I'm turning into that person I bitch about. I've been spending a lot of time lately going through the Etsy Gift Guids, looking at the new B&B Voter on Etsy, and today looking at the Stork articles. You know what I keep seeing? Not only the same B&B sellers repeated throughout, but in some cases, the exact same listings from the same sellers. I'm not saying they don't deserve the recognition, because they do. They have fantastic products with amazing photographs.
Yes, I am jealous. I won't deny it. Yes, I am greedy because we have been on the front page 5 times in 4 months and been in 2 gift guides in Decemeber....but really...there are thousands of B&B shops on Etsy and hundreds of those that have great pics and fabulous products...so why is there a need to repeat sellers and items throughout the gift guides?
I'm trying to remain calm and respectful, because I truly do love selling on Etsy...in fact, Amy and I have been two of the biggest Etsy supporters and cheerleaders....but there is a little voice in my head screaming, "Who do I have to blow to get that sort of recognition?!"
