Thanks for the insights! It's so nice to hear a TPT seller discuss this topic. I have a small shop and have just started listing a handful of my best sellers on my website through a free platform called Payhip. They take care of all the backend stuff that would be overwhelming to me. I will slowly add more products over time, but don't expect to make much off of it. It's just, like you said, diversifying and not putting all your eggs in one basket. Anyways, thanks again! :) Kimberly's Classroom
