Worldwide eBay Boycott makes this relevant...

On May 1, 2008, another Boycott of eBay will begin. So many changes, so many new problems.

Sellers with Feedback numbers under a hundred - such as myself at 63 FB/ 100% positive - will find themselves in the unreachable back of the line of listings. To eBay, the smaller Seller is not worth supporting. Although we will be paying the same fees as everyone else, we will see significantly less exposure, and therefore fewer sales.

In addition, eBay's partner PayPal will be able to put a hold on payments to smaller Sellers - for up to 21 days. Sellers are expected to ship items without having received cleared payment, or risk a Negative Feedback from Buyers. Oh...and here's the big one:

Sellers will no longer be able to leave anything but Postive Feedback for Buyers.

Here's a bit of editorial comment I did for an Art Contest on eBay a couple of months ago. It seems appropriate to post it now. (I will be finishing the next two pages in the next couple of weeks.

Since listing this for auction on eBay seems dicey right now, the only place you may be able to see it is here in my Blog.

A HUGE Thank You!

I haven't posted in this blog for a long time, so it's long past time to do so...

The very first order of business is a huge THANK YOU to Melia Newman of Be Mused Art Studio and Gallery, for featuring an interview of me on her website! It was a wonderfully kind and generous thing to do! Melia plans to interview two artists a week on her site - please follow the link at the right to see the artists she has featured!

I "met" Melia on the Art & Artists Discussion Board on eBay. She is one of many marvelous artists who sell their original art on eBay and on other online venues. (If you are looking for original art at extremely reasonable prices, search the Self-Representing Artists category on eBay!)

Please check out to see Melia's lovely work!
