Decorate Your Desktop | October 2016 Wallpaper
We are a few days away from October and this weather is proving it to be true. Brrrr! It is definitely time to bring out the fall scarves, jackets, and boots!
As I mentioned in my Facebook post, I am thinking about switching things up for 2017 and possibly offering something new, in place of the Decorate your Desktops. With another little babe on the way, I want to make sure that my time is spent wisely. That being said, if people simply aren’t downloading and swapping out their desktop/mobile backgrounds, I don’t feel like it’s worth my time to continue doing them.
I have a few other options in mind that I thought maybe people may find more useful and inspiring. The first are Monthly Wall Prints. I’m thinking 5×7 and 8×10 hand-lettered wall prints with an inspirational quote or seasonal phrase of some type. For these wall prints, I would charge a small fee ($3-$5) to download + purchase through my Etsy shop. Once the small purchase is made, you then will be emailed a link to download the print and use to decorate your home, office, or give as a gift.
The second option would be a Monthly Greeting Card. These would lean more generic such as a “Just Because” card making it easy to give + use no matter your current situation. My thoughts behind a simple greeting card is that there is just so much hate and sadness in the world today, if I could somehow spread even a little bit of love and kindness, I want to. No matter how small it may seem. This option would be as easy as downloading, printing, and cutting the card…perfect little lunch-time break! Something so simple could really change a friend’s, neighbor’s, spouse’s, co-worker’s day around 🙂
The last option is to simply continue on with the Decorate Your Desktops. These would run exactly as they have, offering three wallpaper options for your desktop, mobile device, and/or iPad/Tablet.
Again, I want this to be beneficial for the both of us. I spend quite a bit of time each month on these free wallpapers (coming up with a phrase, dozens of lettering + design revisions, uploading the design, plugging them into the different sizing formats, creating several social media graphics, uploading them to my website, etc.) and if people aren’t using them, I can easily allocate all this time differently. I am more than willing to give out other “freebies,” but if those won’t be taken advantage of either, I would love to spend more time on other Mint for Hue projects or with my babies 🙂 So let me know–head to my Facebook page, comment on this post, and let me know what YOU want!
As always, this month’s FREE desktop wallpapers are below.
