So in conclusion I feel that the Quirky, artsy, individual feel that Etsy seemed to portray and was even a selling point to most of us quirky artist has really become a sell out to supporting the almighty 20 cents. So list more and list more at one time Quirky Artists! We Are Sorry, just put more up at once and it will all be fine.

Etsy Newly Listed Items
Okay, I'm going to rant to myself a little bit. I understand that .20 cents is a great price to get exposure and no one guarenteed me a spot anywhere with that price and I'm not even really offended that Etsy Admin has a bad rep for communication because I am new and don't know the history and anyways, I always saw the best info from sellers blurbs of knowledge in forums. What bugs me is that now an appology is posted and everyone is; oh thank you thank you thank you, but what is that post saying. We have all seen that if our items do not show up for that few seconds on the front page in recently listed then it makes a big impact in views and then sales. So what this new post is saying to me is that; I'm sorry and the trick to get on there is to list a bunch of stuff at once or renew a bunch at once. I'm a little guy shop that each of my gourds is individual and ooak, so there really isnt a time i'm going to fall into that catagory. And that is how my day panned out on Etsy. My newly listed gourd did not show up on the front page and had extremely low views today. Maybe my gourd just sucks. naahhh! lol
