Blog Carnival -- New Year's Goals for my Shop



I'm not very good at resolutions. Unless I make them very tiny, I don't usually stand a chance of keeping them. This year, though, I'm picking a tiny resolution that will hopefully make a big difference in my shop. This will be the year of the Photo.

Once a week (at least), I resolve to load one photo into Gimp and coax it into looking a little more professional. After all, my work is quality, and my pictures should be doing a better job of showing it. With luck, maybe sales will pick up, and people will have a better idea of what my products are like.

yes, photos are king...and queen. I need to reshoot some of my photos too. I'm going to look up what Gimp is all about. Thanks for the link, and the carnival post! {:-Deb

One of my goals is to make friends with my numerous photo editing software. :) So far, so good. I have a hard time keeping to huge goals as well, maybe because they are so overwhelming? Well, great blog post and good luck keeping to your 2009 goal!

From what I hear, good pictures are a key to success. You've chosen a great, and manageable goal. Thanks for the inspiration!

Great goal. Pictures are so important when folks cannot see it for themselves in person.
