Hi everyone:

Man.....I should attempt to keep this place updated. I just realized that I'm 10 pageviews away from 100,000 views. Took me over 9 years to do it, bit hey.....that's something right? Perhaps 2 years ago it would have been a bigger deal to me, but now.......meh. I do appreciate all the views and comments and likes and such. In a way, deviantART has pushed me to become a better artist. Being on here has forced me to constantly create, engage with fellow artists, network, and inspire me with TONS of art posted every day. For that, I will always be thankful for being a member of this website.

In my 9 years here, I have seen shifts in who posts, what gets "hot", and who leaves. I have 591 watchers...though I doubt many of them are active on here anymore. I most likely have 10 active ones and the others have gone by the wayside. I sometimes wonder why I'm still here on this site. I guess out of a sense of loyalty? Beats me.

Does it surprise anyone with what is "popular" on here? I know I have posted on here several times about this, but it never ceases to befuddle me as to the whims of the denizen of dA. I see what's "popular" and the "Daily Deviation", and most times I shake my head. Soft-core nude pics? Melted crayons? Pseudoreasonings for DDs? Am I really now the old fart of this site? Maybe I should take a picture of my markers and post them...they might get me pageviews, as opposed to a drawing done with said markers.

You may agree with all of, part of, or none of this rant. Just some observations and braindroppings from an old dAer.
