I’ve been putting a lot of time and energy lately into using DeviantArt – mostly because I have never really found a viable alternative that works for me (And trust me, I’ve tried a few)
But over the past couple of weeks or months, I’ve really not been feeling the same enthusiasm for the site as I used too. And between the plethora of idiots and assholes I have encountered on the website, I am really not sure if my future lies there either.
It’s not all been doom and gloom, I have had a lot of good, positive experiences come from it as well; but I can’t deny that I’m just not ‘feeling it’ anymore – I log in with this overwhelming sense of dread and above that a general apathy about it all.
What keeps me going back on there is the fact that I have Premium membership for the next 15 months, but for the most part, I don’t know I feel pretty lacklustre about that place. Maybe my more recent experiences are putting me off more than I care to admit.
While writing this entry, I remembered something I read in a certain someones biography – that I will keep to myself for fear of being labelled the same as and hounded further – but they said that there is a ‘thing’ with younger generations. “They can’t just do something, they need to be seen to be doing something.” This is why I stopped posting on my photography blog and just keep the photography side of me to myself. I still take photographs, I just don’t need to ram them down peoples throats every day. Maybe I am getting the same feeling about artwork and drawing. I’ll keep posting them on here when I remember, but I don’t know if I need to have the whole online gallery thing being a constant anymore. Especially not after the recent treatment I have ran into on dA.
