Have any of you tried to do something to promote yourself here or get people to 'watch' you here?

Curious for any input you might have. 

Best,
Jerry

What a friend of mine did that seemed to work was he created art that was in a specific genre then posted links of that art that was hosted on deviantart in forums on other websites. That built up a lot of traffic for him and many of the people who were seeing his art on those site were also members of deviantart so they fav'd his stuff and he built up an impressive following. He passed me in viewership within his first month and I've been on here for years but I never self promote or do anything. My account on here is more of a library of stuff than it is a place for me to promote my work. He is just way more involved than I am and it doesn't hurt that his artwork kicks ass.

Wow. I think I'm in your boat. I don't do those things here as often as I do in other social media outlets. Those are great ideas!

Thank you for sharing this!

I guess that's the key. I'd LOVE to get more active here, and maybe I'll do that someday when I reorganize my time to make room for it. 

Thanks for sharing!

I also post stuff I want to share or get eyeballs on o my twitter Mijder. My characters as draw by other people (cause lets face it, I'm rubbish) I post to the Domino Comics facebook page (www.facebook.com/dominocomics), website (www.dominocomics.com), and twitter (@DominoComix). Besides that I'm always on the lookout for people on DeviantArt that I can work with or just do stuff I enjoy (see all the Robins in my favorites list).

You are not rubbish! But we all always strive to be better at the things we do! :)
