Not a single flippin' Christmas sale? Are you serious? What is going on DA? Seriously. This is the first time I can remember in all of my almost 13 years that you haven't had a Christmas sale. Instead people are served with a giant banner for a "membership drive" at the bottom of their pages. 

Where are the 12 days of Christmas sale I remember so fondly? Where are the sales on prints, devWear, all of that? It used to be I loved sending people here to buy my work this time of the year but apparently Christmas has been cancelled on deviantART. 

It would see the ship here is sinking and I think a lot of deserve a little explanation, wouldn't you say? People look forward to Christmas all year long on DA, they save their money up for it and yet.....nothing. 

WTF is going on?
Discuss this please. Click to expand it and read ALL the replies. 
Does anybody else notice the lack of Christmas sales on DA this year? It used to be prints and products would be on sale....nothing up top at all, zero. There was what I call a "membership drive" but aside from that, nothing. Things that make you go hmmmmmm........

Please feel free to share my photo on twitter, facebook, etc. and please link back.  Prints available here on deviantART!
The Rocky Mountain peaks of the West Elks come alive during an autumn snowstorm along Kebler Pass outside the towns of Gunnison and Crested Butte, Colorado. Whenever you have snowfall in the mountains during autumn, you can always expect a lot of drama and a whole lot of beauty. The colors and the contrast really drew me in to the scene. I hope you all enjoy it.

Why is there no way to purchase artwork through the app? For the life of me, I can't even find a link to the deviantART Shop on the app. 
What's up with that? Also, when purchasing artwork here on DA you must have a Paypal account. Is this new? What happened to accepting credit card payments and why is there no guest option for buyers. People shouldn't have to sign up to the site. 
This doesn't exactly help me sell my work DA.

Playing in traffic as a photographer

Journal Entry: Wed Aug 10, 2016, 8:23 AM
It's an important thing. Not that kind of traffic where cars zoom by but the sort of traffic that makes up ones website(s). 
Traffic is important. For those of us who make our living in the creative world, it's invaluable. For me, it's a big thing, it tells me how many have seen my photography and allows me to market accordingly. So with that being said, I want to share something with you all. 

I uploaded my latest shot to here on DA and on 500px. The picture on DA was uploaded 30 minutes before the photo on 500px. Keep that in mind.

I think we know who gets the traffic between the 2 websites.
That says a lot doesn't it now? :)
You're welcome.
