"White Roses" --- SOLD
My husband is a software engineer by trade and lately he has been creating an online application for me to track the business side of my art: in the beginning, where paintings are, what's available, what's sold, how much I made last month, last year, and then later, what my expenses are, how much I owe for taxes, etc. He's even integrating it with Blogger and Ebay so that my daily painting posts are automatically pulled in from my blog and the auction status and latest bid amount for each painting is loaded from eBay, which means very little to no data entry!
This is a big improvement from the way I was tracking this stuff in an excel spreadsheet. It's getting to be so cool actually, that we thought perhaps other people would be interested in using it too. I thought I'd put out a kind of feeler to see who else would find this useful. We are thinking we would charge a montly subscription of $9.95. So if you're reading this and you're interested in being a beta tester, please write to me so I can get a count. Thanks!
