So two things I'd like to update on this morning!  I'm attending Bronycon as an assistant to a vendor friend of mine, looking to meet any other cool bronies (new and veterans) to hang out with, game, chat, etc.  Anyone else going? Please leave your comment below!  And if this is your first time, I don't mind showing anyone new to the herd the ropes of their first Brony convention experience! (mine was almost overwhelming from all the fun I had last year!).

Secondly, on a more serious note, the business of Tumblr.  So about two weeks ago I had an artist I wanted to commission called Unlimited-Elfworks (who does an excellent job on human figures) and we spent all morning discussing details, prices, extent of the commission, experimental styles... the whole she-bang.  We agreed to it and I had to run as I was late for an out-of-town appointment and wouldn't be back till after the weekend.  Well, when I got back, this artist was blindingly furious at me for perceived slights to her and her customers (not sure how I insulted her customers in a private message with her?), and she proceeded to renege on the deal and so we both moved on.  I posted a Tumblr PSA post just warning people of my own personal experience with this artist.

Now it's been two weeks, and her boyfriend starts to harass me on Tumblr.  And because he is so madly in love with her, he tells me he can be rude and nasty and unprofessional because I was involved with the love of his life, and that I somehow insulted him too - even though he wasn't part of the 2 week old discussion.  Then he starts sending anonymous spam at me (had to disable anon postings for now) and gets one his fans to start sending me essay reblogs that my experience didn't happen because it's a 'non-experience' unless I post proof that she cancelled the agreement...

Yeah, really weird stuff.  He starts posting all this obnoxious 'logic' NFL pictures and says he wins the argument because I can't prove that my discussion with his favorite artist ever happened... had to block him to stop him from bothering me.  All over something that happened 2 weeks ago...?  Jeez, some people can't let go or have a reasonable discussion, can they?  I had almost forgotten about it as I've moved on and found an artist who is already doing that commission for me.

I know I've read about how some artists get harassed on DA and Tumblr on something similar.. for example NSFW art and how they get bombarded by hate email and spam.  Never thought it would happen to me, but seeing how that is like.. it's stupid and crazy.  I guess just because the Internet gives them that anonymity, they feel they can be rude and harass people without consequence?

Meh, well I'm not dwelling on that.  If one thing that MLP has taught me is to not dwell on bad stuff like that and focus on the positive stuff!  I'm out of town this weekend to attend Comic-con with a friend in or near Tampa, and next weekend is BRONYCON!  Going to be such a packed next 2 weeks!  After Bronycon (and being that I've settled in after moving back to Florida), I will be able to focus on pumping out the rest of my fan-fiction now that I currently unemployed.  Hope everyone else's weekend starts better than mine did!
