If I was to take up pony askblogging again I’d have to do things very different.
[…]

Just to be clear:
I’m so very grateful for all the support, and pleasantly surprised that people still check here. I love Scootalone, but haven’t found the motivation to continue askblogging, which, for me, is incredibly time-consuming, usually thankless and difficult to be proud of.
So if it wasn’t already obvious, I have no immediate plans to update. Though I do still think a lot about this blog and I’m almost certain that if I don’t take this one up again, I’ll be doing something very similar soon.
Thanks again for watching!

The very same goes for AJ&RD.
Thanks to everyone who enjoyed this blog, who shared it and asked questions and especially to those who still check back in the hope that I’ve updated.
This blog was created to give me a good reason to practice a new hobby - one that I started only a couple of weeks before I started AJ&RD - and it became much more than I ever expected. For helping me with that, I thank you and can only apologise that this ended with a whimper rather than a bang.

I meant ‘cause you’re always working! Sheesh.

Anonymous said: Why do you update so rarely?

I’ll try to assume that you’re asking because you watch and like the blog - for which I thank you.

I do actually announce things like breaks and holidays on my mod/art blog. One of the reasons I started an OOC blog was so that I could keep OOC stuff away from AJRD. Unfortunately out of the 1,368 AJRD followers, only 57 follow that blog, so it doesn’t work as well as I intended.

On this occasion I’m not updating because my girlfriend is on holiday from work and I’m spending as much time as I can with her.

I hope you can appreciate that I do this for free, and that it takes longer than you might expect for me to draw an update. You might have noticed from the 30-minute challenges that I’m one of the slower ones. Regardless - any blogger will tell you it takes a lot of time to run a drawblog and, though I’m very grateful for all the support, I get nothing in return. (Except for the one donation from ASCII ponies - thank you, you’re awesome.)

So I hope you can give me a bit of slack and help me to enjoy updating AJRD, rather than make me feel like it’s a job that I’m doing wrong (which I’m sure was not your intention).

Thank you very much for the support.

OOC: The Tip Jar

Tentatively, I’d like to say a couple of things about the “Donate” button that’s up on AJRD.

I don’t have a job and it’s been a tough Christmas. I have, however, been busy with pony art and ended up running two blogs, both of which I love writing and drawing for, and I love the support that you have all given me. Unfortunately, though it hasn’t earned me anything material.

So I’ve opened up a Tip Jar. This is not charity, this is a service tip: for anyone who thinks I’m doing a good job and has a little bit to spare. I’ll be incredibly grateful for any amount and will keep working hard regardless.

I do not intend to make a profit out of my supporters. In fact I’m almost certain that, with the relatively small investments I’ve put into this, I will never break even.

Alternatively, if you would like a more personal return from your money, please feel free to contact me about commissions.

Thank you very much for reading. And I will try my hardest never to mention this on the AJRD blog again.
