I feel rather pleased with myself as I have purchased a subscription to the best art community there is. My DeviantArt account now has some spiffy extras for me to enjoy. I now have my own forum, a shoutboard, I can make polls and I can customise my journal with CSS. Another big plus is surfing without ads that take forever and ever to load. Now I can load thousands of images much quicker.
But, the main reason I chose to have a subscription is because I wanted to improve my communication with my visitors. I can now see which members have visited my site. When they have left me a comment I will get the comment in my inbox entirely instead of having to click a link to the page it's on and having to press reply there. It's all much more social now. I hope this will help increase traffic on my account.
However, I am poor now, so you need to go and buy my designs that I hardly make any profit on. ;)
