I've been thinking about some things recently...
I've had this account now for close to 10 years, which would mean that I've had this since I was a teen in highschool. Since then I've wiped this gallery I think twice now? I can't be sure, but I know it has undergone at least one wipe... But that's happened, and there are so many old pieces in my favorites from artists I used to follow who are no longer here or have taken their work down as they progress... Plus the comments I've left, while I'm sure aren't horribly controversial or anything earth-shattering, do reflect aspects of myself that I would like to think I've outgrown a little over the past decade.
What I'm getting at is that I'm either going to change my account name or start fresh with a whole new account. The reason I'm debating this is that the account name change service really does nothing more than simply let you rename your gallery, essentially. All old links still work, which means that nothing is really different or new. You just have a different name. Woo.
A new account, however, would mean a new start with a fresh gallery. I could mark my artwork up to this point as old and move on. Of course, I could do that here, but would it really be the same? Besides, I have accounts that are related to my artwork elsewhere, and I like to keep some username consistency that just hasn't proved viable with my current username.
All of that said, the task of refilling a brand new gallery and regaining what little traffic I've managed to generate here might prove a daunting task, especially considering that my son is only just now closing in on two months and we're trying to complete some needed repairs on our home before we move back.
Weighing the pros and cons here, but I think ultimately that I know what I'm going to do. A lot has changed in my life since I took on hellbunny as an online handle, and maybe it's time I update my online name to reflect that a bit. I'm not leaving, I swear! I'm just debating a big move.
