Etsy as soon as we are through, this damnable Firefox is going too. Nothing personal FF but you suck.
It's been harder then I thought to resist listing new things on Etsy. Makes no sense, attachment? Habit? Hope springing eternal? But I haven't.
Being away from Etsy has made be really focus on MY goals rather then what's wrong with Etsy now. Do I miss the forums? I miss the people, but those people I maintain relationships with.
I am happy with myself for not being the girl who complains about her boyfriend but never leaves.
My site is getting traffic, mailings are being sent. I don't know, will it pan out? Would I have left it Etsy didn't hit that brick wall?
Maybe and more then likely. Dysfunction Junction isn't where I need to be, although it is the most comfortable for me. Which isn't you know, healthy. Now I'm thinking why not set a fire under my own ass rather then railing away at a venue who has never listened as if they suddenly will?
But as odd as it is, it is a little bittersweet, a lot nerve wracking but kinda exciting too. Now I have to go out in the world and promote. Something I never did on E. Yep.
But I think it's best for both of us, Etsy. And to be honest, it's something I should have done months ago. I'll watch my listing expire and find comfort in the fact that it's not me, it's you. Maybe you changed, or maybe I just wasn't paying attention because the money was good. But now that I've stepped back for a couple weeks, it's clear you and I simply aren't meant to be.
Of course, watching my listing expire may be a little anxiety producing...
