Blog & Site Updates
2.21.18 It's been a while since I've been here. There have been some changes. I have taken down my jewelry site for a hiatus, during which I will be rethinking my options. Thus far, since 2015 I have not had much success with it. I suspect that the current economy being what it is (no, I don't think the stock market has anything to do with day to day spending or saving) there are fewer and fewer people who trust online sales at the moment. What with credit hacking, eBay going down the tubes, and so on, a lot of shoppers are choosing to go back to the brick and mortar stores. My sites being so small compared to the giants like Walmart, Amazon, and eBay, they don't stand a chance in a headwind. Besides that, book sales have been going up somewhat when I tuned up my covers, and I have been able to publish ebooks on Amazon and Barnes & Noble. Yet, I feel I could do something to spruce up the jewelry site; I simply don't know what it is at the moment. I have also taken down the Facebook page; people were looking but not buying. But then, FB is not conducive to sales yet. I have to study the results of other users to see whether it is worth going down that rabbit hole. But at some point I will have to figure out what to do with over 500 pieces of inventory, along with thousands of pieces of supplies. Right now I will focus on my books and worry about it later. ♦
