You may be wondering why or how I managed to start a blog and then get so sidetracked that there were only two entries. Yet my store appeared to be making sale after sale. Well, first of all, after the blog I also joined Twitter and created a Facebook account for my store and a fan page. Twitter was so much easier than keeping a blog, I was only allowed to type 160 characters! Twitter was so much less intimidating. I could write it as I was running out the door. The blog simply kept dropping lower and lower on the priority list. Just an FYI - I still have not done a ton with my Lynsis Fishbowl account and fan page on Facebook, but feel free to look me up. I will accept you a friend. That was the other thing with Twitter I could follow friends easily and quickly learn what was going on in their world without reading a novel like this, haha. However, I must say Twitter brings views but I do not believe it has brought me a sale yet. Although I did have my first sale within two weeks and at one point sold three paintings in about a 24 hour period I worked at it nonstop. Many of my recent "sales" have actually been trades. Trading is a great way to introduce yourself to new people and save yourself some time, money and effort going out into the outside world for both presents and birthdays. Although I must admit I traded for quite a few things I don't think I am willing to part with. This is the latest in my Etsy life. I promise it won't be nearly 3 months before I blog again!
