Sunday Thoughts part Two.

I took over the LDS Etsy group not too long ago.
I don't know how I feel about it.
We are having a giveaway and only one person has entered. Seriously if you have a giveaway during one of these "giveaway hop" things online you get like 500 entries for rancid lotion and I have one for hairpins I buy all the time. They didn't even do any of the extra entry options.

I still haven't updated the face book page I created with everyone's pictures.
I haven't sold anything since I took over. OK last night I sold something and I do have "orders" that are contest entries. We are starting a treasury page but my sister reminded me that we have to be careful since it is a religious group.
I now appreciate those groups more- We are still in our infancy but it is hard getting a group off it's feel. How rude not to enter my giveaway. I'm planning to buy the item and send it to whoever wins. I guess Susan since she is the only entry.
The other day someone on twitter was recommending a famous ex Mormon blogger and I felt a little funny. a "recovering" Mormon? Really? I am pretty sure these people wouldn't want to be my friends. I have some friends that aren't Mormon anymore but I don't need someone who thinks Mormons are stupid. because I am Mormon. Don't be fooled by my cursing mouth. Anyway I am a little nervous that this etsy group could be blending work and church which I am a little wary of. I don't want to alienate people by seeming like I am pushing my religion on them. I don't want other sellers to leave comments on the treasury that they are not Mormon- just to let me know.
maybe my blog won't get famous for my lackluster postpartum depression and failure to leave what some see as an oppressive religion. Maybe I will get boycotted by people who don't want to buy from a Mormon.
I have all sorts of apprehension about this, but I hope our group does OK. or at least the giveaways.

have you considered promoting the giveaway somewhere like etsygiveaways.blogspot.com?
