Laziness binds me
I want to find some way to easily connect my Pixelpost uploads to here – bhalash.com – but laziness constricts me. I already make uploads to three separate sites: Misadventures at 720nm, Flickr and Redbubble. Effectively pushing out a fourth separate update is really pushing the bounds of personal ingenuity. I would personally love to daisy-chain Tumblr-> Pixelpost-> Redbubble, but I have a feeling that click-throughs would drop off by an order of magnitude to each subsequent site. If I directly connected Tumblr->Redbubble for the purposes of selling prints then I would render my pretty photoblog (and honestly my main site) superfluous.
I think that maybe Redbubble works against me in this regard. For an otherwise wonderful site whose role is to facilitate the purchase of prints, the sharing options are miserable. I can link to my Twitter, link to my Facebook or email a link back to the site. Still though, I seem to have options, even if they are technically ‘hacks.’
Another option I have is to swap URLs around: Move this blog to blog.bhalash.com and make 720.bhalash.com the showcase site at bhalash.com.
Watch this space.
