Goddammit! I feel like s***! Okay, listen, I haven't checked my Deviantart in a while. Like, a couple of days. But today when I went onto my page, find that I have 202 page views. To most people that's nothing, but to me that's pretty epic!
I didn't think I would get 1 page view, let alone a little over 200! So I celebrate by putting in a Status commemorating me getting 200 page views, like the naive little c*** that I am.
Hell yeah, Awesome, right? 10/10.
Then I go check my notifications to see what arts been released by some of the people I have on my watch list. I see kilalaaa
has some stuff up, so I check her page.
And I find this.
What?! Goddammit! 9 million?! 9 f***ing million page views!!!
I get excited for one f***ing minute, and I get shot down!
What the hell! I get excited about 200 page views, and she's excited by about 45 000 times that! (Math Nerd
The hell! Why can't I have nice things? Really, why can't I have nice things.
It's f***ing Youtube all over again. I got a video online somewhere of a younger me dancing like an idiot to Moves Like Jagger while playing Just Dance, with my squeaky little voice, but it's only got like 90 views. I thought that would get me up to like, Shane Dawson level. I would've used the money I got from the video to buy a new table. Well, to be fair, flipping a glass table may not have been such a bright idea.
I mean, maybe it's because I don't really to Visual forms of art. I have a few posts, but most of my work are Lame ass quotes and Bad Poetry. While the most well known Painters, Drawers, or Graphic Artists are really well known, guys who do Literature are mostly invisible. Just try looking up Deviant Artists, whose main focus is Literature. Go on. Try it. I can wait.
You can't find too many can you, or none at all for some. For the ones that you do find, it's either it's just a side thing for them or they use it to help explain something with their Art. I guess there are better sites dedicated to writings, but sometimes I feel that the writers and poets are underappreciated. But then I think about how little interest people have had in reading nowadays. It kinda makes sense.
I mean, it's sad, yes, but I think we can appreciate it even more when people do come around and see our stuff. When they do, it feels f***ing awesome.
I end up feeling like Goddamn Shakespeare when people see the s*** I make. Now I kinda get why Kanye fells that way.
But in all seriousness, right, I'm very happy for kilala getting people to go onto her page 9 million times, cause she deserves it. She's awesome.
Sure, it probably isn't exactly 9 million people who go on her page, but she got people to revisit it enough to reach 9 million. Including me! The little bitch who's making a nonsensical, satirical rant about how he only has 200 page views. People probably won't even see this. But I'm making it anyway, because, why the f*** not. I'm surprised you even got this far. But anyways, Hope you have a lovely day now.
P.S. To kilala, if you do see this which is f***ing unlikely; Hell of a Job with Dove in recent posts. She's my favourite (spelled like this because I'm from Canada) of your OCs, and seeing the new posts literally made my day, even more than the 200 Page views. As a Writer, I love how Dove gets this bit of character development, plus added world building. However, this can be a Bane or Boon, as we all know how the fandom reacts to both of those things from
the Twilicorn incident the Alicorn Baby
events that have happened from the show.
Excited to see what happens next anyway.
