Here’s the thing, I quietly posted items on my brand new Etsy store 8 days ago and waited for strangers to find me. As it turns out, that “stealth” method is awful. It’s quite embarrassing, actually. (My least viewed item has 1 view and my most viewed item has 19.)
With that said, I’m posting about it with my hands over my eyes. I’m scared that this won’t make any difference at all, as most of my Tumblr followers come from the fitspo genre. Still, I need to do something because I’m losing hope in myself and my dream. I’d put in countless hours doodling, sketching, drawing, painting, outlining, vectoring, photographing- not only for the few items currently in my shop, but for other endeavors as well. I’m so appreciative of everyone who has supported me, reblogged my artwork, given me praise, liked my instagram posts, commissioned a piece, and motivated me day in and day out, that I feel like stopping now would be letting my loved ones down. I dream of so much more than the small life I live. I’m a grateful person, but I know I’m selling myself short by sitting in an office 8.5 hours a day, swallowing anxiety and stress.
I have a lot to improve on, and I do hope you stay with me for the long haul.
