A few years ago – I can’t even remember when – I requested an invitation for Amazon Merch. Back then, it was every POD designer’s dream to directly upload designs to Amazon and sell t-shirts through the vast Amazon Marketplace. It was way before copycats nagged us with constantly ripping off our work.

Anyway, I had requested an invitation which never got granted. So a few weeks ago I stumbled across it once more and signed up. A few days later they welcomed me and asked me about my tax information. Lucky me had requested an ITIN years ago to avoid tax reduction on Smashwords and therefore, my w8ben forms are very easy to fill out.

When I logged in I was eager to upload all my work but… arrgh, they only accept PNG format with dimensions of EXACTLY 4500 x 5400 pixels *sigh* That means I have to cut my digital art, hope it still looks good and convert it to PNG format. Not a thing to do in 2 minutes. But I accepted the challenge and do have the first uploads running for review πŸ™‚

I’d really apprechiate you checking out my “brand” Christine aka stine1 on Amazon.com and leave a comment or two. Or maybe you like it enough to even share? Who knows, please let me know and I will repay the favor *thumbs up*

 

In the future, you can expect some tips and tricks regarding Amazon Merch and the Marketplace, not only about copyright infringements and how to fight them. So stay tuned!

During our Caribbean Cruise a few years ago – way before hurricane Irma destroyed a lot – we have enjoyed one lazy day on the island Antigua. It was one of the most beautiful stops during the cruise, really worth a second – longer – visit!

I am uploading a whole series to EyeEm and GettyImages, why not check them out?

See the whole series on Getty.co.uk.

So while updating old blog posts from 2012, I came up with this idea and hashtag:

#blastfromtheblogpast

Why not interact a bit and see how far we will be coming?

Please share your oldest blog posts with this hashtag on all sorts of social media and check out what others are posting πŸ™‚

Have fun!

You may also link to your social media or blog posts related to #blastfromtheblogpost here and I will share them!

In an attempts to please you, the readers, I will try to update old blog posts πŸ˜‰ Since I had deleted over 300 posts linking to former Polyvore, my blog has been thinned out a LOT. Therefore, some redesigning and construction work is necessary. Renovation, you might say.

And since I realized that older posts are now bringing in visitors and no one likes dead links and garbage dumps, I need to make these more attractive and brush ’em up.

I hope you like it and that it will increase your viewing pleasure.

Have you ever done anything like this? Or are you the type of blogger who does not care about older posts?
Shame on me, never did anything like this before…
