I’m trying to find new ways to get information to my readers. I have several ideas that I want to try out.
1. I’ve always wanted to have PDFs available here on the blog, so I’m trying that out today. I’ve created a one page PDF of the Anatolian motif that was a Freebie here last year. I’ve made it a PDF. If you want to help me try it out, just click on the link below. It opens as a PDF and you should be able to save it to your hard drive after it opens in a separate window. Let me know if there is a problem so I can try to troubleshoot.
2. I don’t know programming, so I doubt I could create an App for anyone to use. BUT, Apple just released a free App for the Macs (available from the App store on your Mac) called iBook Author. I’ve downloaded it and will do some playing with that over the next few weeks. If I can get that to work, I’ll try to register with the Apple iBookstore. That would enable me to write an ebook on adapting (it’s already started) and sell it through the iBookstore. This might be another way to sell my patterns as well. Is there any interest in that? Apple says that any books created this way will be viewable on the iPhone an iPad.
3. I’ll also look into Kindle to see if I would be able to sell patterns and books through Kindle as well. I have an older Kindle, so I don’t know what the new Kindle Fire can do. I don’t think you can enlarge the pages or photos on it, so it may not be the best solution. Are you interested?
Let me know your thoughts on these methods of presenting my information and patterns. I really want to know if this is something that you, my readers, would like. If you have other ideas, I’d love to hear them as well.
Thank you all!
