The Future is More Content: Jeff Bezos, Robots and High Volume Publishing

I read the The Future is More Content: Jeff Bezos, Robots and High Volume Publishing the other day.

This paragraph stood out...
"We will all need to make smarter use of curators, those people that read widely, that keep up-to-date on specific issues and share articles and views with the rest of us. These people may curate on blogs, content hubs or simply share articles via Twitter. No one can read everything, we will need to rely more than ever on others reading and sharing articles. Teams will have to learn how to effectively leverage their members to curate and filter content."

I never was all that interested in a typical theme blog. There isn't really any one topic that I'm interested in reading or writing about exclusively. I like arts and crafts. I like languages. I live travel. I like photography. And... the list goes on. I don't even enjoy reading blogs about one theme.

When someone invented Pinterest, I was thinking ... that's kind of what I've been doing with my blog. I have been posting anything and everything for a long, long time. I'm curating the Internet in small doses.

If you find something you like among the products I talk about, I hope you support that artist. I do have my own online store that I promote, but it works out that I am a benefactor of other independent artists and small businesses.

The ideas discussed in this video brought to mind one mistake I see photographers making when they're selling their photos on custom products in the Zazzle marketplace. There can be a tendency of new (and some experienced) shopkeepers to want to showcasing their entire photo on the custom products available at Zazzle rather than fill the design area available.

Below is an example of what a rounded corner mouse pad would look like if I fit the photo to the mousepad. It would have large white borders.



Below is what the mouse pad looks like when the image fills the entire design area.

Cropping, even extreme cropping, can be our friend. Cropping off some of the Lake Tahoe shoreline doesn't take away from the subject of this photo. We can still see the blue water and shoreline. But, large white borders at the top and bottom definitely distracts…

Design your own personal shirts online at Zazzle.
What is it that you love? Let the world know what you love the most with this fully customizable tee. The "Fill in the Blank" text below the "I Heart" design can be changed.


As you can see in the image below, the size of the heart design can change if needed to match the added text.




I just got done watching Michael Phelps get his 8 for 8 gold medals.
