Who here reads journals? by Caleb_Lloyd

Just curious. Plenty of times I look around at artist's profiles, and not sure who all to respond to or comment on.

Would totally like to meet folks on Weasyl, but it all seems so silent.

Who here reads journals?

    I do, sometimes. Depends on the subject :P

    • Link

      They do generally go along the same lines of Commissions, Patreon, or some general update about being terrible at posting regularly

      People should write about more interesting things don't you think?

      • Link

        Itd be nice, but I guess some people just dont know what to write about.

        Either that or theyre just concerned with selling things.

  • Link

    I read them sometimes, I just rarely ever comment on them.

    • Link

      I'm kinda wondering how to increase the comment ratio per journal.
      As you can imagine, folks don't post journals for no responses, but no responses don't encourage further journaling.

      So I'm wondering how to break the cycle.

      • Link

        Maybe ask the reader a question, like you did with this one. That seems to be more engaging.

  • Link

    I read 'em.

    • Link

      Nice! Do you usually look for anything particular on them, or just read whatevers posted?

      • Link

        I tend to read whatever is posted, usually a quick skim. If it catches my interest I'll read more in-depth. When I actively go looking for journals it is usually to look for commission information.

  • Link

    I do. I really like reading journals since I can actually browse through everyone's and find random stuff to rummage. I'll comment on ones that I find interesting.

    I understand about not being sure about who to comment to. Sometimes I'm never sure if people are just Ghosting on here or actually here.

    • Link

      Aye, especially with the recent popularity of the PostyBird program.
      Suppose if one was to want to guarantee non-ghosts, they'd hop to the forums.

      • Link

        I just check if the person is favoriting artwork if I worry they are a ghost. However, if something's still interesting, I will comment anyways to show them that there is people around. Just... gotta put a little effort into the community themselves, too.....

        Postybirb has definitely helped out lots in the art community overall. I'm glad it exists.

    Been reading and trying to comment more on journals and submissions, though find the journals that have the biggest response are ones asking for opinions on a particular topic or idea (besides free giveaways, but that is not a fair comparison :P )

  • Link

    raises my hand
    Me when remember to visit here

  • Link

    I like to read journals every now and then. However, I've purposely avoided journals about "this place is dead I'm leaving" or "oops I forgot this place lawl", "buy my commissions", "gimme money here", "gimme money there", yada yada, y'know, the generic types. Very seldom do I find anything to respond with, though... So I guess it's a moot point, but here I am!

  • Link

    Depends on the title. Then again, seeing new notifications on here is somewhat of an event so I at least get curious.

  • Link

    I do. But I dont have much to say, like the person above

  • Link

    Sometimes do.

    • Link

      Does a recognizable name or an interesting topic draw you in more?
      Probably both I'm guessing.

  • Link

    I do, hello.

    • Link

      Greetings! What would you think of weekly journal posts?

      • Link

        Probably too often unless you've really got a lot going on you wanna talk about!

  • Link

    If the title is interesting.

  • Link

    I read journals sometimes! A descriptive subject line helps a lot.

  • Link

    Depends on the artist and how well I know them.

  • Link

    I read 'em! It's not like my inbox gets flooded here, haha. A lot of other people seem to do their man communication through other sites though.

  • Link

    a lot of what others have said here about the subject of the journal and such

  • Link

    Weasyl isn't a site I visit very often. Mainly keep this account in case people jump ship permanently from other sites.
