Entry 134: Tumblr
That's right! I'm now on tumblr! I did it. I'm branching out... a little bit.
I've been so resistant to all the social networking avenues. I did myspace back in the day and it was exciting for a second and then it made me real sad. So I never did that again. Never did facebook. Never did twitter.
My philosophy with my online presence has always been to give the people who know and like me something extra, NOT to try to get people to know and like me. I have not been using the internet for self promotion at all. This blog is not here to raise awareness of me and what I do. It's here for people who become aware of me and want to know more about me and see more of what I do. And believe me, I really don't get a lot of traffic here. I've kept a low profile and I'm totally fine with that. In fact, I've taken comfort in that.
But, as I look into the future, I realize that I will need to change my ways. In the not too distant future I'm going to start a web comic. I'm hoping I can get fans of my Marvel and Dark Horse work to follow me onto that, but if my blog stats are any indication of the interest that that fan base has in my online content, then my web comic wont do so great. So I think I need to branch out a little. Tumblr seems like a nice "little" step. It's really just a different kind of blog. We'll see what good it's worth.
It's actually going to be a load of fun! It will just be art work with almost no talking, and I'll be updating it like everyday! You'll see lots of stuff that wouldn't get put here.
So please check it out. It's called Dustin Weaver Draws His Little Heart Out. If you are on tumblr, please follow me:)
There you go.
Blogged and blogged.
