Well, to be honest, this is not the biggest reason, but it did make me smile and I am sharing it here because only other Etsy sellers will find this funny.
As you may or may not know, (since I have been so sadly absent from this or any other blog) I am going back to school. Since school started in January, I have not made a single piece of jewelry. I have cut back my renewing of Etsy items to a bare minimum.
Last night, we had this conversation:
Me: I have not sold anything in almost a week.
Me: Well, that is a really long time for me.
Me: It is a little unsettling.
Me: I really hope things pick up in March.
Me: I am worried!
Him: When was the last time you posted something new?
Me: Early January?
Him: Have you been renewing?
Me: Ummmmm. Not very much...
Him: You should probably go on the forums and ask someone to help you. You whiny newbie!
And all this time I thought he was not paying attention to anything I said about Etsy for the last two and a half years!
