Hi guys! I'm not usually the type to make a big deal out of pageviews or whatever, but 100,000 is a pretty substantial number, and we passed that point sometime today, so I decided to make a journal about it.
I've been on dA for a good long 9 years I guess. The community has kind of ebbed since other platforms have risen to the spotlight (tumblr, namely) but honestly I still think dA is absolutely one of the best art posting platforms on the internet today. Posting art on tumblr may be easier, sure, but in terms of getting your art seen--and having your art seen by people who are following you for art--dA is still the best. Sometimes I wonder why I still post here (I've been getting fewer comments than ever, and the few comments i *do* get occasionally make me cringe) but rly it's just nice to have an intact, easily searchable archive of most of my art over a span of 9 years.
To those of you following me, wether you've been here from the start or only recently started tagging along, thank you! your support means a lot to me, even if it's just the occasional +fav. I hope you'll stick around to see where me and my art go from here.
anyway i'll shut up now
if anyone's on archive of our own I recently got an account there, so I'm going to start cross-posting to there from the writing blog and tumblr. If you're interested, my username there is magumarashi. there's not much up yet tho
Got some cool art things headed your way, so stay tuned
