Welcome to my blog! Here is where you'll finding me rambling about a variety of subjects, including my family, vintage, thrifting, Etsy shops I love, and more!

I'm on a Twitter craze! Anyone else finding it hard to leave Twitter!? One of the reasons I enjoy it so much is, well first of all, I have met a lot of nice people there. Just about the only negative comment you hear on Twitter is about the weather! Otherwise, it's positive and upbeat, and that's what I like!

I rarely hit the Etsy forums. It seems everytime I join in on a thread, there's someone there that would prefer to create a debate. I just don't understand conveying yourself, your business in a negative way. I'm not sure how that can help your sales.

The first thing I do after I add a new listing to either of my shops, is go right to Twitter to let everyone know! And they look...instant views! Very gratifying. And they comment too!

So...if you haven't joined Twitter, I recommend that you do! My twitter names is jenscloset (isn't that clever)...so feel free to follow me and I will be happy to follow you too! And check out my followers, I have over 2,000, and I am happy to share! Right now I am ranked 2nd in Cleveland, so that's pretty exciting, and another good way to get your shop name out there!

Good luck to all of my Twitter friends, and soon-to-be-twitters! http://www.twitter.com/

That is great Jen. I agree about the Etsy forums. They can be quite snippy sometimes as well.
