my thoughts for today

black and white dragonfly
still my number one post, with 216 all time views
my home page/archives has over 4000 views, but…
that’s where you are right now.
So why would I count that?

Not sure if you noticed, but on my site I have a new widget…Holly’s Images. These images will – eventually – be available for downloads and possibly even prints, through my site. Meaning, you don’t or won’t have to click out. This will be another option, so to speak. I pretty much just wanted to see what it looks like, for now.

But before I can do anything, I need to upgrade my site. Right now, I’m in the premium plan which doesn’t allow me to sell and has a very small photo/media library. I’d like to do more, without worrying how much space I have. I can collect payments, but not sell anything with the plan I’m in. It’s not that much more to take the next step, but I just need to make sure that it’s something I should do, if I can afford it…and, it looks like I’ll only be able to sell in the United States. But, taking the next step should pay for itself, I hope. But I’m not here to talk about money…

If I move up two steps, I’ll be able to sell all over the world. I think what I’m going to do is step up in baby steps. I’m sure it will be worth it to take this next step. I just wish that my selling capabilities weren’t limited to US only. Is paypal the same way? Just a thought that crossed my mind…

One step at a time…right?

I’ll be starting with downloads…small, medium and large, with prices set accordingly. One thing I did notice with the next “plan” is that I’ll have much more storage space. Eventually, I think I will make prints available…postcards, greeting cards, or just regular 8×10 prints (or smaller). But that is going to have to wait, the printing anyway. Making downloads available is easy…the printing part, not so much.

Do I print myself?
If I do my own printing
How do I handle shipping?
I’ve never printed a bad photo
nor would I sell one that isn’t good
so that’s not an issue

Of course, there’s always the option of contacting me to get info, if you so choose.

Thank You!

I also wanted to take this time to thank you! I wouldn’t be able to do this without you! So, as a thank you, here are some images (below)…free! If you’d like to use one, or two…or what ever. Just right click on the photo, and click on copy image. (I’ll have to check and make sure, and edit if I need to. . . it looks like this does work – copy/paste – but you can only paste into wordpress. If you know a way…)

more images available – for free – at free images
The link above will take you to my page, free images. Which I need to update!

Anyway, there are nearly 1,600 of you following me! 1,574 to be exact. I’ve really been meaning to do this for a while, but things have been moving so fast…I can barely keep track.

by the numbers…

wordpress: 611
twitter: 906
face book: 53
email: 4

I’m not going to get into where you all come from, that would take me forever! But I know Holly’s World has been seen all over the world. Which was my intended goal…I couldn’t just limit myself to the US, or just English speaking countries or places.

That would be so unfair
To keep you from seeing what I am up to!

hmm…what else is there to share? Things are pretty quiet here at the moment…I need to do a final cleaning of my pool and close it down, so if anyone wants to come over and help…just kidding! I also need to drain the hot water tank. This is to get rid of the sludge in the bottom, and helps to keep the tank running efficiently, longer. It’s not going to be loo long before I need to replace it, it’s getting to be about that time. But for now, draining it will do.

That’s about all I can think of at the moment. Besides, I think I’ve rambled on enough…

hope you have a great day!
thanks for stopping by!!

Have the confidence of a naked toddler
wearing a t-shirt on his head.

take care
stay safe
much love

En esos momentos donde fotografiando “paramos” el tiempo, busco expresar mi ilusión por este lenguaje, mi deseo es que ellas hablen por mí.
