Okay, so I’ve noticed that a few artists recently have been talking about this problem right here, which is getting almost no reblogs compared to the likes. Now, I’m sure some people are tired of hearing stuff like this, but the only reason people keep saying it is because it matters to us. I am beyond happy at how many notes I got on my most recent drawing. That’s amazing. But one thing that isn’t so amazing is the fact that over a half are likes. 81 likes and 9 reblogs. That’s 72 more likes. I find it kind of strange that some artists have to include “reblogs > likes” underneath all their drawings to get what they want. And even then, that doesn’t always happen. They shouldn’t have to do that. It should be common sense that an artist would prefer you to share their art instead of just like it (don’t repost without permission though). If you think something is good enough to like, why don’t you do the artist a favor and reblog it? Even if someone is only creating art for fun, like me, they still want publicity as much as any other artist. I am very, very happy with the amount of followers I get now, but I know that if you guys reblog my art onto your blogs, other people who don’t know who I am will find me and possibly like my art. So next time you like a drawing, why not reblog it too? It takes only a few seconds more, if not, the same amount. Thanks.
Hi! I'm thinking of leaving deviantArt and posting my art on Tumblr instead but I'm not too sure and am actually a little nervous about making the change - so I've been asking around for some second opinions. deviantArt or Tumblr? Or both?
