1000 watchers

Journal Entry: Tue Apr 28, 2015, 4:37 AM


Well it finally happened. The big landmark of 1000 watchers! :woohoo: I have been a bit obsessed with hitting this landmark but it didn’t start out like this for me on dA. I think when I got to about 700 watchers I decided 1000 was doable and then it became my quest ever since. It has taken a LONG fucking time. I reached 900 back in November 2014 and the following 100 watchers has taken an eternity. I have had a lot of watcher drop offs in these last few months which has really slowed down the time to target. For every watcher I gained I lost 3 or 4. I think I can put it down to the following –

    1.       The most important reason – I AM A HUGE PAIN IN THE ASS. I annoy people. I know I do. I’m too outspoken. Often vulgar. People watch me and get exposed to this and then fuck off. Good riddance.

    2.       I think dA is suffering. I mean, as a community in general. I think a lot of people step away from dA regularly. Account deactivation is rife and with good reason. I won’t get into this right now! :facepalm:

    3.       Spring cleaning. I know I do it and I call it a friend cull. When you go through your list and unfriend anyone who doesn’t interest you anymore. HOW CAN ANYONE THINK THAT OF ME!? :P

1000 watchers won’t seem like a lot to some deviants. I am mostly thinking of the tits and ass ladies when I say this. For the rest of you who don’t flaunt the junk to get watchers you might be interested in my system to grow watchers. I followed these steps to get to 1000. I am not saying it’s the only way or the right way but it’s the way I did it –

    1.       Post deviations every week. If you don’t post anything then why the fuck would someone watch you? At the moment I post about 8 images once a week. I tried different variations from 1 image per day to 6 images twice a week. The main point is to post something regularly.

    2.       Post your deviations to groups. Join groups and then share your weekly deviations with them. Once you get to a few hundred watchers I start to question the usefulness of groups because often you have more watchers than the groups themselves but at the start it helps to pick up watchers.

    3.       Create a system for thanking. I credit this as the best way to grow watchers. I delete all the duplicate favs until you are left with the list of names of people who do not already watch you. THANK EVERY NON-WATCHER for the fav and ask them to watch you. It is tedious. It is time consuming. It will annoy some people because it is obvious it’s a generic message. But ask everyone for a watch just that one time.

    4.       Comment. So many deviants will fav and not comment. I prefer to comment a deviation and if I really like it I will comment AND fav it. You will be amazed the attention you will receive through commenting. Let your personality out (even if it can be fucking hateful like mine) and you will get watchers.

    5.       Watch others. Often if you watch someone they will watch you back. Like for like :nod:

    6.       Get an admin position in a group. This will give you an opportunity for self-promotion with access to more posts or featured folders in the group. Of course your primary reason for being an admin in a group should be to help the group (yeah right).

    7.       Feature others in your journals. This creates a lot of good will and they may watch you for giving them a feature.

Right, well that’s really quite enough about watchers and boring how-to type things. I have a couple of other things I wanted to point out before signing off on this.

First thing is – I got a steam account. My username is Buntcone so if you have steam feel free to add me to your friend list.

Second thing is – I think I might start using the deviantart mobile app a bit more. I take a lot of photos on my phone when I am out and about in the world and they never make it onto deviantart. So I am thinking to make a mobile phone photo gallery and post images through the app of when I am somewhere interesting. It will be a more up to date insight into my life than the posts from the DSLR which are currently 1 year behind the present! :laughing:

Now I am definitely done with this journal. I think. Hmm…yes. Done.
