Taking Care of Business

Yes, Bachman Turner Overdrive! That song has been playing in my head all day like some musical mantra, psyching me up for my big win against "The Man". Laughs. I-and please don't hold this against me, enjoyed the live, pre-recorded-at-a-Canadian-prison version of the video whilst eating lunch this afternoon. Laughs.

It's been a long day in front of the computer so today's post will be short and sweet. Pretty in Peace has crossed the pond! Last night, I signed up on DaWanda. It was one part motivation and two parts consternation following an exchange with my current host site that can best be described as buffoonery. I'm not looking to buy a yacht, but after yesterday's insanity I hope to at least recover the co-pay for my therapist! So, I opened with the four items I'd planned to list today.

I'm pleased with the site thus far; I saw some familiar faces, pricing is reasonable, and I get to watch the decline of the American dollar with each currency conversion. I'm somewhat dismayed with their banner template, but the pros outweigh the cons. It seems they allow a maximum banner size of 720 x 200 but have a Texas sized space outlined leaving your banner to float. For now, it'll have to do. Actually, this post and a subtle throbbing in my left temple is all that is keeping me from tweaking it! If you're in the area, stop by and say, "Namaste".

I'll be watching your experience with Dawanda with a lot of interest. How did you decide to list the prices in Euros? Did the site do that? I wish you much luck over there.

I like Dawanda too, but it takes more than a notion to sit down, convert prices and we're not even talking if you want to list in French or German etc., but I heard (and believe) that is key. I made my biggest sales when I listed my items in German. Hang in there and I'm sure your beautiful work will sale!
