Posting Promoting?

On the spur of the moment I made the little card above about THE RED SOCK that always ends up with my whites and making everything pink! I thought it was funny but did other people get it? One thing about humor is once you explain it the humor is gone! To get some feedback In went to Critiques forum of Etsy to ask for opinions. I got an overwhelming response of how funny and quirky it was and people did get it. See I do have a sense of humor people get! (sometimes). That really made me happy! But then it got sold! Someone who commented on the post brought it! Now I was floored as this has never happened to me ...

I'm not saying go and post like a madman or madwoman on the forums but when you honestly need help, have a question or want to respond to something... you never know someone is looking at your shop and go gee whiz I got to get that! I've had a few sales from people whose seen me post because well I'm always interested in what other people say and I like to give advice and receive it. I've also brought from other sellers who post on the forums too! Don't be afraid people are generally very very nice there.

Congrats on the sale! I get it - as someone who has also had white socks change color in the wash - I totally get it! :D

I love shopping in the forums, too. I've bought tons of stuff from people that I saw in the forums. And I've sold a few items from forum-ers too!

I too have gotten a sale or two directly from a specific post on Etsy forums, so can attest to what you say. I have seen a lot of nastiness and immaturity there as well. I tend to stay away more than before because of it. :(

Thanks for the other links. I will definitely check them out when I return from my vacation!
