I was also saying that I would avoid using family photos on my blog or shop. My children have certainly not asked to be featured and I'm sure my stuff is not 'cool'. People who know me well would recognise me from my blog but I'm afraid the rest of you are left guessing. I have also found it a bit unnerving recently to find pics of people whom I have 'met' on-line and formed a mental picture of. As you can tell I am a not a big fan of facebook - something which I might have to overcome.
So how do we form these images of other Folksters? Quality of work, general good manners and helpfulness on the forum, price (of work I mean!), attitude to promotion ( we all need to do it - I hope I don't over do it), number of favourited items, number of people 'favouriting' shop, followers and comments on blogs etc, content of blogs, feedback from transactions, profile..... I am OK with myself about most of these - some I would like to improve or maybe update as my shop evolves. The one criteria which does tend to bother me, and goodness only knows where I stand, is the 'whatever possessed her to make that?' query.
In my defense, I would say that I have always been interested in 'miniature' items and the observations that give detail to scenes or models, beyond that I think I just have a strange imagination. My husband is a bit bemused by my latest offerings. They are certainly different and seem to be generating interest. Now I am registered with HMRC and keep necessary paperwork - the planning office might be my next hurdle. I have an entire community planned!
I thought I'd like to see the first four together.
