The #DeviantArtApp represents a push forward, to me. It's been a long time coming, and watching it progress from design to early development to its current iteration has been an incredible journey. I'm excited to see how it grows from here, now that it's in the hands of the community.

Been a long while!

My last real personal journal was February, whoops. Life has been super busy and there's still a ton to do before the year is out, but the back half of the year has been pretty dang productive for me. Or at least November was.

The concert:

On November 9th I saw Perfume live at their very first US performance, which was hugely exciting, as I've been a big fan since 2008 and was more than a little disappointed when they didn't stop in the US on either of their first two world tours. Still, I got in line super early and managed to get to the front of the crowd! I was holding on to the security railing for dear life to make sure I didn't lose my spot at the front, but it worked out pretty well for me. Here's a photo I got of the sign at the Palladium that morning, and the view from my spot right before the show started...

The concert was awesome, and I couldn't have asked for a better first experience seeing them live. There were a lot of people who flew in from Japan to see them, and from what I heard after the show, it was one of their best performances ever. The setlist was full of surprises as far as songs they chose to perform goes, and by the end of the concert just about everyone needed water, but it was totally worth it.

The half-marathon:

On the following weekend, madizzlee and I ran a half-marathon! I mentioned this in my last journal when I brought up fundraising (which, thanks again to everyone who chipped in, I met and exceeded my goal thanks to you all!), but that was before the race itself.

We ran through Disneyland and parts of Orange County, which was a lot of fun...for the first 7 miles, anyway. After that it was a lot less fun. madizzlee is a lot faster than I am, also. But you know what, I finished, and that's what matters. I'm pretty proud of having done it, and it turns out that all 66 of the runners for St. Jude completed the half-marathon in time, so it felt great to have been a part of that.

The writing marathon:

Although it was completely unintentional, I did end up taking part in NaNo this year. I told Exillior a few days before that I was going to try doing a short story each day based on the same main character, so that I was writing but didn't have to commit to doing 50k words.

By the end of day 5, I had 10,000 words, so I just kind of accepted that I was doing it from there, heh. The good news is that I succeeded! I broke 50k on November 28th and spent the last two days of the month writing out the last bit of story. I still have a few more to go before the collection is done, I think, but I'm really pleased at how easygoing it was, for once. This is only the second time I've actually finished NaNo, and the first time involved me writing 15k words in the last day. I don't recommend doing that.

But yeah, November was super productive. Who knew, right?

In response to community feedback, we've made refinements to some of our recently launched features.

To start, we've updated the Activity widget displayed on Profile Pages. Many deviants mentioned that the widget takes up a lot of space, and some also mentioned that they would like to use this space to solely feature their Status Updates, which otherwise can only be found on the Watch Feed.

The Activity widget is now editable, with two actionable changes for deviants to customize, giving you more control over what displays on your Profile Page: 
  • Display all items, or just Status Updates.
  • Display 5, 10, or 20 items.

This is the initial update of several improvements to come, and we're continuing to monitor performance and community feedback to better the DeviantArt experience. We look forward to reading and thank you for your continued feedback!
