Ok, we all need a little background real quick. This is the first computer I have ever owned. Suffice to say, I know nothing about them. Cut and paste was something I learned how to do in Kindergarten. I won prizes when I was a "Blue Bird" for selling the most candy. (selling you got that?) I have sold things at the flea mkt. and did ok. Not great, but.........and really how hard could it be to learn how to go from one page to the next on a computer?
So with all that in mind, I have a handicap of sorts. My left foot, and parts of my left leg are paralyzed. Don't know why, and I am waiting for S.S. disability, so I can get some much needed medical attention. In the mean time, I can't do a lot, and my boyfriend leaves one of the credit cards with me for items I may need when he is out of town.
Now for the good part. One day with nothing better to do, I wandered into eBay. Wow, I can have that really pretty ring, and all I have to do is open a paypal acct? Woo Hoo! After I had spent a couple hundred dollars, I thought, oh he's gonna kill me. Didn't say anything though. Just waited for the bill. Now you know. In all fairness, I did get most of my Christmas shopping done! But all of a sudden I had 10 packages at the postoffice for me. HMMMM then another 5 or 6 the next day....HMMMM Well, when it's all said and done. The card is maxed out! Yikes!! So, I said don't worry, I'll go to the flea mkts. and the festivals around here this summer, and unload these things NO PROBLEM!!! I had some really good days. Never went in the hole as far as making a profit on everything I sold. Then I thought well, I know how to use the computer, PHHHPHTTT how hard could it be? Take a couple pictures slap them up there, and people will flock to my site and buy everything in sight!!! :) How's that workin' for y'all??? LMAO Well as I was posting and taking pictures and all last weekend my boyfriend realized it isn't just playing around. I really don't mind I love to take pictures of my things, and play around with them. I LOVE bling. Then today, Fredrick was that your blog about what to do to be a good seller? or someone else? And was it Louie the Seller that said he was going to "re-invent" himself? Well, obviously I was in the right place at the right time. I am going to sleep with that blog under my pillow. Louie you wouldn't fit, so........was it you? Anyway, I way need to take a different approach. I'm like standing here with a bag of cow poop, and the corn farmer needs fertilizer, but he passes me and goes down the street to buy cow poop from the other guy. Why!!?? Because the other guy knew what he was doing, and I didn't. I guess it is a physcological thing. Finesse maybe. I need to read and re-read that blog, and follow it step by step. I advertise all the time. I think my approach to that is wrong too. So now that I realize that I am not the queen of addoway, and can't just come here, sell some stuff, and be on my way. I will say it........ARE YOU KIDDING ME??? This is now on my "bucket" list. Learn how to sell online. I'm not stupid, dumb sometimes, but.............I can learn how to do this!! So watch me roll..............very, very, slowly!!
