Eat, Share, Pray...

- Eat Lionfish,
- Share the word they need to be eradicated in the Caribbean and American waters,
- Pray that together we can stop this menace by working together.…

p.s. As beautiful as these fish are, “the lionfish invasion has the potential to be the ‘most disastrous marine invasion in history’” according to the NOAA (National Oceanic & Atmospheric Administration, USA). Order The Lionfish Cookbook for everyone you know who SCUBA dives, and you can contribute to REEF.org at the same time!

Your Inner Animal... who are you?

For the Inner Animal challenge,

Like the wild horses of Wyoming, I need…
- the wind in my face,
- wildness to roam with my herd nearby,
- utter quiet interrupted only by the song of a lark,
- some mud puddles in life to have a good roll and swim,
- the scent of sage in the air and the taste of wild forage on my tongue,
- the deep dark skies of the desert and mountains and the sigh of the wind to rock me to sleep at night.
Though the website “The Animal In You” says I’m an otter, which I would gladly be, I was born in the Chinese Year of the Horse, so it’s the wild horse or brumby for me! Charity for a donation could be The Cloud Foundation.…

In the heart of the Red Desert, Wyoming, USA, in the middle of miles of nothing but sagebrush, this little foal shone like a beacon of strength and beauty.

Why RB, and Driving Traffic to RB

Response to the Poll asking “Do you post your images on-line” in the previous Journal Entry:
My emphasis is on selling images as prints, canvas wraps, and cards, but I’m not interested in printing and shipping the orders myself, and rely on RedBubble for that. I have a dormant Flickr account, and have gravitated toward RedBubble for the clean uncluttered interface, the emphasis on a high level of artistic quality (rather than just snapshots), the very supportive atmosphere, the built-in security/protection of ownership, and worldwide feedback… all for free. Two million visitors pass by RedBubble per month, nice traffic which is looking for top notch art and photography.…

To get the word out about the portfolio of images I have on RB, I use Facebook (which links seamlessly with RB) and YouT

YouTube Window and Feed for RB

Since I’ve finally learned how to imbed a YouTube window into a RB description, I figured I better write it down or I would forget it… In the Description of the image or artwork uploaded, add the following type of text but with NO spaces.

youtube : /// watch?v=MPdLtRexwqw
or for Australia… youtube :au /// watch?v=MPdLtRexwqw

The text after the /// comes from the address of the YouTube video that is being referenced, the part starting with “watch…”. When I take the spaces out from the above code, I get:

and this…


p.s. According to Manolya, apparently this doesn’t work in a Forum message.
