No.. .not really an update. The $10L sale is over. I appreciate everyone who came to the store and grabbed the shoes. I 3 my customers very much.

Today.. well.. the 26th is my 2nd Rezday. As it is very much like a birthday, and I usually take stock on birthdays, I've been thinking on alot of things.

I came to SL for fun. OMG I didn't come here for sex, drugs, Gor, or to make money. I came for the chance to have fun and be someone else. Lately, I've lost the reason I came here.

I work alot in SL now. Running a business here is.... time consuming at the least. You need to be every part of the business. You are the designer, creator, marketing, Customer Service. Alot of bigger designers hire someone to do these things for them. I'm not a bigger designer. After two years of shoe making, you'd think I would be.

And here in lies the rub. Two years. 730 days. I don't think there has been a day, without it being LL's fault, that I haven't logged in. I've spent two years of my life, building, designing. I love it. I really do. I love having my creative vision made real.. well.. virtually real. But I kinda figured after two years, I'd be a bit bigger. I'm still a relatively unknown shoe maker.

Not expecting over night success. I've read all the blogs about marketing in SL. I've been doing most of those things from the beginning. Maybe I'll get some anon posts telling me what I'm doing wrong. Hey.. maybe even some NON anon posts.

I guess what I'm saying here is, I'm closing the store at the end of the month for a few days. Just gonna do a little revamp. Hopefully I'll get some great feedback and hear what people wanna see from me.

Here's to another year, hopefully. Thank you for all the support over these two years. Thank you to the bloggers who have reviewed my store. Thank you to the people who bought my first HORRIBLE shoes. Thank you to the people who drop notecards on me about how much they like my stuff. And a preThank you for the people who leave me a comment and some feedback. I appreciate it. Good or bad, nice or snarky. Tell me I suck, tell me I rock. Tell me what YOU wanna see from ME and my Brand.
