Product Sales on Redbubble by Product Type

Tue, 18 Apr 2017 16:58:30 +0000

As a part of doing my income taxes, I go through my sales on Redbubble for the tax year and total up the commissions I was paid (aka the artist's margin). This year while doing that it struck me that I had never really thought about what products people were buying - instead focusing on what artwork/photography was selling.

Buying A New Computer

Mon, 14 Nov 2016 22:36:45 +0000

I write this post on my Dell XPS 17 laptop which I purchased in the summer of 2011. It has served as my main computer for everyday tasks and has served me reasonably well except for its failing hardware.
