A month has passed since I joined RedBubble and I thought I'd update how that month has gone.
Have I sold anything? No. Did I expect to? It would have been real nice, but to be honest, no, I didn't expect to. So what did I expect? Not so much expect. But rather hope . . . I hoped for greater exposure. And I feel I have gotten that.
RedBubble has literally thousands of groups, each one having a different 'raison être'. Some are about black & white images. Others about Canadian historical sites, Some are for flowers in general while others are for a particular flower such as a peony. There are groups for painters, some for those who use a brush and canvas and some for those that use software to create their masterpieces. There are groups for landscapes, cityscapes or seascapes. Think of a topic, and you'll likely find one or two groups existing just for it.
Since I joined RedBubble, I have joined 45 different groups. When you are in a group, you are asked to enter an image that meets the group's guidelines and complies with their rules. Others may comment on your image from time to time as you may on images of others.
Each group has a Host, often several, who moderate the group, establish the guidelines and rules, post challenges, and regularly feature works from group members. To be featured is an honour. In my first month at RedBubble, I have been honoured to have 7 of my images featured in 7 groups.
The following are those images that were featured in a group on RedBubble during my first month there.
La Sauvagine watercolour was featured in RedBubble groups ‘Before and After’ on January 9 and in ‘Enhanced Photos’ on January 12
Tailed jay butterfly was featured in ‘A Bug’s Kingdom’ on January 12

All in all, a very good first month. And I look forward to what the next month brings.
