The other day, my friend, Alyce Wilson (aka alycewilson ), hosted what she called a Virtual Holiday Bazaar over on her blog. Never one to shy away from stealing a good idea, I’ve decided to do something similar.
Here’s how it works:
Many of us have books and other things for sale which would make for great Christmas gifts (or birthday, anniversary or any other event you can think of), and chances are we’re all looking for things to buy. If you’ve got something to sell online, be it signed copies of books, links to commercial websites, merchandise etc, you’re welcome to leave a description and link in the comments, so folks know where to find it.
It can be anything you like, but please don’t post anything that might embarrass a delicate flower like myself.
If you want to leave a picture to help people choose, but don’t know how, I recommend you write your ‘comment’ as a draft post on your own LJ (you’ll need an account, but they’re free to open), uploading a picture or two as you would for a draft entry. Check the preview. Once you’re satisfied, that it looks okay and the links all work, switch the view of your draft entry from ‘Rich Text’ to ‘html,’ then cut and paste the whole lot into a comment over here.
‘What’s that you say? What am I selling?’ Well, since you ask, I thought I’d promote my Fur-Face CD/Mug combo.
Delivered by priority mail to anywhere in the USA for just $12.95 (incl P&P and sales tax), it makes a fabulous gift for both the writer AND reader in your life.
If you’d like to know more, just click on the photo above, but don’t forget to come back and check the comments to see what other folks have on offer.
Why not host a Virtual Christmas/Holiday Bazaar of your own? If you do, let me know and I’ll post a link to it here.
HAPPY SHOPPING EVERYONE
