Submit a Remix
Mixup is all about bringing people like you together to showcase your talent, meet new people, build a bigger audience, and have fun.
This site is like Open Mic Night – it gives you free license to do absolutely anything you want to do, from simple and silly to complex and amazing. So grab a friend, come up with an idea, and tell me what you want to do. I’ll review every submission and put up any that I think sound interesting, both for your audience and mine.
What’s In It For You
- Build relationships with interesting and talented people
- Showcase your fun and creative side
- Exposure to new audiences
- Traffic boost to your site(s)
- Links back to your site(s)
- You get to make the web a better place and have fun at the same time
What You Can Do
- Bloggers: choose another blogger in your niche to go head-to-head with on a fun topic or question, asked (and commented on) by a third party
- Bloggers II: same as above, but instead of going up against another blogger, give the opportunity to one of your readers to be featured with you in a fun competition
- Photographers: get a group together in the same city to each shoot the same subject in your own style; bring your audiences together to admire all your work
- Photographers II: compare/contrast styles on a given theme
- Artists: choose a theme, and both of you create your own interpretation
- Singers: each of you cover the same song in your own style
- Singers II: get together to collaborate on something new
- Fashionistas: give us your take on good style at a great price
- Writers: have fun writing with or against each other on a given topic
- Business People: do something silly/fun/creative with or against each other; show a side of yourself that your audience doesn’t usually get to see
- YouTubers: challenge someone to a two-minute video prank; see who can get the bigger laugh
There are so many different things you can do with this platform, guys – you are limited only by your imagination. No matter who you are or what you do, there are hundreds of ways you can use Mixup to your advantage.
Submit Your Idea
I’ll listen to any idea you have for a remix page, and I’ll put up anything that I feel will engage audiences and add value to the web. Before you email me, see how many of these tips you can check off:
- Creativity: I don’t care if you’re a true celebrity, “internet famous,” or just started your first blog yesterday – creativity is king. If you have an interesting idea that’s well executed, you’re going up on the site.
- Execution: Ideas are great, but execution is key. At this point you don’t have to have all the work done, but you should know who you’re going to tap to do the remix with you, and how you’re going to pull it off.
- Commitment: If you submit a great idea, and get a couple other people (myself included) to go in on it with you, follow through with what’s expected of you. These remixes usually involve a few people, and you don’t want to be the one to get a bad rep for not following through. You do your part, and we’ll do ours.
- Fun: There is certainly room for more serious remixes, and there will be some competition on this site, but it’s meant to be all in good fun. This is a laid-back type of place, where people go to relax their mind and look for cool stuff. It’s entertainment.
- Sharing: I want to showcase your talent to the world, and I will do my part. Please be generous to the other people and projects you see on this site. If you like something, share it. It helps them out and shows that you respect their effort. People will show you the same courtesy as well, and your work will go out to a wider audience.
