This thread is me playing with the digital market.  The digital market is a neat thing on permies where I can sell stuff like PDFs and the like.  But I wonder if I can sell a story with a series of pictures and other goodies.  So here we go, my test.



Photos and a story of how to toss a fleece on a skirting table.  


This is the story of when I learned how to toss a fleece during a class on the beautiful Pender Island.

We begin the story with our amazing instructor and the local sheep sheerer:



$1.00

Tossing a fleece!
  • a story about sheering sheep
  • access to a top-secret, private forum about permaculture fibre farming
  • yes, these are actual rewards that I'm testing
Seller r ranson


The end of the story is a fleece spread out and ready to skirt.

I got an email saying I have premium access to Tossing a fleece. I clicked on the link and it took me straight to the post. I saw the story and the pics (really nice pics!). I clicked on the Buy this item as a gift and it took me to PayPal login page. I logged in to PayPal and I could have bought it, price was 1 USD.

Do you see a new forum in your private forum list?

I see "Seeking victims - um I mean people to help test stuff" as a forum in Private Forums list.
Is that the new forum you meant? I'm not sure now whether it's actually new. Perhaps I saw it even before you sent the premium access link... sorry, I'm not very helpful if I'm too absent-minded to remember stuff like this...

I sent you my husband's email by pm. I hope he'll be a more useful volunteer!

got your email and when I clicked on the link I could see the photo spread in the first post above this time....before, when I looked at this thread there was the link to buy for a dollar.  Thanks!

I didn't see any new private forums...maybe because I was already in 'r's writing room'?

...and I don't see a way to buy the 'toss a fleece' photos (as Nina mentioned) in the post now that the photos are there.

I had exactly the same experience.
 
Morning came much too soon and it brought along a friend named Margarita Hangover, and a tiny ad.
