Decisions and Quandries
I'm preparing to travel, and debating whether to put the Etsy shops on "vacation mode" or just leave up the notes I posted that say there'll be a delay in shipping.
I've always left them open, and shipped any orders when I returned from my travels.
I see also that the little poll on the sidebar has completed its time and the results are that most of you understand about waiting for custom orders.
But I also see that a few prefer that things be available for shipping right at the time of purchase.
I will try to keep a mix of both in the shop, and put a note in the listings that are "on spec" that are cast at the time of the order.
I've also decided to turn on Comment Moderation on the blog.
I learned that it has hit 52,500 hits, and is listed on one of the search blogs as #9 for jewelry blogs, for whatever that means, and that may be attracting some of the spam posts I'm getting.
Rather than have them inconvenience you, and annoy me, I've turned on Comment Moderation, so I don't have to be the Comment Police on my own blog.
If I see that the number of comments goes way down, or if you post here and let me know it really, really bothers you, I'll think about it some more.
Hope you're having a terrific summer day, in preparation for a wonderful summer weekend!
