Blogging Community Guidelines
Blogging is a feature available to users with the Pro Account allowing them to express themselves with the freedom of words and media. It can be a great way to test your art, add tips or tutorials and get feedback before you decide to add anything to your portfolio. We want you to feel free to post what you want and express yourself in the most constructive way possible.
That being said, to help keep this a great place for your content and the community, we have some guidelines that we expect you to follow. Failure to follow the guidelines may result in the deletion of the post and suspension of your blogging capabilities. Be mindful!
