It has been an incredibly busy summer! New work and my annual 20% off sale event has meant very high order volume.
I added a new series featuring very simple graphic representations of fireflies, stars, oceans, etc. and I am very happy to see these connecting with a lot of folks. I added sentiments to each that really seem to have found kindred spirits out there on the internet.
But now summer is ending, as is my annual sale. Sale will end 9/2/14, and there will be no more sales until sometime next summer. It’s a great time to pick up some of my work and save some money in the process.
For as long as I could understand Etsy, I have been helping other Etsy sellers learn how to live a creative life. For me Etsy is a big part of that.
As I have shared here before, there were a few years when I had to stop helping others as much and concentrate on learning how to tag for the then new Relevancy-based search on Etsy. Learning how to tag on Etsy was probably the most difficult thing I have ever done on Etsy, but I made it through with a lot of knowledge about how to be found on Etsy.
Now, I have compiled the 10 most important things a seller can do to understand tagging for Etsy in to this How To Tag for Etsy PDF – Ten Tips For Better Tagging on Etsy.
Sales of the PDF (just $9.99 for a PDF that may just change your favorite Etsy Seller’s life) will help to fund the completion of more helpful booklets and eventually a book on living a creative life on Etsy.
Did not get to do any posts since Mother’s Day, so nothing was posted about the great Father’s Day Gifts I can make for you. Next year for sure!
We had a slight detour following Easter. We found out that our youngest daughter has Type 1 Diabetes. She is doing great now and really seems to have a handle on this new normal. Turns out trips to the hospital can come with some nasty respiratory bugs, and I brought home the nastiest I have known in years. I faced down a 104.1 fever several times and about 10 days of downtime.
With all the excitement, there was a lot of waiting for orders by the most patient and understanding customers ever. I really appreciate everyone allowing me this time to get my family back on the right track to health. We have learned a lot about challenges and crises from a 9-year old that we have never doubted would teach us a lot about life. Thanks to everyone who was made a part of this journey, whether you knew it or not.
There are still a few orders lingering, but most orders are now shipping in the estimated time with no future foreseeable delays.
