This is a warning indeed! It has become apparent that bubbles left unattended, just like eggs are not going to hatch into their full potential… site activity is the paternal duty of all bubblers!
I Refer you back to my earlier journal entry “Back online” in which I explain about my 2 month absence from Redbubble 2 days after joining the site. I had managed in those 2 days to upload a few images and in my absence I had a friend outside of Saudi Arabia upload some images into my account for a competition, including the shot “Camels Crossing”… it was left at that.
Finally getting back onto Redbubble, I couldn’t help but notice the lack of interest in my page over the past 2 months. Was I really that bad? Well, I hope not, but it seems a little site activity goes a long way…
Back online I began uploading a few new images, looking around and leaving comments on work by others that I had found and liked. It wasn’t long before my activity was noticed. People began viewing my page and leaving comments themselves on my work. “Camels Crossing” that I had mentioned before and gone unnoticed for the past 2 months got some particular attention. Over 100 views, some favouritings and then to my particular joy, placed on the Featured Art page. All in the same day that I got back online! Camels Crossing
Well, there you go, it seems a bit of site activity and general courtesy back and forth between bubblers really can go a long way… I’m still looking out for that elusive first sale, but in the mean time enjoying every moment on redbubble, viewing fantastic artwork, commenting on my favourites and reading other bubblers comments on my work.
To leave you with a quote, “Do Unto Others As You Would Have Them Do Unto You.”
Well, it’s only courteous!
