I took today off. I'm glad but feeling really grumpy. It's the running, which still isn't going really well.
Race is in 9 days.

But! That is no matter. I'll get it.
This is the awesome thing I mentioned yesterday:
New Site
(clicky!)

I found a way to pull together all the Internet Things I do - Twitter|Flickr|Tumblr|LJ|Etsy (in process)
So, everything updates my site within a few hours, depending on the speed of the APIs in question. But that's fine because it works. Additionally, you can follow any portion and comment however and I can respond on them. It's easy.

I'm still figuring out the best way to sell high quality prints easily, a fight really between Etsy and Fotomoto. Leaning to etsy at the moment. But, whatevs.

Go! Look! Tell me what you think.
Note: some fonts may look different on older computers and browsers.

Current Mood: okay okay

Maybe, mean I don't expose my real name or email address anywhere. So it is me but not really me, right? It does make it harder for people to find me by name, though. So... I dunno.

Lastly: it looks especially nice on the iPad in landscape :)

My lj icon? Go for it. If you mean the site's favicon, I can send it to you.

I'm slowly giving up on Etsy.

Why?
tyskkvinna From: tyskkvinna Date: August 13th, 2010 10:15 pm (UTC) (Link)
Because the way they've shifted things in the past year requires you to do all of your marketing/advertising yourself (which is fine), but means that I have to constantly pay to list an item or renew it when it sells, or when it expires (every 3 months I think). So I have to put all my normal advertising work into a site that is not mine, on a url that is not mine, on a site design that I do not control, and pay to keep it all up there, and process it on their system (which is paypal). Maybe it's because 90% of my sales on Etsy thus far have come from people I found on the internet in other channels. But it has just been feeling like too much work on somebody else's system when I can do it all myself, keep more of the profit, AND use as many payment gateways - integrated - that I want.

What's your experience been with Etsy?

In what context...? I have no complaints, really. You have to market yourself to get any sales, but that's to be expected.

Nice and simple. I wish I could filter the Twitter stream better but eh? I'll just stop botching about work so much.

See, now that's the professional look of a real photographer's website. I could stand to learn things like this some day.

I'd love to know how you're piping everything through. I need to revamp my site, too, and this looks nifty.

Also, I'd be happy to share the place that does my print fulfillment (yay, drop-shipping!) if you go the Etsy route -- I've actually had more sales via Etsy than via my standalone site. A lot of people have more confidence in the Etsy brand.
