I'm probably even more surprised than you! I generally only post something on dA once every few months, and check in once every two weeks or so. This site is much like Tumblr for me, I have to avoid it most of the time or I'll lose an entire day to image browsing. I never submit my images to any groups or anything so I never have very high expectations as to views or anything else. If my friend Ava hadn't posted about it on my Facebook wall, I wouldn't have even known about the Daily Deviation. I'm quite happy about it though!
Well thank you! I appreciate the heads up! It probably would have been a couple of days before I checked dA again and been utterly overwhelmed with all of the comments, views and favourites! I love dA, but I tend not to come here often because, like Tumblr, when I do I have a habit of losing hours to image browsing. I should really be utilizing it a lot more.
I know completely what you mean. If I head to DA, I try to focus on the few comments I get and thanking people for faving my stories. I have to use all my willpower to not just browse deviations for the next 6 hours or so.
