So I have been pondering a whole lot. I am having to reassess my whole business because I am simply not making enough to sustain me and the funds that I had that I saved up from my previous jobs are dwindling (it took me more googling than I care to admit to find the correct spelling for that word! I originally spelt it like so: didling). If you think about it it’s a weird word, it has wind in the middle of it!
Anyway back to being serious or just not silly. I find that I put a lot of time in thinking about content that I am going to post on my instagram and I have realised that I have sort of become too engrossed in being active on social media. And the reason I have just realised that I do this, is because I feel comfortable with it. It’s an almost tangible way of me feeling like I’m doing something and I have success on it because I have lovely followers and it is so rewarding. However I need to push myself more in regards to approaching shops to stock my prints and t-shirt, booking markets and just generally finding more streams of income because alas instagram doesn’t pay.
So you might be seeing less post by me but I am still here and trying to make Qitiji successful in the long run.
If you know of any shops/cafes that you feel might stock my art please let me know or even if you’ve got some tips or advice for me please email me on firstname.lastname@example.org.
Thank you for all your support,
