Life of Art SitRep #16

A series to mark what I did to further my pursuit of a life sustained by my art each week. Committing to these posts is a commitment to action, because to have content for them, I have to do something. Every week. If you have any sort of goal you're pursuing, feel free to share your efforts of the past week in the comments. Or encouragement, that's good too.
This week, I
  • Shot 303 photos.
  • Did 5 loads of Legos. I know it sounds wrong, but it's oh so right.
  • Tweeted, FB'd Memorial Weekend Sale info:
  • 50% off posters
    20% off postage
    at my shop until June 1, 11:59 pm PT with code MEMORIALSALE
    (Sale details)
  • Added bulk discount, promo code page info to shop page on TTaT.
  • Added bulk discount, promo code page to product info and card folders. Revised prints & posters folder a little.
  • Revised shop intro to include link to product info folders.
  • Continued to mull over my store URL, its name, possible site URLs and got some useful feedback.

    For simplicity and consistent branding, it makes sense to have my store's name and URL match. This potentially means setting up a new zazzle account because profile names (from which they create your URL) are unchangeable. It's still doable at this stage albeit inconvenient. Or I could change my store's name to "Claire Skinner Photos" which is my current URL sans spaces.

    I'm not entirely sold on making my name the brand. Thinking ahead, the dot com of my name is taken and I prefer not to add underscores or dashes to it. So there's also that. One thing I'm also conscious of from my blog is the benefit of keeping URL's short. I did not have that in mind when I named Taller Than Average Tales.

    Are you dissuaded from typing in URLs of sites with long names? How long is long? Any other thoughts on URLs, store names, branding, and the like?

What did you do to pursue the life you want this week?
