it also kind of made me go WTH??? and I wasn't sure whether to laugh again...... it is almost hard to understand sometimes why some will choose to battle those who have never shown any intentions whatsoever to do them any sort of mention or harm. And I guess it is funny to me why someone who speaks for so many (not just voicing her own opinions) but in fact is in charge of a site and what is it? I am wondering what is it that makes someone make the kind of statements that have been made in the past week or so.
First of all I would think that sour grapes would have to be the most significant answer. She is upset perhaps even jealous that the "exodus" did not flock to her venue. And she might say that she is part of the "exodus" but anyone like me who actually looked at the venue before this controversy saw about 41 pages of sellers.....and the pages there by the way are not full of sellers..... a couple of them actually had 2 sellers.... one of them was blank and some of them had "collectives"....the site owners' shops perhaps? I didn't spend any time checking into that but had actually checked out the venue once again to see the "change of rules and now allowing a new category"....yep---"vintage" items.... because yes it is a pretty known fact that I do love vintage and for some reason am still buying way more of it than I will ever sell if I live 2 lifetimes even LOL!
But my point is that I still only see those 41 pages of shops and I also did not see even a "small" increase in the number of items there since the last time I looked.... and I will repeat this..... I looked BEFORE THIS EXODUS to Zibbet the one that actually made the site crash (yep that one) (not hers LOl!) ---the most recent one in the past couple of weeks that is :) and I do not see any big stampede headed in her direction.
Now.... I could be missing something here..... but instead what I am sensing especially by the statements of "BY popular Demand a so called importer from Zibbet" has been introduced....... and to me it's kind of like LMAO. Okay... all of those free shops on Zibbet are gonna flock to a site (hers) where they have to pay?..... they are gonna flock to a site that when you google them does still not even show the "green" safe button to click on it.....are they still running in beta over there???? Not sure.but ????? yep??????----
that is still what I am seeing ^^^^^^^^^ that big grey question mark that tells you the site is not safe are you sure you want to go there.....hmnnnnnnnnnnn
But what I am quite confident of is that this site (ZIBBET) that she somehow has some sort of sour grapes over because they have caught the huge influx of new peeps..... it will be interesting to see how large those 41 pages of sellers over there grow after that "popular demand" she stated is happening.
Anyone who didn't mind clicking on that venue even tho their search engine probably warned them that the site is not safe to click on...... could easily see how many shops and items were there before she made these type of statements...and how many are there now. It's all easy peasy pardner.
I don't have any vested interests in any of these sites or venues. I am not a spokesperson for any of them by the way and do not receive any endorsements from any of them although I do fear that some of my statements could possibly have resulted in my items being "buried" in the search every now and then LOL!
And the thing is.... I really think she has sincere intentions of "handmade" and helping and wanting all on her site to be successful...... but her actions in my opinion are the thing that may be hurting her in the long run.
That being said..... I myself.... say what I feel and can easily state my own opinions and reactions to things.... but I am only an individual. And when you get to a point where you are some sort of a "leader" or "representing" something..... it is indeed at that point and time when you are speaking for everyone who is a part of your team and also you are speaking to anyone you hope will someday be on your team.
And that to me is why I am glad I only speak for myself and can say what I want as long as I am not intentionally trying to hurt someone. But if you are out there "representing" my opinion would be this...
sometimes you just need to suck up some of them sour grapes and turn them into fine wine some day instead of busting out too soon and whining about them in the 1st place.
Just my rambling for the day. So much for sour grapes.... :)
