I GOT A DD!!!Wow, So I woke up this morning with this feeling that something exciting would happen today, and guess what it did! I got a DD! I cannot believe that I finally got one, I have wanted one for as long as I have been on deviantart, and to all my watchers who know me well, know that I would have done anything to get one!

5 Reasons Why I Love Suggesting DDsBeing Part of the Great dA Community
I first started to suggest DDs on 12th November 2015. This in not quite a long time. But I am looking forward to going on with it. At the beginning it was a bit tough to start the process. Things like "Why do I think that this deviation should awarded a DD?" Of course, it only needs a few facts, but I am still writing a whole novel sometimes. I pack all my feelings into telling about the beauty of this work. After some time, I have seen that simply suggesting without a reason, does work as well. So, no need to be afraid what to write.
Also, the question about the suggestions being accepted haunted me. "Does it please also to the CV"? "What would happen when not being accepted"? No problem, there is always a chance. The more you suggest, the more deviations have the chance to get accepted.
The CVs are also very kind and do not bite or eat you. If you have question, they will help you. There is always a chance of being an integrated a

5 Reasons Why I Love Suggesting DDsWith DDSuggestionDrive (FAQs) starting up once more, and running all through February, this is perfect timing to showcase the beauty that are Daily Deviations.
DA has a large number of CVs who are striving to showcase a number of beautiful deviations every day that stand out amongst the large galleries and categories.
The experience of a CV featuring your art is amazing - but to see other deviants enjoying your art enough to suggest it to receive a DD, is probably just as wonderful.
Over the past 4 years, I've suggested a number of DDs - and there are several reasons why I like doing it.
Putting on your bold shoes and stepping out of your comfort zone.

It can be sort of terrifying to even begin to write a note to a CV. I always figured, they must be swamped with suggestions, it must take days to even put a dent in the amount of notes
5 Reasons Why I Love Suggesting DDs
As some of you already noticed, I love suggesting DDs!
And I am actually quite new to suggesting DDs. Why?
I did not really know I can do that...
Once I found out anybody can do that, I was shy to approach artists I admire, who are usually very busy...
And I did not want to put myself out there, risking to feel rejected and not knowing how to react when we meet again somewhere in dA, maybe related to other projects...I thought I do not have the time for it...Well, in between I started to understand how it works, some CVs helped me get over my shyness, I got over feeling rejected and I made some time for sending suggestions.
And here is why:
1) I love featuring!
I love tracing the artworks I feature, to see if they really get a
