RedBubble: An online community for YOU!
We all realize the Internet is not only big, but growing – daily- exponentially. It still boggles my mind.
I’ve been around this ever expanding knowledge source since its very inception and at one time I could actually say that I had, ‘…been to every place on the Net.’ However, within 6 months of being able to say that, no one has been able to do so since. The growth has been phenomenal!
Yet, as big and rapid growth can be on the Internet, it still amazes me that I find really cool stuff that seems to have just slipped by me. Since I devote an inordinate number of hours keeping tabs on what is ‘out there’ – I don’t like being reminded that I miss a LOT! But, it’s true: I DO!
RedBubble is a captivating site. It’s fun to look around. It’s entertaining. It’s informative. It’s inspirational. It’s a great opportunity.
RedBubble is all about being a vibrant community of people who love to share their creativity. It’s all about self expression and the ability to attach to a community that is more about supporting you than supplanting you. Now that is a breath of fresh air. Is it not?
RedBubble recognizes that, given the right tools and opportunities, everyone can be an artist. Some will be better – of course – but none-the-less, everyone can – and should – produce something of artistic and intrinsic value. They then give you a platform to show what you do and gather input.
RedBubble provides you with a Free account where you can upload your images for viewing. Visitors to the site, register and non-registered members alike can view your work. As well, RedBubble makes your personal account a selling mechanism. You can sell your work on RedBubble and they will take care of the production, shipping and payment for you. Pretty sweet suite of tools .. eh?
RedBubble offers goods on which you can put your artwork ranging from postcards to T-shirts and more. Quite an array of products … and still ones people actually want to buy. A real opportunity.
RedBubble isn’t the only site like this online – and I will introduce you to more – but it is one of the neatest looking sites. You will find it filled with very talent artists. You will enjoy being a part of this community – even if it didn’t have the ability to help you make some extra cash!
Look into it and let us know what your URL is and how you’re doing.
