They say that self-pity journal entries are a good therapy technique yet... unfortunately... although a tad emotional due to the nature of this music playing in the background of my sleepy room, I have no desire to write on such a topic just yet.
So the main question on my mind is: So what now?
Well first I have to get this profile all fixed up and running again. I have officially unwatched about 70% of the groups I use to follow. Why? Short answer: They failed to meet my expectations. When I have to browse through about 3.000 images in order to find at least 3 worth collecting then something's definitely wrong. As of now by using an extremely high criteria I managed to narrowed down the 10.000 deviations and 600 journal entries stored in my inbox to about 5.000 pictures. Hopefully I'll manage to clean it all up as soon as I have some more spare time.
Which bids the other part of the question: What am I to do with this account?
Obviously I don't spend as much time on dA as I use to. But I've invested too much time and effort into getting everything to look the way I want it, so there's no way in Hell I'm going to do something as drastic as closing it! I still like looking at beautiful artwork! There are many extremely talented artists whose masterpieces I can not help looking at without feeling all warm and happy about. Although it may sound a bit odd saying it like that, I consider keeping contact with such splendid people something crucial as long as I'm online. One never knows what might happen in the long run.
So no, I'm not sure if I'll be using this account for anything more than casual browsing, collecting of artwork that catches my attention and leaving a comment or two, yet I will definitely try to be as helpful to these people as I can. Not saying it'll always be possible, or appreciated for that matter, yet providing assistance can be anything, all from quickly Twitting about it to getting my hands dirty with some writing, design or something else if necessary.
Thus where does all this leave me at? Well, like I already mentioned, I can most definitely be found via Twitter (twitter.com/#!/AlexVSharp)
spreading whatever news I deem worthy of a wider audience. Other than that, I will be writing articles (like I already did so far) on my Desura account (www.desura.com/members/alexvsh…
. If I could I'd add a feed widget to share my stream - can't do that unfortunately. Only other thing I can think of is reposting news I do off-site here after they go live; not so sure how many people would actually like that, or even care for that matter. To each his own I suppose.
And I guess that about covers it.
Should have been sleeping about 5h ago, yet I felt like I needed to write this.
If for nothing else, at least my own soul will sleep better.
Good night and pleasant dreams.
