Minimalism and Kindle Unlimited

I've been thinking in terms of minimalism the last few years. I'm not an overnight convert! But, over the last few years I've slowly been getting rid of old books. These days I read almost exclusively from the Kindle Unlimited program at Amazon. About the only paperback books buy these days are related to my learning another language. I still go to a local used book store from time to time. But, I tend to bring the books back rather than keep them around.

I didn't find selling any of my books helpful at all. The last time I gathered up some of books in great shape, the place offered me $1. I took it, so it could pay for 1/2 of the gasoline it took me to drive to their bookstore. I don't have enough books to worry about trying to make money selling them. I just give books to the library and let them sell them. It's my way of giving a little something back to the community.

Extreme photo cropping

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…

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.
