I'm seriously thinking of deactivating my page here at dA. Yes, I've done this a couple of times before and ended up coming back, but for some time now, I've been wondering what the hell I'm doing here. I get virtually no feedback on my work, save for a few loyal and awesome friends I've made here. I get a fair number of faves, but rarely a comment. I just checked my stats and found that I've given 46 comments for every 10 I've received. That's pretty lop-sided. My main reason for being here is to network with other artists, but it seems most others are just here to browse and accumulate faves. I have too many other accounts (Facebook, Model Mayhem, flickr, etc.) and my main site to keep up with. Why should I waste my time here when I get more feedback from those other pages? The more I think about it, the more it just doesn't make sense to stay.
If there's anyone who wants to stay in touch with me, please hit me up on Facebook. I have two accounts there (one personal and another for my photography). Just send me a friend request, along with a message so I know who you are, and I'll add you. Feel free to "Like" my photog page as well, if you wish. I'll throw in the url for my Model Mayhem page, too, just in case any of you are interested.
