Okay so my life has been in upheaval for about a month trying to get this blasted crowd funding up and running. It’s a gut wrenching procedure, making you question yourself and all your relationships. Who loves you enough? who believes in you? who thinks your ideas are worth their time and money? Anyways…I’ve come to the conclusion that the people who should love me think I’m nuts and would not fund me because why should they ( Mother and Brothers ). My husband has funded me for 22 years already…and well he won’t ask people at work to fund me because I am insane and he doesn’t want to bother them with my insanity. All my friends are starving artists so as much as they might support my project??? they don’t have the money to do it either…so have I wasted a month of my life? I sure hope the hell not.
It does feel like! I got my project rejected from Kickstarter…so I had to start again Kicking and Screaming. Of course every different crowd funding source has a different format so all that work I did all this past month is for not! Now I’ve spent two days trying to upload my stuff onto Indiegogo and I can’t seem to the get the pictures up. It seems your pictures need a URL…so I put them up on Facebook hoping that would give them a URL but no?? it doesn’t…then I tried to make the URL shorter using bitly thinking surely that was the problem…but no that wasn’t the problem either. So now even though I don’t have time, I’m blogging…because I need to explain why I am suddenly going to place some random images up on my blog.
All this Technology is making me numb…or is it dumb? So here I go…I will up load all the random images I hope to have appear in my Indiegogo campaign page…I will attach a whole bunch of links to my page taking all you readers to all these fabulous websites I have mentioned above. Some I hate, KICKSTARTER, and some I don’t hate yet…INDIEGOGO, and OMG we are having a brown out??? Or did we blow a fuse….please someone take me away!!!
Okay here goes nothing…if this does not give these pictures URLs? I don’t know what to do.
thanx so much for the follow Brenda. i love your stuff. The little dolls are so cool! You were at FIT. I live in NYC, but am self taught. Taking a photo class now, which is interesting at ICP.
One of those little dolls can be yours if you contribute at the Covergirl Venus Level on my Indiegogo campaign…( blushing ) I’m in pitch mode what can I say…http://bit.ly/dietersunite BTW I know alot of self taught artists whose work I just love. It doesn’t take schooling to make you a good artist…it takes doing!
