09.22.08 - New Admin

Hello Everyone,

I have just added RubeeDesigns to the admin on this blog - so please help me in welcoming me her to the blog!! *clap clap clap*

I am hoping that RubeeDesigns will help me get things running a little more around here - I would love for this team to take off, I mean, we have enough memebers in here now that we can really do something!!! When I took over this team - there were only 10 members, I believe we are over 80 now!

One thing I would like to point out before I do a feature is a cool way to search Etsy...and to maybe help someone get their first sale (I LOVE being someone's 1st sale!!) So may I point out POUNCE - this search will allow you to search by people who have recently updated their shop but have yet to had a sale, or, people who have just had a sale - so you can see what's selling on the site!

I am hoping that my last entry helped you all out a little, there was a lot of information to take in, but I myself and going to start using a mentor to get things running a little more in my shop - I figure, the more help the better!!!!

I am loving this shop right now - but yet can't figure out why our team meber hasn't had a sale!!! BurlesqueBabe - your necklaces are pretty cool - if I do say so myself. But I must admit that I am a necklace freak...I think I like them a little too much. Hopefully we can get BurlesqueBabe a little promoting and they will get their very first sale.

The Holidays Are Headed For Us....
I have found in the past year or so here, that this is the time of year that things go from being pretty slow to starting to pick up - people are starting to do their Christmas/Holiday shopping.... so now would be the time if you are going to start posting these types of items to add them to your listing - and make sure that you tag them!! Use things like, Christmas, Holiday, Stocking Stuffer, Gift to your tags to get yourself out there as much as possible. Also, I am going to say that we should all start adding Canadian, Canada, Ontario to our tags as well, I do find that I try to do local shopping myself, and I can't be the only one who does so.

Alright - that is all from me for now....I am throwing my son his 3rd Birthday Party this weekend - we are having a Fishing Party...and I have so far cut out 200 paper fish - and I think I need another 200 more...wish me luck. Happy Birthday Chandler!!!!
