Am I Doing This Wrong?


I just read an interesting post from Kristen Lamb all about blogging, and how as an author, I should have a shopping cart off to the side where you can buy my books directly. It makes perfect sense and yet it overwhelms me. The first issue is that I would have to move to a paid website. I’d also have to transfer all of my previous posts, and I’d have to figure out how to set up this proposed shopping cart. That is a little daunting for this tired old brain of mine.

I’ve tried proceeding by the theory that slow and steady wins the race, but it may be time to concede to defeat. Perhaps this summer when my more techy daughter returns, I might have to give this old blog an update. What do you think? Would you be more inclined to shop if there was a cart off to the side?

    I don’t know about the shopping cart unless you have several products that you offer for sale and are personally stocking them and fulfilling the orders. Sounds a bit much to me. I think you should have a direct link to Amazon and wherever else you sell product and that should suffice as well as save you a lot of hassle.
