New year with a new venture

I recently posted a photo of the Toronto skyline that I took this past summer on my other social site. Several friends pointed out how great the photo was, which I appreciated.

One friend, in particular, suggested that I sell the photo to the city. One thing led to another. I have started my own Etsy site. The idea is to earn a bit of money for photos that I have taken.

Anyone who knows me will understand that I am not the entrepreneurial type. If I were, I would be rich and would have quit my regular job by now. Rather, I like sharing my photos for folks to view. If they want to buy them, that's fine. Otherwise, this gig is more to figure out how much interest there is out there to buy pretty photos.

I don't know how lucrative this venture will be. Frankly, it's more of a hobby for me. Still, it's exciting to do something different and set this photo site up. It's a new learning experience. We'll see where this path takes me.


  1. God knows you could use all the extra money you can get (I remember credit card issues), so if using your hobby can get you some extra well, good for you.
    But sharing without getting something in return is somehow even more rewarding don't you agree?


    1. You raise a question that I constantly think about. I am pretty happy sharing my photos with my friends. However, I'm curious as to whether I can indeed earn a few dollars and put them towards paying off my debt. I don't know unless I try this venture. If it doesn't work for me, I can always close my shop down. So, I don't truly know the answer until I go through this whole journey.
