(as your favourite/non-favourite TV bulletin plays in the background)
I totally have some meat in my bones this time as I'm going to tell you what I've been up to lately.
I switched jobs at the tail end of the summer, ending my short stint in the motorway services in favour of enhancing my year-long role in merchandising. Now I'm with a new marketing directive in the hopes of improving what I'm actually good at; all while taking advantage of the autumn adult education course to take up teaching in some foreign land. After all the disappointment the employment machine has given me these last couple of years, I'm taking my own course of action to go a new direction and relegate my graphic design to something I do in my downtime.
As for cons, I'll be ready for BronyScot in November, which will twice as much fun as last year's.
Now on to this son of a bitch. From what I gathered from Tumblr, I seem to have a huge love/hate relationship with it. On one end it has this rich flow of content that exemplifies all things crazy about the internet, but on the other it's just plain nasty. Even before I registered two of my sites on there at the start of the year (one for art, other for myself), I can't see through the dumb, fratboy humour everyone seems to lavish. When I see potential in one tumblr that makes every bit of effort to stand out, there are ten more hiding behing there that makes me go, "eeeh?" I pretty much gave up on my personal tumblr 'cause I don't do random like I used to and instead pushed on with MLP fanart with little or no direction I want to take it. It's here if you wanna look : corduroyroadoc.tumblr.com/
...it's clean, by the way.
It's time I own up and say I'm lost as to what I intend to show and who exactly it'd be for. I know for sure it's a showcase of my OC ponies because I'm a big OC guy, but nothing more for now. One tutorial for pony tumblrs would make my day. Too bad I'm selfish because it's for OCs and fanart only and I wouldn't dare like or reblog anything that didn't come from my keyboard.
Maybe I'm going at it wrong or my methods are wrong. It has to be.
Maybe it should be a dick and balls blog like everyone else's.
I'd love to hear your opinion on this Tumblr matter and land a hand. Trust me, I kept quiet about it as long as I could, as I still do believe I can get the most out of it, only not from my current techniques.
And, er, that's it! Be safe. (*?*)Commission Corduroy Road
