Saying Goodbye To SeeAnnAtWDW….Sort-Of!

So, with the big change I’ve recently made of rebranding from SeeAnnSave to just my name, Ann Eckhart (see new banner above!), there is one more decision I’ve made; and that is to stop uploading to my SeeAnnAtWDW YouTube channel. However, all is not lost in terms of Disney vacation vlogs, so keep reading!

When I first started SeeAnnAtWDW, I had really high hopes that it would surpass my main channel, AnnEckhart on YouTube. I envisioned going to Disney World at least twice a year and being able to create all kinds of unique videos. But, then reality hit. Not only was growing a second channel incredibly difficult, but the Disney vlogging community was super hard to break into. And my dreamed of two-trips-a-year plan also fell apart; now I’ll be lucky to go once a year.

Therefore, I’ve made the decision to no longer upload new videos to SeeAnnAtWDW. However, when I do travel to Disney World again, I WILL share the vlogs on my main channel! I will likely upload vacation videos on the weekend so as not to disrupt my regular Monday, Wednesday, and Friday schedule. This will hopefully provide enough space between my current content and special content such as vacations to keep both sets of viewers happy, as some only want Ebay content.

When I first started SeeAnnAtWDW, I actually already had two rounds of vacation vlogs up on my main channel. I ended up moving those videos to SeeAnnAtWDW; but over the weekend I made them public again on my Ann Eckhart channel again and they can no longer be viewed on the Disney channel. So those trips are still available to watch, they are just where they were originally.

My last two rounds of vacations vlogs will stay on SeeAnnAtWDW; I may move them over in the future, but as of now I’ll keep the channel live and leave those vlogs alone. However, I will be closing down my SeeAnnAtWDW Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram pages; again, just like Disney vlogs will be back on my main channel, any other Disney content I create will be under my Ann Eckhart brand, including this blog, my YouTube channel, and my social media accounts.

While I know some people will be sad to see SeeAnnAtWDW go, I really think having everything back under one channel will actually improve my vacation vlogs. When I had to film for a special channel, I often found myself over-filming just to create a lot of videos. From now on I’ll be able to focus on the best footage and not worry about filling up space.

As I mentioned, shortly the social media accounts for SeeAnnAtWDW will be disabled; so be sure you are subscribed and following me on my main accounts:

Now that I’m freed up from daily deal blogging and am bringing all video content under one channel, I’m hoping to have more time to write about Disney World here on the blog. I’d love to post travel advice along with restaurant and resort reviews. If there’s anything you’d like me to review, be sure to leave me a comment below letting me know!

I know all of the changes this past week have been a bit of a whirlwind, but now that the bulk of my rebranding is done, I’m excited to find my excitement again about writing, blogging, and vlogging! Thanks to all of you who’ve left supportive messages and who are looking forward to what’s to come! 🙂

VLOG: Huge Ebay Sales Weekend!

There’s a new vlog up on my AnnEckhart YouTube channel, which you can also watch below! It’s going to take me awhile before I have to remind myself that it’s now AnnEckhart and not SeeAnnSave, lol! I’ve gotten lots of great feedback about the rebranding, which I sincerely appreciate.

Just a reminder that my YouTube videos will continue as-is with vlogs on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays. Most of the footage will be of Ebay, but I will also include unboxings, hauls, recipes, and, of course, Papa and the pugs! 🙂

Ebay Store Owners: October Shipping Supply Coupons Now Available!

1

It’s the start of a new business quarter, and if you have an Ebay store subscription, that means you have a FREE coupon waiting for you to spend on shipping supplies! The amount you receive is based on your Ebay store level; since I have a Premium Store, I have $50 to spend. Here’s how to find your coupon:

Go to the Manage My Store section on Ebay. I do this super fast by going to my store’s storefront and scrolling down to the bottom of the first page to find the Seller, manage Store link.

After clicking on the Seller, manage Store link, you’ll be taken directly to your Manage My Store page. Look at the first box on the left-hand side, which is titled Store Management. Click on the Subscriber Discounts link to be taking to your eBay Shipping Supplies coupon link.

Remember that you can only use your coupon code in ONE transaction or else you will lose any amount you don’t use. So you may want to go over your allotted amount and spend a bit more out of pocket to maximize the amount of supplies you can get. Also, make sure to copy and then paste your unique coupon code into the “redeem coupon” area in the checkout page; many people assume the credit is applied automatically, but you must enter it in yourself to receive the credit.

What are you ordering? I picked up two sizes of poly mailers, the new multi-color stickers (of course!), and the tissue paper! :-

A New Beginning!

Hello, friends! Well, as you can see from the header (still a work in progress) and new URL, this blog has undergone a complete rebranding. After trying very hard for several years to make it as a daily deal blogger, I’ve had to face the reality that I need to put my time behind my other projects and to let SeeAnnSave.com go. So, I’m saying goodbye to daily deal blogging….but saying HELLO to my own personal branded website, AnnEckhart.com!

This decision was not an easy one to make. I have LOVED sharing freebies, coupons and deals with you all; I actually started this blog as a way for me to keep track of all the great offers for myself and to share with friends. However, financially, the daily deal posting is not cutting it. While I hate for things to boil down to money, I’m not independently wealthy, and I need to earn an income. Also, being tied down to a daily posting schedule has become quite stressful, especially on days when Papa needs more care. And you all know that Papa comes first! 🙂

I realized that my online “brand” shouldn’t be SeeAnnSave, but should be ME, and specifically, my books. My Kindle books bring in a nice bit of passive income. It’s not as great as it was when I first started publishing, but they give me a solid part-time level paycheck every month with no effort on my part. While I do update the books every year (a project I’m about to undertake for 2018, pray for me!), I don’t have to do any work on them for the majority of the year. I want/need to be known first and foremost as a writer.

So, with daily deal blogging not working and the need to make my books a bigger focus of my digital footprint, it’s with some sadness that I’ve had to put SeeAnnSave to rest. However, just because my site has a new name doesn’t mean that I’m done with blogging! In fact, without the pressure and time commitment of producing multiple daily posts, I plan to focus on original, quality content. I’ll be writing about selling on Ebay, making money online, and saving money. I’ll be reviewing products and sharing shopping hauls, along with recipes. And when a new video goes live, I’ll share it here, too.

So, to break it down:

  1. SeeAnnSave.com is now AnnEckhart.com.
  2. All of my social media accounts are now under “Ann Eckhart” – I will have the new links to them below this post.
  3. I won’t be posting daily deals, coupons, and freebies. However, I will be creating unique blog posts about saving money, making money online, product reviews, Disney World, and anything else that I feel inclined to post about!
  4. I’m also working on a “Saving Money” page here on the site with links to all of the coupon and freebie sites that provided me with my daily content so that you’ll have an easy way to access the daily deals. And I’ll post any hot deals that I see directly to my Twitter and Facebook pages as these still interest me, too!
  5. I will no longer be posting to my SeeAnnAtWDW YouTube channel; the trip vlogs that are there now will stay, but any new vacation footage will be on my AnnEckhart channel (same channel that was called SeeAnnSave, just under a new name). I will also be closing down the SeeAnnAtWDW Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram pages.
  6. My 3-times-a-week YouTube vlogging schedule will continue as is, no changes to the content!

I know that some of you really loved my daily deal posting, and I’m sorry for those of you who are disappointed that I won’t be sharing coupons and freebies here anymore. However, I hope you’ll find that the content I share going forward is just as, if not more, valuable then what I’ve posted previously! Change is hard (this rebranding process has and continues to be hard!), but I’m confident it will be worth it!

As I mentioned above, my social media accounts have also been rebranded. If you were already following me under the SeeAnnSave moniker, you are still there even through the name has changed. However, going forward, here are my new links:

Under Construction!

Hello, friends! Well, as the title of this post says, this site is currently undergoing a huge overhaul. I have BIG changes planned; and I will be revealing them all to you soon. I can’t say anything beyond that, but stay tuned as you’ll know more sooner rather than later. How’s that for peeking your interest and then leaving you hanging?! 😉
