I won't release my name, age, or usually country. But I have mentioned a few little things on here. No one is going to track me offline because I said I have an older sister or something else like that. It's not like giving out an address. :shrug:

I generally don't share alot of things in my life nowadays, that is, unless it's something interesting in my day (E.G. A topless protester walking past me in union square, ugh damnit I regret not having a camera to snap a quick photo of her that day... -__-)

I share a lot of stuff. Trust me, my art is more personal than almost anything else is.

I really come herre for art but it is nice to know your artist. So I do put a few details about myself but I try not to spill too much. I'll I used a different name on dA. Just personal preference.

I really do use dA for art, socializing goes on at other sites for me.

In general I'm very protective about my personal information on the internet, although this also lets me vent sometimes online if need be...

Well if it were possible the Facebook alternative was my second choice and the art is whats here important for me.
I think its better to share less personal info.

i think telling certain things that are going on in your life are okay, but it seems interesting to me when you can read something in the artist's diary and see it reflected in their art it seems to give things a whole new meaning

Oh boy, looks like I'm becoming one of those people then Dx
I share quite a lot, I like the word "journal" more than "blog" or "diary" I'm pretty open about things, but as a friend pointed out once, I don't quite reveal everything either.
I give out my age, gender and state but stay away from the specifics of name, town and school etc.

But for the things that happen during the week and such, yeah, I do get that out on here. More so for myself than anything else, but if people comment, that's a nice plus =]

I'll tell people my age, country, gender, and a few other things, such as vague references to school or uni. Other than that, if I want to talk about anything specific or rant about non-DA related stuff, there's my friends-locked LiveJournal, so I have a degree of control over who reads it. :/

I'll really only tell people my age, gender, country and maybe time-zone (since America has more than one), but that's pretty much it... oAo Unless I'm ranting about things in my journal. >:U That stuff can be pretty personal.

It's the internet, it's easier to tell a complete stranger about things than people close to you.

And they grant you the same sympathies. Though mostly I rant about these things on Stamps, where I'm not the only one sharing their life's history.

And bringing up the fact that this is an "art" website. If the Art invokes a thought or a feeling, I feel the need to tell the artist what they did, if I see an imagine that brings tears to my eyes I will tell them, and tell them why.
