Once upon a time…well, a year ago, I fired up a private facebook group for junkers called Your Funky Junk.
I could see a growing need for an environment for all to equally share their junk creations, especially for non bloggers. Bloggers have a platform, but non bloggers don’t.
But… I hesitated.
I mean, what if no one came? Ugh… Fear of failure reared it’s ugly head yet again. And I listened.
But slowly over time, folks were finding the private board. I just didn’t let them in. Because I honestly didn’t know what to do.
I continued to recieve attempts of show and tells on Facebook, but they were hard for others to spot. They were ‘hidden’ from the main thread. I just didn’t find that a very user friendly way to share, especially for those that didn’t have big, pretty blogs.
So a good year later, (that would be yesterday) I did something about it.
I opened up the group!
You can bet I sat on pins and needles as I threw out an invite on Facebook. But slowly, the forum started to fill. 25… 50… 100…. woa… 150… no way… 250…. crazytalk!
As of now? In one day the group has sprung to 350+. Obviously the need was there all along!
This one’s for anyone. If you have a computer, and a desire to get creative with junk, I encourage you to check it out!
You don’t have to be a pro photographer. You don’t have to be a pro anything. Just come as you are. If you have a will to create but don’t know how, I guarantee you, once you see these junk projects scroll in front of you, you’ll be jumping out of your seat, anxious to give it a try yourself!
The group requires approval to get in, but no worries, just ask and we’ll getcha in!
Join Your Funky Junk, a facebook group for junkers!
Cuz I can’t wait to see your junk.
Update: membership is currently at 1,500+! I’d say junk is a HIT!
