WOW! Two sales this month!

Have had two sales in my shop this month, and one last month. Of course they were all for the least expensive items I have in my shop, the ornaments I make from computer hard drive boards.

But hey! Sales are sales. I am hoping that this means that my stuff is finally getting out there by means other than what advertising I can do.

Still splitting things between Etsy and , need to finish working on that. I've still a lot of inventory to get photos of and get posted to both my shops.

Continuing to look for ways to make money. Looking at a couple print on demand sites (PODS) that would be more of a drop ship idea so I could sell thru my store webpage. Not sure how that will work as I don't have enough money on hand to order stuff until someone orders. That is where shops on and such are nice. Would love to find something similar for my photos. I got a line on one that another shop owner on Zazzle uses, just not sure it is something I could pull off. Again, need money to make money emoticon :tongue:

Speaking of making money, looks like is going to not pay people to write anymore. Got an email from them last night with a heads up. Apparently it just isn't profitable enough. I don't have much there and hadn't been doing much anyways (the whole going thru hell thing this last summer), so there isn't any money I need to worry about. I think I will pull down my stuff and archive it for future use. Wish I had done that when I quit Squidoo emoticon :sad: Had quite a few good articles there.

Congrats! I haven't tried wikinut and I lost interest joining/writing on other sites. I am just keeping my account here and and saving copies of my articles on my personal wordpress blog as back up. :)

I did start on Hubpages, may look at starting back up there writing wise. Right now I am working on getting more active at if only to be able to donate the few pennies I make to the various charities I follow on there.

Yeah. They will still stay up and running, but won't be paying anyone after they make their final payout to eligible people in January. In the meantime they will be putting new signups on hold while they revamp things.

Congratulations on the Etsy sales and that is too bad that Wikinut is not paying anymore. That is a let down.

Are you sure your Squidoo articles weren't transferred to HubPages? If they were good and you didn't opt out of the transfer, they could be sitting there waiting for you.

I don't think so. I'd closed my account well before then :(

JeanC wrote on December 11, 2015, 12:09 AM

That it is. Luckily I hadn't invested that much time and effort into it.

JeanC wrote on December 11, 2015, 12:10 AM

I hope so too. Really can use the extra income for a lot of things here at the new place next year.

It is quite fascinating the amount of sites out there for 'making' money. But it all sounds fearce payment wise

What is your Etsy shop name? And you make ornaments out of computer pieces? I'd love to see them.
