If you find an artist you like on Newgrounds, be sure to click the red heart to FOLLOW them. Here are some recommendations from this week:
In other news, Luis re-skinned the Newgrounds subreddit and we're now promoting it alongside our other internet outposts!
It's tempting for me to plug NG submissions on Reddit the way I do on the NG Tumblr, Facebook, etc. but I feel like things on reddit are most interesting when they are shared by the person who made them. If you've made something and uploaded it on NG, you should definitely attempt to share it on reddit. The big decision will be which subreddit you classify it under. If you've made a video game parody, you might have the best odds in the Gaming subreddit. If you want to get in front of the NG crowd though, the NG subreddit is a great place to share. The important thing now is that we build that crowd - if you have a reddit account, be sure to subscribe to the Newgrounds subreddit!
Keep in mind that if you already visit NG daily, you don't need to join a new site just because we have an outpost there. We set up these outposts because we acknowledge that some NG fans spend most their time on other sites. If you're an NG fan who visits NG once a month but visits reddit daily, the NG subreddit is a great way to keep you in the loop. Same for those of you who hang out on Tumblr or Facebook or whatever your preferred place is. We even have a Newgrounds Pinterest if you happen to frequent that site.
It's rewarding when people on these sites interact with our posts, since it really validates the effort. Tumblr and Facebook have been good for this so far. Google+ is like a wasteland but I'm gonna keep trying, so be sure to follow us if you have a Google account, which you probably do because it's kinda unavoidable. And try to + the stuff you like so I know you saw it. If all this effort works, it should help expose NG and the contributors to NG to a much wider audience.
Don't miss Game Jam 9, currently in the Art Jam phase leading up to the actual game jam later next week!
