April 10, 2009 is the day I created my first dA account. That was nearly six years ago! In fact, I am pretty sure I used this website years before I even made an account (I used quizilla before dA lol, and Neopets before that!)
I have seen so many beautiful pieces of art and I have witnessed many people I follow grow up and become professionals. But I am not enchanted by dA like I once was. I used to spend hours looking at photography and various other artworks from users and groups that I followed. I commented when I felt it was due, and sometimes I would even lurk the forums. I was never popular on here nor did I make the effort to befriend many people and I am still not super talented but I always felt as though dA was my home. DeviantArt used to be magical but I can't help to feel like I am simply falling out love with this website. I feel as though DeviantArt is going the way of the myspace, and i just can't deal with that.
I went back to using tumblr but not for art, I will get to that later. I mostly just blog about my life, and I am attempting the whole weight loss thing again so I have been blogging about that too. I've been pretty active there and I am pretty sure tumblr is my official go to to site at the moment. Please send me a note(or at least leave a comment here) if you would like to view my tumblr so that I can give you my url. I would rather not give it out publicly at the moment for reasons of my own. I am also slightly active on facebook and goodreads so let me know if you would like those as well. I will still probably check by dA every once in a while but lets face it I am just not very active here anymore.
Awe, I just looked up neopets because I was still thinking about it, and oh man I would probably still be pretty active on there if it hadn't changed so much (it's probably been a good 10-15 since I last used neopets). The website was first designed for college students for pete's sake but then Viacom bought neopets and it was all down hill from there. Ahhh... memories.
As for the artwork, I haven't been doing much of anything lately. I guess you can say that I am experiencing a bit of an artist's block. I just can't seem to muster up the motivation to do anything creative. I miss my photography so much, I just feel like I never have enough time and when I do I don't know what to photograph. I do in fact have a few photos on the camera that I just have not transferred to the computer though. As for creative writing, I've had no interest. I have been trying to get myself to read more though, which I have been doing.
I'll come back and proofread later, but bye for now.
