This member is on Vacation

First day jitters...

Well I finally listed my first item...and promptly placed my store on vacation, lol! Actually, I still have some fine tuning to do with tweaking my shipping policy, rewording the description, figuring out what else I should have on my listing to make it as understandable and as user friendly as possible and on, and on.

I'm trying not to contract the 'paralysis of analysis' disease but it's hard to know if I've done enough (or too much!) in making my webstore what I envision it to be. Sigh. 

I know, I know. I tell myself I just need to go with what I have and make adjustments as situations arise. 

Then I leave everything alone. For 20 minutes. Then I'm back at it; changing, deleting, thinking about what I should do next...

Oh well, I suppose everyone experiences this sort of anxiety in the beginning. I'm hoping to have everything up and running by the end of this month. But maybe I should take some more pictures of  my item first....

Welcome to Addoway & Congrats for getting this far!

I've never heard 'paralysis of analysis' but have certainly seen that to be true in my life. Perhaps a compromise with your perfectionist tendency might be to list one or two items just to get over that initial hump?

Blessings to you & yours!

Just go for it. You'll find lots of thing to change once you're up and running. Change is a constant. Join the Addoway pages on FB and you'll find that people who've been on the site from day one are still asking questions.

And welcome to Addoway. We really are a special group.

Tonia you are right, I need to just go ahead and list a couple of items and be done with it - hopefully by this weekend. Thanks for the welcome!

I've been enjoying looking through many of the members shops and reading blogs - it IS a special group! That's a very nice shop you have - great banner! Yes, I need to just jump in and get started. Thanks for the welcome!

Chococu, I'm with the others, just let it fly! No need for performance anxiety, although I understand exactly what you are saying.

Ditto to the facebook "addoway sellers meet and greet" group. It's a forum for questions and answers, amongst other fun stuff. People will be around to assist you if you need help or have concerns.

Welcome to addoway!
