I think I've reached critical mass.
That is I can't possibly spend anymore time on the computer and I'm stret--c---h----e-----d in a few too many directions.
So I'm thinking of cutting out a few things. I have accounts that I rarely to never use and shops that don't seem to go anywhere or do anything.
I'm afraid of missing something though-- I might miss the chance to be seen by that one customer who wants to buy Hamunaptra . . .
On the other hand, my customers find me via Google and on Etsy and 1000Markets. I've never had anyone say-- oh yeah I fell in love your profile on Indiepublic or DeviantART.(Which is probably why it's been months since I logged on.) And I've had stores open for what seems like forever on some venues and they get zero attention. (But I faithfully update them.) So if they're not working what would I lose by taking the time I spend updating those sites and spending it on the places that do garner me some love?
How and when do you make the choice to let some things go and just retrench? Rethink? Rework? As in work smarter, not harder? What is a fair amount of time to try something that you really want to work before you just admit that for some unknown reason-- it won't?
No, those aren't rhetorical questions! Share your wisdom people!!!
