his journal is, surprisingly, about art, features, contests and in general nothing related to jam/jelly.
So life ended up throwing me a few curve balls (yes i know i said balls...) so my activity here slowed down. But things are looking a lot better so i'm setting down some plans for the near future and letting everyone know what is going to be happening with little old me.
The Monthly Premium Give-away project
will end this month on the 15th, in the end will have given away 11 premium memberships through the project (couldn't do one month due to to me hosting a very large contest). I am not entirely sure if i will be doing the project again next year, if I manage to get a job then I will probably do so, but it is entirely dependent on me finding employment. It was fun to do, and I'm glad so many people participated.
Feature This!! is a feature journal that I started a little while ago and I had to stop it due to life getting hectic, but i intend to resume posting. There will be changes on how i run it, for example I will probably only be featuring 1-2 artists per feature and there will be times where I might do a mass feature and there will also be interviews. I want to make it a little more professional and put it on a schedule of some sort. I will keep everyone informed.
Is undergoing some changes, we are trying out a new voting system to see if we can try manage submissions easier. ~AF-studios
still hasn't responded to any of my messages about transferring ownership though so I'm still a bit stuffed when it comes to editing admin privileges.
014 will bring a whole bunch of new challenges and opportunities and I cannot wait.
So here is a little peek into what i am planning for next year.
Busy BEES! is a project where every single day i favourite 1 piece of artwork and it may also be part of something bigger, who knows? (Well i know but you get the point)
Feature This!! As mentioned before Feature this will be improved! and made into a more professional document, but it may also make it's way outside of Deviantart! How? You may ask. I have no idea.... something to do with Wordpress or Blogger..... I'm not sure how this stuff works, I'm just Oprah, not a genius.
The Prize Stash and Community Collection Are going to be undergoing a whole bunch of changes so that they actually work well, as they did not do well this year. So expect to see revamped versions of these projects next year
Devmeet Melbourne AU: So I will be straight forward about this, i'm going to try and organise a devmeet in Melbourne Australia, not much else i can tell you since this is only an idea, would like to make it something that happens at least once a year.
Contests and Design Challenges are something that i believe bring the community together, so i have plans to do quite a few in 2014. Contests have prizes whilst design challenges are done for fun and for the publicity as winners get featured in various journals. Hopefully everything goes well so these can happen often.
are something that I used to provide on my old account, as well as on this account, however I pretty much completely stopped producing stock and I feel like I am ready to start making useful stock images again. 2014 will hopefully bring a bunch of stock images
