I got a late start on work today. I didn’t sleep well at all, and I had to go out to the consignment shop where I’d put some of my jewelry. That put me in a pretty bad mood, but I’m trying to keep going.
I went to the shop, and after three months, they hadn’t sold anything. What’s worse is that one of the pieces, the most expensive and irreplaceable one, got destroyed, and the store wouldn’t compensate me. Needless to say there will be a very unpleasant review of them going up on Wednesday. This experience is one of the reasons I prefer to sell online, like through my Bonanza shop.
I did manage to get two blog posts up before this one though. Of course, I got sidetracked and the first one was off topic, but I decided to write it before I forgot. Part of me is thinking I should do these journal posts later in the day, after I’ve done more that I can talk about, but I’d probably forget them if I tried that.
I have a lot of things that I want and need to get done, but I’m feeling rather off. Things keep slipping my mind. I did get some promotion done earlier on a few of my Zazzle products. We’re planning on adding more new products to the Zazzle shops in the near future. I think Eric’s going to be doing most of that, but I may get in on it too. I’m also hoping that I can get some of you folks to affiliate me through Zazzle so we can all make more money. If you’re interested in offering my products on your site, contact me and we can talk about it. It’s easy and free. I may blog about it in the near future too.
At some point we’re going to have to get the items from the consignment store up in the Bonanza shop. I’ve been wanting to do more crafting too, but I really need to get the current inventory moving. Everyone always tells me how nice my work is, but they’re not buying. If you like my work but can’t buy, I’d really appreciate it if you could promote the shop or some of the products on your sites and social media. It would really help us out a lot. I’d love to be making more items to put in the shop. I’ve really started to miss crafting.
It’s also been suggested to me that I make ebooks out of posts from the blog and put them up with the rest of my books. It’s a good idea, I just don’t know how to find the time and energy for it. I’m so worn out lately. I’m still praying that people will donate to the fundraiser and share it around a lot so that we can stop worrying about having a place to live and work. That kind of stress is really draining.
I suppose I need to go get something to eat and then get on to some other sort of work. I know that I need to Hoot 15 posts, but I’m not sure what to do after that. I just have to keep working and trying to the best of my ability and pray that it will all work out in time.
