Protip: If you're an and/or art appreciator who is missing the app-that-must-not-be-named, that 'media' tab on profiles sure is nice. 😉 This is honestly a reminder for myself as well. 😂 It's really handy to be able to get a bird's eye view of what kind of art a person has posted so far without having to break your thumb scrolling through their page! 💖

please boost, currently am trying to discover a
- widely used
- preferably not bad at EULA / copyright
- not fascist
- allows not safe for work / risque content

website for hosting my art on

i know of deviantart (bad eula from what I know), tumblr (banned nsfw / risque content), and twitter (fascist)

i'm sure there are more options, a few i have heard of, but i don't know Details about them, yanno?

I joined yesterday and now it's totally crashed 😂 oops. I know it's from the influx of new users but also... they had to know that was coming LOL

This month has been a bit bad and I'm worried I won't be able to pay my rent, so if you want to support me you can:
- check out my shop:
- tip me:
- or boost this, thanks 💙

My commissions are also open! Info and examples here

So I guess goes public tomorrow. Anyone have any thoughts or input on it? I remember hearing about it when the Tumblr shit happened but then I forgot about it 😂

Y'all remember those beaded lizards that were all the rage back in the day? I had the urge to do something with beads last night, but I used seed beads instead of pony beads because I like tiny things. UwU

Transition crowdfund fundraiser, PLEASE boost!! (update 6th January) 

Summary: Hi I'm Julia, an autistic mentally ill trans woman in poverty from the UK who is long-term unemployed, living with my partner who is also a long-term unemployed trans girl. Since my dysphoria is making it really hard to cope and I need the hope of something to help out, I've set up a fundraiser to pay for private medical transition costs. PLEASE help me out if you can, I don't want to keep putting off my transition and being the person I want to be for longer, already at 29, the dysphoria and anxiety of it seriously affects my mental health.

Goal Progress: £678.43/£6700

Thank you SO MUCH to everyone who donated over the holiday period, your generosity is honestly overwhelming! 💖💖💖 I can now afford 2 clinic appointments at least, and will be arranging one shortly. But I still have a long way to get to my goal, so please keep reblogging and donate if you can!

If you're able to, please donate, any amount at all helps, if not able to please don't worry about it, I know many of us are struggling, but please boost to spread around, it helps immeasurably!

Also if you are on Tumblr could you boost my post there too please? (if the link below does not work I have probably changed my Tumbr url, you can @ me to ask for the new one)

I guess I bring it up because... I'm curious if anyone else has been thinking about this. And also, I've noticed some folks boosting their own posts, and in the case of one artist I follow, it actually resulted in me seeing pieces of theirs that I hadn't yet, even though they were posts that I should have seen, since I follow them. So I guess that's an okay strategy??

Right now it's not a big deal because I don't follow that many people, so my feed is easy to scroll through. I can scroll for maybe 10 minutes and get caught up to the last time I logged in. But if Mastodon continues to grow (which I think would be a good thing?) it will be harder and harder to keep up with content and people I follow... and then you just end up with a different flavor of endless scroll.

So what happens to that content that I'm not online to see when it's posted? What about people that follow me but are in drastically different time zones but would like my content if they saw it? IDK for some content it's not a big deal, but I'm mostly on social media to engage with other artists and view their work. So it's a bummer to me that an artist I like could be posting and I have no idea. :/

So obviously chronological feed is better than an algorithmic feed (especially the way insta is now, where you have to pay to get your content in front of people, and if the people you follow don't post the way insta wants, you'll never see their content). But also purely chronological easily results in missed content too, because you can't (and shouldn't) monitor your feed 24/7.

I honest to god did not realize how many birds I had painted over the years until I put them all together like this. 😂

So I'm having the hardest time finding creative energy to paint, do you have any tips for artists block?

I'd love some small easy creative tasks so I can get back into the groove of things without too much pressure.
