Have a Snack, sell your ebooks
Let’s face it, we Philippines-based creators have always had difficulty selling our products online because so many of our potential customers simply don’t have or don’t want to use credit cards. I’ve gotten a few emails from my readers telling me they couldn’t buy my ebooks, a thing that confused me a lot of the time because I thought it meant Amazon or Gumroad or whatever platform they’re trying to buy from wasn’t accepting their credit cards. It turns out, they meant they literally couldn’t buy my books. Because they didn’t have credit cards.
I canceled my book … sort of
I thought my readers on Radish would appreciate having a free story. And some of them did. As of writing this, FMMBB on Radish has gotten 180k reads (about 3.75x the 48k reads on Wattpad, which was a surprise, since Wattpad has way more active users than Radish). However, while the reader comments on Wattpad has been lovely, the past few weeks nearly all the reader comments on the story on Radish have been complaints about how I was updating the story so slowly. How I should be posting more than one update a week.
Revisiting old spaces
I have a Tumblr account I hardly use. I think about it once in a while but I never made plans for what to do with it. It’s work having to maintain social media sites and because of the current Twitter meltdown, I’m already on two new ones I have yet to post on.
