Hey guys, so until I get an official website up and running, I'm hoping to get that done around May or so. I'll be using Deviant art way more than any other website for multiple reasons.
1. Facebook is crap
No seriously, let me be honest here and say how terribly difficult it is as a newbie to get your name out there and publish your work via facebook. You're lucky, LUCKY, if 1/3 of your audience sees your posts. Which when you think about it, is ridiculous because people like the page to see posts and updates. The only way to get more of your audience to see it, is if you pay for ads or to boost a post. Now I don't know about you but there's nothing that I hate more than scrolling through my facebook newsfeed and seeing a bunch of ads, so I DON'T wont to contribute to that problem.
2. DeviantArt is a stepping stone
Like is said before ultimately I would like to set up my own personal website because I think that it would be a more professional platform to link people to rather than facebook, but until then I want to use DeviantArt as a stepping stone of sorts. I plan to stay on here more often and post at the very least weekly. I'm learning the formatting and layout abilities that DA has to offer and taking note for what I would like to have on my own site.
Thirdly I bought a deviant art premium account as motivation to use this site more and because it was buy one get one free and I split it with a friend, Momo Kurumi Cosplay.
Overall I'm excited to be using DeviantArt more and more as this year progresses!
