Can She Do It? 30 Articles in 30 Days! the Challenge Begins!

So I have taken on the challenge of writing 30 blog posts in 30 days, I know the first few days I will be fine, but those of you who know me, know that after that it will be a challenge, I get sidetracked easily! But here goes!

I have been on this roller coaster known as e-commerce since 1998, that is a long time considering EBay was really in it's infancy back then. Do you all remember when you could list things to sell on EBay without pictures... and they would sell!! I do!

I also remember this as the time before digital cameras (we are so spoiled now) and I would take my pictures, go drop the film off to get developed, get the pics back and hope they were usable! Oh and then had to scan them to get them onto the computer and then... high tech eBay listings with pictures! woohoo!

I had a huge addiction to eBay back then, I bought and bought and bought - it was SO FUN!!! Selling was pretty fun also - remember when priority mail rates were the same no matter where in the country it was going? just went by weight.... ahhhhh the good ol' days.

So my challenge these days is to keep it fun, especially since my items are mostly impulse items and those a collector would buy if they didn't already have one. I am always trying to keep in mind what would entice me to buy this item, good photos, good price and good quality... GOOD STUFF!!
