Your Name/Shop Name *
How long have you been an online shopkeeper with a POD shop. *
6 months to 1 year(late 2011 early 2012)
What does "SEO" mean to you? And what is the most important thing you do for SEO? *
I'm using Pingler to ping my shops when they have new products, and gremIn to automate my tweets. After I enter a tweet, I copy it to gremIN so it will recur. I also manually enter my new products on my Facebook pages.

I need to do a lot more, including post on my exisiting blogs and starting one just for Zazzle, but time constraints make it difficult. I belong to LinkedIn and Posterous but rarely use them.

How do you promote your shops? *
  • blogger
  • twitter
  • facebook
  • google+
  • pinging
  • pinterest
What types of products do you love to sell? *
I love intense designs in high color and I love abstraction. So that's what I enjoy selling. I like the way many of my designs look on a variety of products, from case and gift boxes to kitchen items. I especially enjoy making pillows and messenger bags, as their larger size allows for more of the layered detail of a design to show through.
How many different POD's do you offer designs on *
What do you enjoy doing when not working on your POD sites? *
Hiking, swimming, kayaking, photography and abstract painting in watercolors or acrylics. I also love to write and have 4 young adult novel manuscripts waiting to be re-visited. But doing art takes all my available time, right now.
Do you prefer to work *
at a desk in silence
what is the best advice you would give someone just starting out? *
Do it for the joy of it. If you obsess about outcomes or lack patience, you won't be happy. Stay with your creative flow and move around the obstacles in good humor. Easier said than done, of course...

I do love the journey. It's a great adventure and I think when all is said and done, my lifeline.
