I just created a video for the first time in quite a while for my YouTube account.

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).
