1) This shit is hard, yo.
2) Every sale is like a mini hit of Ecstasy (or what I'd imagine Ecstasy to be like ;).
3) Just when you think you've figured it out, turns out you've probably effed up royally on something.
4) The forums are as dramatic and catty as Melrose Place, only most of us aren't as good looking (not you elgarbo)
5) Etsy can suck 6 hours of your life away in the blink of any eye (I'm not getting a sale today. Must... stop... refreshing...)
6) People buy the weirdest shit imaginable on etsy. Eventually, one day, someone will buy your weird shit. Promise!
That's all for now. Feel free to add your own!
This will get you to the full thread. I personally think it's worth reading as a lot more stuff came out of it than just this short list. :)
