During this past week, I’ve begun to experiment with posting some of my reviews and short stories placed from this site onto DeviantArt….
I earned a few llamas–badges that other nice Deviants can share with each other for free–but otherwise the response there has been somewhat quiet and nonexistent.
Perhaps it is because DeviantArt is better known for its visual art, as opposed to its written works. It is easier for someone browsing a site like DA to enjoy several pieces of artwork, rather than sit down to read longer literary pieces. I guess artwork is what most visitors expect to encounter there.
For the time being, then, WordPress has shown itself to be the better place for written works to have more of a chance to get seen and appreciated–which does make sense because it is a place for bloggers to stretch out creative wings!
