Why I'm Blogging...or at least trying to ; )

I started selling online in 2003, back when there was really only one game in town. I was an early childhood educator at the time, and with my own children being younger, I had very little time to spend online at all, but a friend of mine asked me to help him out selling some BSA motorcycle parts he had. I've always loved anything vintage, anything with a history, and I had accumulated so many things, online sales was a great way to not just "get rid" of things that I loved, but to actually pass them along to other people who appreciated them as much as I did.
My addiction to garage sales and estate sales had a purpose! : )
Recently, the rules changed, and with new policies in effect, it wasn't so easy to get the exposure needed to sell anymore. I looked for new venues, found a GREAT group of people to help me along, and started learning new terms (for me, at least) like "bounce rates" and "hash tags".
I'll use this blog as a showcase for things I sell, and write a little something here and there, maybe share some things I'm learning about, and try to help others along the way.
