Is there anything I could do to bring up interactions with you guys? I miss being as interactive as I used to be, but it's really hard both to give and to receive comments

(this is like... really darn late but here you go)
im quite dead on dA nowadays but i'd guess some random-subject pools (i've seen some people posting puns and i loved that hehe), journal memes (good old times when i did those), or even art/game livestreams or offering critiques to your followers?

Um, maybe live streams and a discord server sounds good but I've personally never used it before :P

For me personally, groups can be a fun way to interact, but you'd need to find a chill one if you dont want it to be a stress xD

oof this is a big mood,,, I don't know if it's just the difference between two sites but on tumblr I find it much easier to put "comments" down through tags because you're already in the motion of reblogging it and it's right there on your dash and yet on DA half the time i just look at the thumbnails :v

SpitfiresOnIce Featured By Owner Oct 10, 2018  Hobbyist Digital Artist
It's funny you say that,,, I actually find Tumblr one of the hardest websites to interact on but it's because I will almost be guaranteed to never see what other people tag my art as. Once my art got like 500 notes (fan art) and I didn't even notice until months later. It was a time ffff
I guess it's low threshold, it's just so easy to miss out on things there!

nekozy Featured By Owner Oct 10, 2018  Hobbyist Digital Artist
oof yeah that makes sense too, I have mobile notifications turned on and I usually just check the reblogs for any tags but I don't get a lot on a daily basis so, if it was more I can understand that

I'd suggest a Discord server, but I've seen other people doing the same suggestion in comments below and your responses to them. So... I'm not entirely sure, maybe doing more polls with questions that people can interact with you about fun stuffs to you or even to your followers? IDK, my brain is dead today XD

:iconspitfiresonice:
SpitfiresOnIce Featured By Owner Oct 10, 2018  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Discord is also off-site and I'd rather do something on DA itself, plus I don't really want people I don't trust to be able to message me because I'm too tired for conversation through DM almost all the time. So that's not ideal :XD: More polls would be good, though!

Here's an idea: Asking viewers for suggestion about something. Just anything at all. It doesn't have to be real stuff, but don't tell anyone about it. For example, you can make up a situation, then draw a picture about it and ask for suggestions from viewers. Here's one:

Well, today my best friend and I walked home from school. We then bumped into a boy. He was so shy. I could see he liked my friend a lot, but was too scare to talk to her. Finally, he gathered his courage to ask my friend out. But, my friend did not like him, so she started to call him name. To be honest, I think my friend was kind of mean to the boy, but I did not say anything. I also found him kind of cute.

Should I ask him out?

[  ] Yes
[  ] No
[  ] Not sure


You know. Stuff like that.

That example, omg. Very unrelatable, but I do understand what you mean. I did used to make a lot more polls, it would be nice to do it again.

kwikdraw Featured By Owner Oct 11, 2018  Student Writer
Ikr. But, the question is maybe it is very relatable to the viewers? Or, maybe it is simply good gossip. Unless you want to make every post personal, I don't think you should limit yourself to everything relatable. But, that's just my opinion.

SpitfiresOnIce Featured By Owner Oct 11, 2018  Hobbyist Digital Artist
That's fair! I just don't want to make something that's unrelatable to myself, because then I can't exactly start a conversation about it, you know? Nothing is relatable to everyone, but if I wat to interact myself, I'm going to need to find what connects with me ^^

What kind of stuff are you interested in generally, anyway?
Reply
:iconkwikdraw:
kwikdraw Featured By Owner Oct 11, 2018  Student Writer
There are many things. I am interested in what you think and how you feel about certain people and how they interact with others and with you. Like, what makes you happy, excited, sad, when you think about yourself and others. Why do you like art? What do you want to do if you have all the money and time in the world? What do you wish someone to do with their (and your) life? etc. etc.

Perhaps journals/status updates with a certain question/topic. "What is everyone's thoughts on ____ movie" for example. Or like making top ten lists and seeing if your watchers share your opinions? That requires a lot of commenting. I'm not really sure of ways to interact with people that don't require lots of commenting. ^^'
