Etsy, the haven for the handmade artisan. A place to sell your wares, make new friends, and hopefully meet many new long term customers. But wait, there's more! In addition to all of this, you will also receive the Forums, Teams, Treasuries, Chat Rooms, Virtual Labs and The Storque. And you thought crafting would be a full time job, oh no, you don't know full time until you've fully immersed yourself in the Crafty Crack that Etsy has to offer.
When you're not busy checking the forums for the latest gossip, site question or rant/rave, you're chatting with your team members while waiting for the treasury to open. The treasury may very well be my own personal Etsy vice. It is an addiction for which there is no cure. Except maybe a power outtage. But even then, I'd be Hell bent on finding a way to be there when the number of treasuries dropped to 332.
Then there is the occasional Virtual Lab or Storque article that catches your interest, and you're yet again getting your Crafty Crack fix. With all of these fabulous extras, who has time to work on new inventory for your Etsy shop or even promote what you already have in store? Or even do anything offline, like your "real" job.
I'm just saying that I too could be one of those top Etsy sellers if I wasn't needing my daily fixes. Even when there's nothing interesting going on, I'm obsessively checking to make sure I don't miss any Crafty Crack. Yup, I'm convinced I am top seller worthy, I just need to..... hold on.... the treasuries are about to open.
