something worth advertising. if only i had never gambled i could have even advertised the mugs.
The MUGS must sell themselves, ok? It's totally critical that you spend zero on marketing until you're actually earning money from them. At that point you can buy advertising.
dvertising anything else is pissing away money because nothing else makes any money. You've shut off any revenue stream to yourself since five years ago when you quit stickernation. Making sales is ancient history to you now? So fix that at least. You'll be selling something new and original based on your art, there is nothing sad about it. Plus you will GET REVENGE and BRING IT BACK and all those things that you say you want to do.
Finally, I love typing into my Zetabook. Putting a laptop on my actual lap is a productivity breakthrough, maybe?
