Spoiler Alert... I may have rambled off topic somehow to "Downton Abbey". If you have not watched season 3 in its entirety, click this blog closed and walk away. Otherwise, go ahead and read.
Okay, so Charlie and I are confused about this whole Google Reader thingy. I looked online and found something called "Feedly". They even had an app. It just moved all of the blogs I read over to it.
Now, here is where I am confused, the rock in the bag so to speak. What about your followers or followers in the future? Since Blogger, a Google product, will still be there, will you still join by Google Friends Connect? What am I supposed to do? Ugh. This feels like Y2K. I feel like I am storing up canned vegetables and am not sure why or how to use them. Charlie, who does not understand metaphors, has now offered to eat them. "Charlie, you can't eat them. I am using the metaphor as a way to express my confusion if all of this effort is futile or necessary." Charlie- "Yeah. All I heard was can and 'waa waaa waa wa wa'. Can means food. Stop yappin' and go get it." Pardon me, my dear readers... Charlie and I need to have a little chat about something Aretha Franklin sings about: R-E-S-P-E-C-T.
Okay, so we are back. Now here is another question. What do those of you who craft, recommend as the best way to sell your wares? I would like to do crafting a little more seriously this summer (and will have a giveaway...Hmmm), but I feel like just having it on my blog isn't really productive. I am mainly chatting on my blog. I am happy with a smaller number of followers to interact with on my blog. But, that doesn't work with selling wares.. I have dolls and pin cushions that I would like to sell. What do you all recomend? What have you found to be easy to use and yet provide some visibility?
I am not thinking this will allow me to retire for teaching. I can't churn things out that fast, or am accomplished enough to charge much. I am looking to make some money to buy mulch or use it for small home repairs (The Dowager Countess of Grantham would be horrified at my undignified talk about money. Shocking. Don't tell her. Or my spinning around on a swivel chair. If you watch "Downton Abbey", you'll know what I mean. It is okay if you still don't think it is funny... Oh, and rabbit trail- I finally brought myself to watch the final episode of season 3. If I didn't know something bad was going to happen, I would be really upset. It is like watching Titanic. You know the ship sinks so you aren't as surprised. But the poor British people! That was their Christmas Special. Okay, back to the topic at hand...). So, large percentages taken out or big costs to list and maintain... I don't know if it would be worth it. eBay seems to be hit or miss with sales.
So, anywhoo, if you have time to share your thoughts about any of these topics, I would surely appreciate. And so would Charlie...
Love and Hugs!
Heather and Charlie
