Why I like Plurk Over Twitter



For a little over a year now I have used Plurk instead of Twitter. Why? If you never used Plurk before, I have to tell ya that it is more personable and fun then Twitter. Someone actually responds to your plurks. Unlike Twitter, you can have over a 1000 followers and the chances of any of your followers seeing your plurks during the course of the day is next to 0. Unless they are on at the same time then there is a chance your tweets will be seen. And to be honest, I don't think anyone gives a crap about what I have to say on Twitter. If I advertise just one time in a course of a week, I will lose up to 4 followers just because of one advertisement I did.

So what is so special about Plurk? Well Plurks is a social networking site just like Twitter, the only difference is that your friends get to see what you say based on your timeline. If someone missed it, all they have to do is click on my name and follow my timeline and what I have been saying the entire day and they can even respond.

I have met some really wonderful people that I sell with on Artfire and Etsy. I have established some really great friends and have been a good listener for over a year now and has kept me sane throughout the day. I have learned a great day about so many different things and have learned about their lives too. My friends are both from the US and overseas in the UK, Australia and Germany. They are just a bunch of funny and great gals to chat with. I know I may have missed some but they are not forgotten.

So I have to give a shot out to some of my good friends at Plurk and stop by their shops. You will not be disappointed.

It's About That Time Again!

I know it has been so long since I last posted on my blog. Sometimes there is just not enough time in the day to remember to do everything and be everywhere. I hope I can keep up with my blog because I really enjoy it.

Ok first I would like to introduce my new lip balm labels that I have been working on for a few days. Man these take up so much time. but I am happy with the final results. I even sold one since I added the new pics for the labels so they are working.



Shea Butter Lip balms that are made from scratch using my own recipe and they come in a wide variety of flavors such as: Fresh Mint, Pina Colada, Vanilla Hazelnut, Watermelon, Strawberry, Great Grape, Banana Blast, Wild Berries, Fudge Pop, Jumpin Java, and Creamy Coconut. I will be adding the Blueberry and the Peach again soon.

Ok so about what time is it again you ask? Time to get these soaps moving. I am seriously overstocked to my eyeballs in soap. I am running out of space and I need to get them moving again. So I will be running a Overstock sale at the following locations:

Etsy Shop: Prices in our Cold/Hot and Glycerin soap categories are already marked down to 15% off

Artfire Studio: Use Code "10OVERSTOCK" to receive 15% off in the soap categories only

Zibbet Shop: Same Use Code "10OVERSTOCK" to receive your 15% off in the soap categories only

US Flat Rate shipping for 4, 6 and 8 bars of soap will ship Flat Rate $5.00
Other countries Canada and Elsewhere see shop shipping prices.

You can't pass this up. This is a open date sale so it can end in 4 days or 4 weeks.

Check out your soap choices....

Monkey Farts Cold Process Soap
