Mondays are usually new beginnings, with tons of new things to be done on the tail end of the week it follows. This Monday, even more so, and not just because I moved the bulk of my belongings over the weekend.
Today is a one-day offering of a three-pack of Analog Impulse note cards on Etsy. For five bucks, it’s a three-pack of the cards with standard shipping included for U.S. orders. Some people have asked about smaller servings of the cards, like single and three-packs. So I’m accommodating, and trying to figure out if it’s a efficient way of selling online. Etsy, as an outlet, hasn’t been very effective for me. Pretty much all of my sales have been through the Analog Impulse site, but I don’t want to walk away from other options like Etsy just yet. And it may not help Etsy sales, but if you miss the one-day Etsy deal, tomorrow is the Tuesday Trio – essentially the same deal as on Etsy, but without free shipping thrown in.
Today is also the one-weekiversary of the first post on Scenes & Words – a neat little project conceived by Spencer Lewis that pairs writers with photographers to put up (for now) a weekly post that contains words and images together. I was honored to be asked when it came up, and the results so far have been invigorating for me. We currently have two photog/writer teams. My shutterbug partner Dawn and I co-authored the inaugural post last week, and Spencer and Kenny have followed it up with today’s offering. New posts go up every Monday, and we’d love a little company over there. Please check it out.
Even if you weren’t on my holiday card list this year, I hope the season has gone well for you and the coming year is an exceptional one.
‘m looking for found a few good micro-investors.
UPDATE (10/24/10): The cards are out now, and you can purchase, or find out more about them here.
I’ve been working on a modest line of note cards that feature handwritten haiku on the front. I’ve fleshed out the designs, and I’m in the process of making them a reality. To go further, I’ve realized it might help to have a little investment support.
If you’d like to become an investor on any level, please let me know. You don’t have to be willing to write a four or five-figure check (though it certainly wouldn’t hurt). Anyone who chips in $25 or more will receive, at the very least, a sampling of the cards before they are available for sale. Depending on the investment, I’m willing to discuss other arrangements as well.
