I received my 100th heart on Etsy today! This is very exciting! There are other Etsians out there with hundreds and thousands of hearts, but I think the 100th heart is a good milestone.
I remember when I first joined Etsy, looking at one of my now favorite shops, Woollyton, who was also in San Diego and sells the cutest polymer clay kawaii charms. She had something like 350 hearts, and I didn't even have one. I remember being so astonished by the high number of hearts and sales she had made in just a year! I thought I would never get that kind of popularity!
While I'm not quite as popular as Woollyton, and still can't figure out how she's managed to get so popular (although her product really speaks for itself), I'm really happy with the progress that I've made since last October. 21 sales! Not too shabby for 4 months...
I might as well put in a shameless plug for Woollyton in here. Make sure you check her out at http://woollyton.etsy.com
