|How has zazzle changed your life? *|| |
What was supposed to be my retirement has turned into a full-time obsession. I'm still trying to decide if that's a good or bad thing. On the positive side, I'm learning about design and marketing, two skills I really need to acquire to better sell my photography, be it on Zazzle or elsewhere. On the negative side, I'm not doing all the hiking and traveling I though I'd be doing once I was retired, and I'm definitely missing out on those the naps in the hammock that I was so looking forward to!

|What advice would you share with a friend or family member if they wanted to join zazzle? *|
Run away, and don't look back! What? Oh, serious advice? A matter of perspective, that, but OK. You'll need to learn a five things to have a successful store.

|What do you do when you are not zazzling? *|| |
I like to hike, preferable with my wife and our dog, but sometimes just by myself. We have mountains, desert, and riparian habitat in our area, so there's no lack of places to go to get away from the computer and life's other distractions. I invariably take my camera with me for I love to photograph landscapes and nature in general.
|How many stores do you have on zazzle? *|| |
|Which do you prefer and why? 1 Mega Store or Several Niche Stores *|| |
I think it depends on what kind of merchandise one sells. For myself, I do nature and travel photography. The two mesh together nicely so I think one store is sufficient for products bearing images of these two subjects.
My other store is completely unrelated to photography, which is why it's not part of my main store. It's a true niche store, containing multiple designs on a single type of product. I created it so I could have some fun with it. And yes, I do make sales in this store! There's always a market for what you sell. You just have to direct it toward your store!
