for the next two weeks i am NOT going to read the etsy forums. the etsy forums art a place where hope goes to die. and when there are nice threads that say things like "i made my first sale!" or "a customer gave me really sweet feedback today!" i'm all like "boooooring!" and i go looking for threads that say things like "boy am i steamed!" or "etsy what the bleep is wrong with you!?" cause those are interesting. but mostly in the end i feel kind of confused and depressed and hopeless.
so i'm just going to concentrate on my little piece of etsy real estate - my shop. i'm going to make new products, move things around and reassess it the best i can. i'll plug my ears and just do my own thing for two weeks!
