No, Moose and I aren't breaking up, don't worry! But I've been reshuffling a few things online, including this blog and my Instagram account! For the longest time, I've wanted to keep everything together; my personal life and art life, as I kind of figured they overlapped enough that it wouldn't bother people too much to see crossposting. However, I found myself feeling guilty if I posted shameless fashion posts to Instagram when people had followed me there for art, and I feel weird putting art here on my blog when people are probably coming here for Disney trip reports, haha.
That said, I used this place as my primary URL to link on my business card, so when people took my card at conventions, they'd come here, looking for art - and while I do link my art gallery and such on here, I always felt like this place's primary focus was the blog, which very rarely was about art at all! So, while my art and life kind of do overlap a lot (I only ever draw silly video game characters and all I do in my spare time is play video games, after all!), I think it makes to finally split things up a little bit.
So what does that mean? Well, basically, I've changed the URL for this place, which means Bloglovin' is currently very confused. I'm hoping to get the URL changed over soon! This place is now http://www.dreamsomehow.com, which is what I've been calling the blog, anyway. The focus here is going to be on life blogging and general nerdery, so expect game reviews, fashion posts, cosplay, adventures at Disneyland and various other fun things!
My previous URL, http://www.reaperfox.com, now links directly to a website specifically devoted to my art and crafts! I'll update the blog there too, but primarily that site is going to act as a hub for where to find my art online (Tumblr, Instagram, etc.), as well as a vaguely professional portfolio with commission information! Woo!
I really hope people enjoy the content I put out here on this blog! Now I've finally made this decision, I hope it's going to free me of the hangups I had with blogging. Crossposting art and lifestyle content might be for some folks, but I really don't think it's for me.
As for Instagram, I've split that up too! I actually wanted to for ages, but I didn't want to log in and out of accounts all the time. However, I recently discovered that Instagram actually has as really handy 'switch account' feature on their app, so that solved the problem! My @reaperfox IG account is going to be specifically for art posts and I've created a new @dreamsomehow IG to compliment this blog! Please feel free to follow either or both, I'd really love my IG presence to grow a little more now I'm finally using it regularly (especially my @dreamsomehow account, which I'm trying to update every day!)
