Too Much Energy

Journal Entry: Sat Jul 3, 2010, 8:15 AM



I tried an experiment with DA the past few weeks and noticed that when I gave points and spent nearly every waking hour on DA more and more people visited my page. In fact it was hovering between 80 - 120 views a day and got to 158 views one time. When I changed the rules to giving points and spent less time on DA my views have dropped to about 20 a day.

So I have concluded that for most DA artist, my work can not stand on its own in bringing people to my page. And since I do not have the time nor the energy to waste on DA for the hours required to satisfy my ego, I am cutting back and being content with those 20 or less people that do visit my page.

Hope you are all enjoying your summer as much as I am. Soon I will be heading to Montana to shoot a wedding. That should be interesting.

There is a button that says "Statistics" when you mouse over it near the top of the page. :)

Yes, for most of us. Others tend to have everything fall in their lap for no apparent reason. :)
