It's been such a long hiatus for me here, and I apologise for not sharing a lot about my life since my last journal post. Many things have happened and there's just too much to tell. If you want to keep up with my life/randomstuff/chat just drop me a message here, I will reply when I can!
Also, I have been more active on facebook and posting most of my recent works on my facebook page here : Peppa Mintos Thank you if you have popped by to like/follow my FB page!
I have been thinking long and hard if I should one day, eventually close my DA account or continue to post up pictures here. Here are some of my thoughts :
- Photo theft - I've come across photogs + cosplayers alike writing about these and how their photos are snagged off DA and not being credited. Tbh I'm not as worried as I was after giving it some thought- simply because as long as your photo is up somewhere, someone's gonna save the photo to their computer anyway. The only prevention I can think of is a watermark and uploading a not so hi-res version of your picture. But that doesn't mean I still don't get angry over people reposting without credit :/ Also, I've been uploading the best picture quality possible here, so to post a not-so hi-res version would somewhat defeat the purpose
- Viewership - How many of you still check on DA nowadays? What are the benefits of maintaining the DA page vs personal FB pages/cosplay accounts? I'd appreciate some feedback if you have stories to share
I guess that's all for now, been very busy finding work in SG (IT HAS BEEN TOUGH!) so gotta keep at it >A<;;
