The Trading Post
08.12.18. Now that the Trading Post has been operating for exactly a month, we'll be making some changes in response to some problems that have arisen since it's introductions. Comments can no longer be edited after a certain amount of time, so we ask that you post ONE strudel per comment, so that you can hide the comments after it has been traded off. Posting multiple in the same comment causes confusion if you cannot hide just one strudel in particular. ALSO if your strudel is not on the masterlist, please post to the Can't find your strudel? entry on the StrudelCupboard (https://www.deviantart.com/strudelcupboard) to help us find any missing babies! We're super quick about updating!

Most of your probably don't know (who gives a darn about  the links under my ID, right?), but I've had a tumblr blog for some time now, where I post just about everything - sketches, finished drawings, food, life etc, and will probably post more stuff.
I've been liking it better than blogspot, because it's easier to update and it looks prettier (credits for the tabs with date, notes and permalink goes to loish, and thanks Andy who helped me with the layout code).
You can leave comments even if you don't have a tumbrl account - just click on "permalink" and leave a comment there.

Also, don't forget you can ask me question by clicking on "donut box" (gotta love vmbui's noodle box. Go visit her gallery!).


Now about Lockerz.com! I need only more 6 people to join to get more points, so please, send me a note if you're interested! Go here for more details luisarafidi.deviantart.com/jou…

It's good in the beginning but gets horribly boring after some weeks. To get the prizes you have to save up lots of points, but you only get 2 points every time you watch a video or answer the question of the day. That is, to get, like, an iPad, it'd probably take you 1 year to save up all the required points. I haven't been to Lockerz for quite some time, mainly because I have no time. But I can send you an invitation in case you want to try.

I remember one person told me to get Tumblr and I forgot to check that site out. Haha! I just made a account there to check things out and I like the fact that the image in the blog of some themes are much wider without gettin' cut off. But, I'm still gonna stick with BlogSpot, 'cause I'd known few admiring artists post their arts there for a long time and I want to be like them. Haha! Heck, they even have that DA gadget, which is pretty awesome! =o

I'ma go ahead and subscribe both your BlogSpot and Tumblr to my Google Reader, so that I will know when you post new things. =)

I'm really liking tumblr, it's more fun than blogspot, in my opinion =P And easier to update. I'm posting about everything there, so I don't know if I should keep my sketchblog :\ Thanks for following me! How does this google reader thing work?

Haha, it's your decision to keep both blog or not. To me, I like to keep one thing of each thing. Like SheezyArt and DeviantArt, for example. It was hard for me to check both art community sites everyday. So, I ditched SA and stick with DA.

Google Reader is kinda like DA's 'journal update message' thing. You can follow sites that support RSS. So, if you go to sites and see those RSS button, click on it, and you'll start following them to get update notice. This way, you won't have to waste time going to every site you go to everyday to see they updated or not. =)

Since I post just about everything on my tumblr blog, I don't know what I could post on my sketchblog xD

Oh, and how did you find the RSS button on my blog?
