should post are for you and I personally love your photography and art. Have fun with it and try not to stress about watchers and such.
Thank you! I appreciate your feedback. I think the biggest issue for me isn't about gaining followers but having more engagement from the ones I do have. When I upload something I can get as little as .5% to 1% in views, favorites, etc compared to the number of watchers I have. That makes me wonder if I should upload more things that would interest them or if I should really bother uploading something in the first place.
Yeah I have the same issue too? I mean, I get like 2 favorites per upload? And even then it's not even from my watchers. I think the issue is that dA is kind of dead? Like everyone posts on tumblr or instagram or twitter nowadays so dA is like the dark past a lot of people tend to not go to anymore. Like, mega weeaboo stages for people hahaha.
So it's more of a problem of watchers being inactive rather than interaction? But even then people tend to favorite rather than comment because they figure that speaks louder than any comment? Idk man.
Hopefully you get enough feedback from your journal to see what people do want to make an educated decision.
I'm going to continue to post and update here but I'll post more regularly and more wip on tumblr, I think that's a good compromise. Thank you, and good luck you whatever you decide to do in the future as well!
