DD

Journal Entry: Sat Jan 21, 2017, 7:20 PM
I really hope this is the year I finally get a Daily Deviation. I honestly believe I deserve one, and that I have something in my gallery worth a DD. Every time I post a new deviation I wonder if that will be the one to get a DD. I know some deviants don't value Daily Deviations, but I do. I feel like it's an accomplishment. With my work, I've always valued any special attention it's given. Features, favorites, comments, etc. Even in my job I probably get overly excited when I accomplish new goals, or am given special opportunities. Getting a DD has always been something I greatly valued, and I just hope this year is the year. :}

you do know how DD's work right? It's basically a popularity thing....think US high school and you'll be about there. It's about who you know on the site not necessarily the quality of your work.

It's not true that you need to be popular or have "the right" friends. I look at the Daily Deviations every single day. I actually see many deviants with a small following, and with few favorites. There are definitely deviants who have over 5 DDs and keep getting them, but they also really do deserve it. I have even seen someone a deviant for only a month, or less than a year, get their first DD.
You just need people who actually suggest, and know how to, find you and enjoy your art enough to suggest it!
I have plenty of followers, am active in many groups, get featured all the time, and am followed by a volunteer and even recently a DA Staff member. Popularity isn't everything for getting a DD.

I didn't say it is only a popularity contest it helps. I just know I got a DD shortly after befriending a cv. Sounds like you are doing all the right things though. Maybe if you don't focus so much on it then it'll happen for you...

I don't focus on it at all. It's just been a thing I've always wanted.
I'm always going to share to groups, that has nothing to do with trying to get a DD. Just trying to share my art.
I sometimes suggest DDs (even got someone a DD!), and I comment on DDs too. That I do because I genuinely like the art, not for my benefit.

Always wanting something isn't focusing on it? Maybe just semantics. Perhaps this post will gather enough attention to get you one.

I really hope she DOESN'T get one for this post. That'd be like a participation trophy. Very hollow victory or win.

Her stuff stands on it's own, something will get noticed.

Just because you want something doesn't mean you're actively trying to pursue it. I want it, it's the back in my head. I'm not focusing my energy on it, or actively trying to go out of my way to get it. I don't even really want to get it that way. Someone will suggest me someday because they like my work, and someone has already in fact. One day I will actually get it. 
There are plenty of things I want in life but am not currently focusing my time on it at right now.

That's good! I'd rather a DD just came to you unexpectantly. Hopefully you'll log in some days and have a shitload more favs and comments than you normally do and you'll have the pleasure of the slow realisation that it's a DD.

It's obivous I both like n have showcased you within my groups n that is both a defacto fav and proof I think your posted works are good enough that I want to show them in a group with my name as founder.
Thats what I think.
I don't "do" DD's. If I would be accused of bias n favoritism ..... Not that it would matter a bit to me if twas.
But if I star anything I jump with both feet n all the way. DD's would be more time n work on top of RSF, CH, MK n sorting 6-7,000 postings daily from my 4,990+ watches.
In short I think many from your gallery should be DDed. I hope those who do those n have the online time nominate you.

I've given up hope that I would ever get one.
I believe that you have to have friends or neighbors in the right places to get such a thing, same as anywhere else.
Tooting your own horn can't hurt.
Best of luck to you !

Never give up! I've wanted to a few times, but I stay strong. You never know when it can happen.

Someone has to suggest your art to a volunteer, or you can suggest yourself. I do not like suggesting myself. Part of getting a DD for me is the fact someone liked my art enough to suggest it. 
Suggest DD
