The Provenance of Geospatial Art Printed by Imagekind
|| 9/24/2010 || 3:18 pm || + Render A Comment || ||

Provenance, from the French provenir, “to come from”, means the origin, or the source of something, or the history of the ownership or location of an object. Between February of 2007 and May of 2009, I used the printing service Imagekind to sell my maps on-line. Over the years I sold or printed 56 maps and generated over $1,000 in sales. I stopped using the service to sell directly to customers because I was continuously bothered that I was unable to find out enough information about how my maps were being sold. Back then, I would receive an e-mail informing me someone purchased a map, then I’d log in to the Imagekind website, and see that someone purchased X map and I made $ on the commission— thats it. What I was not told was what material the map was printed on, the size of the print, how the map was framed, and where the purchaser was located. In essence, I was unable to discern very much information about my customers and instead of being kept in the dark, I decided to deaccession my collection from the store. Last week I decided to log into my account and discovered that Imagekind had updated their administrative controls. One of the new options was the ability to track sales better, so I decided to upgrade and to my surprise I was able to download my entire sales history with all the nuanced details I had been longing for.

Below is the complete listing of every printing by Imagekind in reverse chronological order of purchase. The listings which have the commission at $0.00 are the maps that I ordered myself. Click on the Title of the map to view it’s original blog entry.

Experimenting with infrequent blogging
|| 1/22/2009 || 4:31 pm || Comments Off on Experimenting with infrequent blogging || ||

At the beginning of January I decided that I was going to take a break from blogging daily to see the traffic that my archives receive. I got bored of this experiment and decided to add a bunch of entries that covered the middle of the month up until the inauguration. However, the experiment did prove that each day I receive hundreds of visitors to my blog’s archives and very few daily visitors to my blog’s front page.

When I released the contents of my website last year I was not expecting this to happen. Rather I expected my archives to be read as much as my fresh content, but through these experiments I’ve found that I was completely wrong in my assumption. Now I feel compelled to simply write for the archives through back dating blog entries instead of trying to write for the present. I see myself not maintaining a “Daily Render” but an “infrequent render” simply because I don’t have to worry about doing timely entries anymore. This discovery is somewhat liberating.

Below are the stats from January 1st to January 21st, 2009:

You can see that even without any new entries, this website still received 9,000 pageviews by 6,500 viewers. A different test would be to see what the total would be if I were blogging everyday. I have a feeling that it wouldn’t change very much….
