I'm Not an Addict. Maybe That's a Lie.

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.

Crafty crack... yeah, that sounds about right! My Etsy crack is compulsive convo'ing. I just can't get enough of it :)

Haha. Great post! And I thought I was the only one obsessed with everything Etsy has to offer.

lol. Been there -- although it turns out massive amounts of grad-school-reading are a partial cure.

You are so funny I nearly peed my pants!! It is sad how much I can relate!

wunderbug said...

i could be a top seller. i could. if it werent for the fact that it required so much patience.

any by patience i mean self control. i dare you to try and keep me out of those forums. (it's not a pretty sight!)

and OH - is that a K's Choice reference as your post title??

Winklepots said...

Why yes it is a reference to the song by K's Choice and I'm impressed that you know that. :o) I love that song. I seriously only bought the album for the one song. :oP

LOL! I do believe we are long lost twins! I have the same problem! Looks like many of us do! I am newly addicted to treasuries after getting one and being featured in one on the same day! WOO WOO!
