Witness me! I purchased only the yarn I need to finish a sweater and did not fill up my cart to get “free” shipping like a well-trained little consumer. Even with $6 S&H and 10% sales tax, the total squeaked in just under $20. Maybe all these squares will actually be a sweater by next winter.1
Every new visible crack in the publishing infrastructure inspires me to move one of my eggs to a new basket. Accordingly, I’ve added a Payhip store to my direct sales options. Still only the same old ebooks there for now, but I’m ghost-administering a workshop through Payhip’s course platform and taking notes on how I can make better use of those features, so that’s a possibility for the distant future if I ever have a fraction of the influence of people who don’t write their own books and therefore can’t manage their own how-to-write workshops.
I also finally finished setting up Stripe as a payment option at both Payhip and Ko-Fi, for those who believe that option is any less evil than PayPal.1
I won’t be doing a year-end recap. I don’t particularly enjoy spewing negativity into the world and can’t put a positive spin on another terrible year in a long line of terrible years1, so let’s just bury this fucker and salt the earth.
