Hey all, sorry that things have been
dead around #Marrilanders
here. It's been a busy couple of months around the site and on YouTube, so I unfortunately have not had much time for deviantART lately, aside from checking through Marriland-related drawings every now and then.
While things are surely going to get busy as X & Y are released on October 12th, I do want to make an effort to be more active around dA and #Marrilanders
until then, to get things running around here again.
In the past, one of the things that held me back was wanting to comment and fave every single piece of fanart submitted, so when I didn't have the time to go through the backlog of art submitted (or just posted to dA outside of #Marrilanders
), rather than just accepting things, I'd get stressed and leave things there. Yeah, not all that productive!
I think, though, that it'd be better to just accept things as they come so they at least get some exposure. I genuinely do try to make as much of an effort as possible to leave an actual comment and a deserved fave on every piece of fanart, but with hundreds and hundreds of pieces of fanart (and fanlit) submitted, it just might not be possible anymore. Still, I will try my best to keep up, but I personally just have to come to grips with the fact that it might not happen.
Please, please please pleeeeaaasse, don't take offense if I don't comment/fave on something, or if I just fave it! If I just
fave something without a comment, it means I am busy, on the go, and don't want to forget about the drawing or give it zero recognition, but I really do prefer leaving both a fave and a comment, as well as seeing to having it in the group here.
That being said, during this next month, I would like to start having Sunday
as the day where I get caught up on dA. I think that picking a date and sticking to it will just help keep from having a massive backlog, which is what usually happens. I'll also try to be around the #MarrilandChat
whenever I'm available on Sunday.
I do apologize for letting things go in the past, but during these past few months, I really have realized how much I enjoy the community around dA. We've got a nice group going on here that all share a common interest, so I will try to do a better job of giving back to this wonderful community.
