This is a hard post to write, mainly because it’s hard to force yourself to do something when you’re feeling highly unmotivated and unproductive.
Plus I don’t know what to say except that I’m going to take the Finds of posts, you know, those thrift scoring posts to another medium that I will be sharing here very soon!
I’ve decided to do V-logs of all future thrift scores and put them on YouTube and embed them here, of course.
After I do multiple listings of items whether they are on eBay, Depop, Poshmark, etc., it’s hard to be excited to write about them here. Real talk. Yes, I could copy and paste them, but I pride myself on my unique voice and in not duplicating anything.
Thanks so much to all of my new readers! You’re awesome and I do notice that you’ve been exploring this site. Thank you so much, I really appreciate it. It’s ironic that I’ve not been as active here lately.
Real talk, part one: there’s no other way to say this, either: I’ve been feeling awful for the last couple of months due to illness.
What the heck, body? I recovered from pneumonia over a month ago and then just a little over a week ago, I got laryngitis and then another cough from hell. Sometimes it’s hard to get up in the mornings with how worn down my body feels. The show must go on, as always.
Back to the hustles.
I’ve been slowly moving away from relying on eBay over the last few months. It’s been a disappointing experience there, between the flakes and nonsensical emails that I’ve been receiving that border on hostile.
Poshmark has been consistently decent but with the selling fee of 20%, those can add up quickly. They’ve been offering some cool new features on the app that include the ability to offer private discounts to people that “like” your items.
On the flip side of that, I’ve been finding myself annoyed with the barrage of private discount offers that I’ve started “unliking” items so I can cut down on my notifications. It’s rare that I like things on there but the ones that I do like are serious couture like Jean-Paul Gaultier and original Alexander McQueen.
Next hustle is that I am up for what could be described as a management job in the resale business and I’ll leave it at that. It takes time to get hired and I’m trying to work out the fine points with scheduling around everything else.
What little attention I have to spare lately has been tending to my girls and starting yet another site, lol. Another idea right under my nose the entire time, Bluenette, where blue and brunette collide.
On a daily basis (and even several times a day), I’m asked very detailed questions about my hair. It’s funny now because sometimes I forget that I have it and I’m all, hmmmm? What’s nice is that the range of products available to get your blue on is growing exponentially and you’re not limited to just Manic Panic like I was back in the day.
Hopefully, I’ll be on the mend soon. I can’t wait to share what’s coming up!
