Well, it's been a while since I've posted a blog entry, but don't feel discouraged; I've still been paying quite a lot of attention towards the group.
What's been going on?
First of all, our gallery. I've been thinking about it since I reorganised Word-Wit's gallery and today I finally got around to cleaning up our's a little. Although, instead of cleaning it up, I've basically moved all (save for our Nature's Creations works) the deviations into our "Featured" folder. Originally, when I started the group, I was copying deviations to the featured folder. Why? Well, as a non-super group, the folder display on our front page is only able to display deviations from our featured folder. So, instead of going back and copying all the deviations I didn't copy to the featured folder, I've moved all of them in there so that they all get an equal display. Why? Well, in my time on dA, I've noticed that certain mediums don't get viewed as much as others, for example, wallpapers might not get seen very often unless people are looking for them. So, in short, what I mean is that all deviations are now dispalyed in the feature folder.
Well, I'm proud to say that we have just about 200 members in the group! I always look forward to seeing your works.
So, some of you might have noticed the features I've been posting in the news and others might have had their works feature (that might be why some of you joined...). Well, I have abunch of ideas for future ones, but would love to hear what you think of them. If you have ideas for future features, I'd love to hear them.
If you haven't taken a look at them, or maybe missed one, a list is as follows:
One: The Rose Garden...
Two: A second walk through the rose garden...
Three: Getting close and personal in the garden
Four: A garden free from colour
Five: A garden can only grow with time...
Six: EW YUCK! Bugs in MY garden?
Seven: Nature's Creations
Eight: Speaking softly in the garden...
Nine: Travelling down the trail...
Speaking of news articles, our dear affiliate Imortal-Splendor has just posted a selection of features from their weekly themes. You should check them out, and of course, check out the group. More weekly themes are coming (their current one is insects, I believe).
