I promised I would make it a regular thing to blog about how much, or more accurately, how little we’re making from our creative endeavors. To that end, I present the report on our January earnings.
The numbers reflect our net earnings. In the case of Etsy sales that means less shipping and various selling fees. With regards to Midwinter, the net takes into account expenses for the booth, for getting to the convention, hotel costs, etc. On the plus side, we made almost three times what we did in December. On the down side, no one is getting rich off of this. I’d say we shouldn’t quit our day jobs, but …
We are closer to our goal of getting a new fan for the Jeep, though, almost halfway there. And we have a convention coming up in March that promises to be more lucrative. We’re only a month into this whole grand scheme, so I can’t really say if sticking to one or two large conventions a year is feasible. We may have to add in more events, or I might have to open up to commissions again. Or, we might have to put in a better effort to market our books, and finish the one that is in the works.
I did add a page to this site for e-book design services.
As always, we continue on. February is the shortest month and we’re making the most of it that we can. I’ll keep updating our monetary progress as the year unwinds.
