You know, I have a blog at http://robert.mittonvillage.com/ and the whole purpose of it was to not only figure out to actually build a website using Wordpress, but also to have somewhere to share my daily Year of Creative Habits drawings as I completed that year long challenge.
I’ve since finished that project (that was back in 2015), and since then I’ve discovered Patreon. I posted all my work on there but then I started a second YOCH for 2017 in January. I’ve since went back to my blog to share that specific project (photography related, unlike my Patreon which is listed as all digital artwork)
I don’t have ‘that’ many fans or anything, but they’re still important to me of course. I wonder if I should get in contact with them and find out if following my work is confusing at all. I’d toss up a poll but I’m not sure if I’d get enough results really. I share so many things via Instagram, Twitter, my Facebook art page, my website, and my Patreon.
So I think I’m kind of in confused, myself! I’ve always heard that having your own website is super important, but I love everything about how Patreon works, and it’s worked very well for me so far, and the money I bring in from that has helped tremendously. Even if it’s a relatively small amount.
I’ve even set up these “recipe” things from https://ifttt.com so that under certain conditions, when I post something on Instagram (for example) it gets share everywhere else. I highly recommend them to anyone interested in sharing their work over multiple social networks! They’ve never let me down.
EDIT: Sorry for the book I tend to ramble.
