ALL THE NETWORKING WE MUST DO

I just spent more than an hour updating my Flickr account which I had left stagnant for more than a month now. Really all these social networking sites, communities and marketing are just taking a whole chunk of my time when I can produce more artworks or accessories.

How many sites are you involved in?

For me let me take a headcount...
-DeviantArt is the only art community I'm in now 
-My website has been around since 1998 (geocities to atspace to a domain)
-Ebay (not for the past few months)
-Blog
-Threadless

For my beading shop
-Singapore Yahoo auctions
-8 local directories, 2 of which I constantly update my notice board
-That Slide widget I always update too

Recreation groups:
- 2 more deviantArt club accounts for Tenchu-clan & Studio Ghibli
- 1 yahoo club now semi-defunct but I still got my password
- My Yuzu fansite (which I really have no time to update since a year ago)

I'm sure I forgot some lol!!

Some places like Myspace and deviantArt I got tired and just lumped my two ventures together. hmm 17 places to visit just to promote online sales... might as well add 2 more -- FACEBOOK! Coming soon. I probably have joined Indie-something site too but I can't remember for what. My bookmark toolbar is really full lol. 2 browsers (Safari & Firefox) are used  so I don't have to keep logging in and out of different email accounts so much, I have 7 email accounts!!

Anyhow, my new ACEO below. It is nouveau-inspired and melocholic. Have a nice day updating & uploading =P

Wow! I'm tired out just reading all the promoting you do! I think your work is excellent and would sell itself just fine!!

Wow that is a lot but if I didn't work I'd probably be doing the same everyday. I only have Flickr and my blogspot blog. I have got stumbleupon to stumble shops I like (then when other people are searching stumbleupon these shops will come up and maybe a sale for them)

Oh I forgot to say I just love that ACEO, I always wish that I could draw so end up cheating by using rubberstamps.
