Hey all, been awhile since I made a real post like this and figured it was time to fix that. Enough people have asked (or the same Anonymous person over and over ;) heh) about requests for me to warrant writing this post.
To answer the main question, yes, I still do requests but I don't do all of them. There are several factors that play into this. First, and you may or may not believe this, but as of right now I have 60 caps already backlogged and ready to post. Each day I choose a few at random and post them. So there is a possibility your request has been made and just not posted yet. Could be tomorrow, could be months from now. Ya never know! :)
Secondly, the reason I don't do requests as often as I used to is because of the way some people treated me. Im not the only capper that has to deal with this and it saddens me that people think it's fine to talk down on us or be disrespectful because they don't get what they want. We aren't machines. Plus, only a small handful of people ever comment so it always feels like there's more "I want this" instead of "hey this was a great cap. Thanks!" Those who do post comments, you are AMAZING. You keep me motivated and I thank you. You know who you are... ;) I try to reply when I can.
Thirdly, I love to write. Im not really good at it but I love to do it. Thats why I have so many caps backlogged but I can only do it at my own pace. I can go weeks without writing a single cap, hence the backlog in case. Certain days I can write a whole bunch. Ya never know when the mood strikes. So there are times I see a request and think "Wow I have to write this now." because the idea hits me immediately. But a lot of the times it's harder. So I pick and choose the requests Im comfortable with. Dont take it personally if yours is not done. Sometimes I just cant think of how to write it.
Hope this clears things up. Also, if you do write a request, please put it in the request section. If you post a request in the comments of a picture that is a surefire way it's never going to get done. I wont remember to go back and check for it there.
Thanks guys. Glad you like my blog.
