So, I was invited to this charity event to help raise money for centers for abused women and children. They wanted me to sell my photos.
By "I was invited," I mean, Maicah asked me to do it, and I thought, "what the Hell?" Anyway, it turns out it was a little arts and crafts fair on the outskirts of St.George that about two people knew about. Almost everyone that showed up went there to watch their kids and grandchildren dance in the adjoining gym. My point is, none of us sold much of anything. I sold a grand total of one photo and made a sweet four dollars! 30% of which went to charity.
Anyway, so this woman that runs a website in St.George approached me with her card and told me she liked my photos. She told me her website offers some free advertising and then suggested I set up an online store and start doing other things to put myself "out there." So I thought, "what the Hell?" So I set up new e-mail and DA accounts dedicated to selling my photographs and promoting the two shops I set up, shamelessly:www.etsy.com/shop/PhotosbyAlys…
I'm still figuring all of this out so I'm pretty sure a lot of the stuff I've done with them is sort of retarded but what do you expect of a work in progress? I haven't sold anything yet, but I've finally started getting more views and good comments, so I decided it was time to let you guys know about it and to link my accounts.
So, the purpose of my story is to let you know that all my new deviations are on my new account, which may soon become my primary account. I'm also going to start watching a bunch of you from that account. Although, I will probably keep this one, because it has all my old photographs and I'd miss it if I started feeling nostalgic.
