I feel bad that I can’t follow everyone, I try to keep my dashboard under control, so I only ever follow art blogs with the exception of a few friends normal/personal/reblog blogs. I can’t stress how fussy I am about this after going through 2 years of exposure to the the wrong kind of content & gross mindsets out there on tumblr.
I’ll usually ask if it’s okay for me to unfollow peoples non-art blogs if I can, just so it doesn’t leave anyone with the wrong impression or possibly upset them if it’s out of the blue. I know I get bummed out over losing followers because I feel like I’m not doing enough art, or anything of real quality, but really I don’t know what some people are expecting from me.
It’s been a tough transition because this blog has always been a weird mixture of art and personal and I got a lot of followers on it somehow, and there were times I’d just start re-blogging a lot and there was little art to justify following me as an artist. I don’t want to have to split followers or suddenly change this blogs purpose or content. Trying to find the perfect mixture between has been a grief to deal with and I’ve gotten pretty close but still not there.
There are people I consider friends, even though I’m not following them on tumblr. I do feel shitty about it…. Thanks for putting up with my hypocritical non-art posts that occasionally pop up. It feels like I can never thank people enough.
