An update on some new information.
There is a problem with PayPal. It has come to my attention that there is a group that call themselves Anonymous, which are now famous for hacking into sensitive places, that are at this time warning people who use twitter, that they are about to do some damage to PayPal. After I find this out just last night, I decided I am closing my account even though I don't feel I'm in danger since I have yet to share any banking information with PayPal, but I'm bothering to mention this, as I ask anyone that reads my blog to seriously consider removing any accounts you may have with PayPal. I don't think there is much time. From what I have read it sounds as if anyone will be lucky they have been given a warning at all. I don't know what kind of damage this group of people can do, but I sure wouldn't want to find out.
So, since Paypal is out, at least until more information comes out about what damage might be done, and if the media will have a story on this, I would feel better to go ahead, and look into BillPay. I understand I can use this program through my bank account just as easily as PayPal, but how well the public likes to use it, I don't know. This set up shouldn't take me long, but I am waiting more, to have my website set up with the work I want to start selling original. I plan the coming week-end to pick those out. I also found that my teddy bear artworks are not where I thought they were, or they would have been added to the website by now. I'll have to do some searching in some older paper files of works put away for the future.
I have a decent digital camera now, and plan to take photographs of all those original art works I shared for a while, and then removed from my site. They are too large for scanning, so they have to be added through photographs.
On a side note:
I've mentioned in my previous blogging, that for a couple of years I have struggled with several broken back teeth, and infections. Praying this battle is soon over, as I may receive some coverage in the next month for dental work.
To keep this all straight in my old noggin, my list of plans as follow.
Starting the last week-end of July:
Search, find, then scan teddy bear artworks.
Take photographs of larger original artworks.
Organize, then prep for downloading.
Downloading all art adding onto website.
First week of August:
Adding the artwork to printing site.
Setting up BillPay account.
Adding BillPay to website.
BillPay, and adding this to my website is new to me. I'm not sure if I add it for each
separate artwork, or if I just need a single spot for it. Maybe I have to consider something like serial numbers to each art piece? I may have to investigate a little over the next few days on that.
I really like the current theme of my website. I changed it a few months back from the dark black, but I think this Summer like light, and dark brown colors suits me. I will keep it for awhile.
That's the plan for now. I'm happy to take some bigger steps forward to sell my work.
You take care now.
