So, I've opened an Etsy Store. For greetings cards. Because I love to write them. And I'm always thrilled to receive them! And, of course, as I prepare to graduate from a Masters program in Theological Studies (so marketable, I know!) and plan to move away from the city, with all of my student loans in tow, I'm kinda nervous (okay, terrified if I must be honest) about the whole money thing... And a little extra cash can go a long way.
I know quite a few of you are seasoned "Etsyers" and I would be grateful for your suggestions. I'm quite uncomfortable with the idea of "marketing myself," but I've gotta dive into the world, visible and exposed, at some point. So why not now?
Please, if you happen to check out my store, send along some feedback! And if you have the time, let me know what has worked for you or . . . maybe just some advice on taking risks, and on making ends meet in this big and beautiful (and did I say big?) world.
Smiles and gratitude,
