A Few Random Thoughts

A few random thoughts for today (some important, some not so much!)

Most importantly, Jacob tied his own shoes for the first time yesterday! He was so proud of himself. He ran outside and yelled "Hey world..guess what..I just tied my shoes!! " Ahh the simple things in life :)

Today I am on the Etsy Main showcase..will it work for me? I don't know..I just keep trying to put myself out there - sometimes I feel like a small guppy in a very large ocean of jewelry designers...I'm just going to keep my head down and plug away..people will notice!

My mug...why do I feel funny about putting my pic on my blog? I've been thinking about that lately...hmmm I guess that it really puts you out there..you are revealed! I think a picture of my jewelry represents me better than a picture of myself..does that sound weird? Anyway..I'll put my pic on tomorrow..just so you all know who you are dealing with!

And then I'll post a random act of kindness..something small I did for someone many year ago..I still think of him around this time of year.

And now a few questions. How do I get little pics of the items in my shop on my blog? Is that what the Etsy Mini is? Also...the Treasury..is it really hit or miss getting on it or having one of your own? And how come some sellers' recently listed items have already been viewed 40 or 50 times or more?

O.K. that's enough randomness for one day, hope you have a great one :)

What if we all got that excited about everything we do! Wouldn't that be awesome:)

Ok, Etsy mini is how you get your pieces on your blog. Just go to your dashboard on blogger and add the gadget that lets you put in html coding. The Etsy mini has an html code that you just copy and paste.

High views - those items are being renewed. when you renew an item you keep the views with it.

getting a treasury - patience and quickness. I haven't tried in a long time so I'm not sure if anything has changed. I'll let you know next time.

Thank you so much for the info! I'm going to try to get that etsy mini on my blog today. My 12 yo has been my tech person so far, she even did my banner for me.I think I'd better start figuring out some of this stuff on my own now..she's starting to get aggrivated with me :)
