Today, I was tickled and surprised to find hundreds of likes for my Polyvore set, above. I was tickled because it always feels good to be liked (especially for how my design brain works.) I was surprised because I usually get, maybe, 3 or 5 likes per set -- or for an especially unique set that's been on-site for a while, I maybe get 12 likes over the course of a month. Or year. :)
Peeps had not only liked my set in droves, but also sent messages of "Congrats!" and "Good job!" So I dug around to learn why, and I was flattered to discover that Polyvore itself had chosen this a "Top Fashion Set" for the day -- so fun!
I don't Polyvore to be popular -- though, as I wrote, it's always nice to be noticed. The truth is, I play stylist & designer there because it's easy good fun and it's fantasy, and because (as I wrote a few posts back) it gets my creative juices flowing in a way that's non-pressured and free.
Do you Polyvore?
