Hi everybody,

I just added a new installment to my "Hourly Earnings" blog series, where I measure the value of my time spent on my online store.

For those of you who are contemplating online selling, I hope my experiences will encourage you to try it. Whether you choose Etsy, BigCartel, or any other available venue ... it doesn't take a big investment of time, and there's only one way to find out if it will work for you.

Enjoy!

At the blog, the link to the previous business posts doesn't work, it just keeps bringing up the same post. I would love to share these with a good friend.

The post about the online store is currently the most recent "Running a Business" post on my blog, so it is the first one to appear when you click "Running a Business." If you scroll down, you'll find all the earlier business-related posts.

Thanks so much for all the work you put into this. It's really great to have solid, comparable information.
I have the feeling your online store will boost your real time sales in 2013 ... I hope I'm right !
