Listing New Items on Etsy

It always throws people off when I say I didn't use a computer until my senior year in college.  And even then, it was my journalism professor's tiny-screened Apple with the sticky keyboard.  I can't say I've ever been an early adopter.  When my mother offered to buy me a computer when I went off to college, I shrugged her off, thinking computers were surely a fad.

It's not like using the internet is such a feat.  Technology doesn't totally allude me; I talk about it every day at my high tech job.  I managed to set up a Facebook account a few years ago - and I'm not ashamed to admit I'm proud of myself for figuring out how to create this blog.

With that said, posting my pottery in my Etsy shop is not a smooth process.  I take the photos, adjust the photos, re-size, name and file the photos.  Measure the pieces and figure out prices.  Then hope for some creativity when writing the somewhat dorky item descriptions.  My husband makes fun of them all the time.  Are you 12? he asks. 

It is satisfying once the process is complete.  Last week someone bought one of my pieces the night I posted it.  I was surprised by how exciting that was.  So, I'll get on painting more things and trying new designs.  Let me know if there's anything you'd like to see!
