Thank you Lois!

I've had the idea for a long time (as part of defining my 'mix') - without any definite planning as to 'when'. Then a few days ago a RedBubble member replied to my comment to one of her photos from Beijing, referring to what for her was a defining sound of BJ (no longer heard)... and I remembered my little video and decided to get started right now.

Now I have to go and prepare and post some of my Beijing photos to RedBubble, and then link them together. (Learn how to, first, for the YT end.)

Meanwhile I'm familiarizing myself with the workings of deviantArt and selecting groups to join that my work (there) may fit into. There's some really awesome work around there, too.

I can see why someone might want both. YouTube is very much a better known and more accessible site. But they are very vanilla. One uncovered female nipple on a photo and your work will be pulled.

Deviant is much more forgiving about what it allows ... I don't know if there are any restrictions at all beyond legal ones, like child porn.

Yes, they do have strict rules (Loads of 'Policy' documents I actually read or skimmed through before finishing signing up), and a reporting system as well. Under-age nudity strictly forbidden, and 'adult' stuff needs to be flagged as 'not safe for work' or some such.

Not that I do any of that, but they do have rules, spelled out clearly.

I've now worked out my system how to cross-link between RedBubble and deviantArt for related images, and in place for the two I uploaded to DA so far. Gotta do some other stuff before I work out linking from YouTube - doing it the other way is easy from Redbubble: they have a special code for embedding a YT video.
