Booooooom Reader Submissions: March

march-submissions-600

March is here so that means it’s time for a new monthly reader submission post! Thanks once again to everyone who submitted work last month to the February Reader Submissions post. For anyone out there who would like to be considered for a feature, these monthly posts are the best way to submit your work to us!

Thanks again to everyone for up-voting work you like and leaving the positive comments to each other. These posts continue to be the most viewed articles on our site so even if your work is not a fit for Booooooom it still gets lots of exposure – a quick post can definitely send some traffic to your own websites.

Please share your work here this month. The comments allow images to be attached so make sure post an image along with a link to your website.

 

Submission guidelines:

1. Please don’t flood the comments with a dozen images, just post 1 image that represents your best work along with 1 link.

2. If you see good work posted by someone upvote it so it appears at the top. This is not just a nice thing to do, it helps me see what work you actually like.

3. You can/should also encourage people who are sharing good work here! Comment on their posts and let them know you like what they’re doing. I really want to foster a community here, and this is a simple way you can connect with other people making work.

4. Keep in mind your post may not show up right away because it has an image attached. It may need to be manually approved first so don’t freak out and post a million times, once is enough.

The video clips below will either get you stoked or make you want to give up skating. I guess this is what happens when you teach a fetus how to ollie.
