Almost ready for Prime Time February 28, 2015 19:55
We've been cranking hard on getting this store ready for our Official Grand Open, and all of the Neurons Not Includians are getting bleary-eyed. We've been moving items in to NNI from our Etsy and Amazon shops, and some genius in the group decided now would be a good time to try to standardize things like picture
s and descriptions across all our stores.
While we all agree that this is a Good Thing, we underestimated the complexity of the project, which may be the understatement of the week. Maybe the decade.
Over the years (we started this business in 2009), somehow we managed to create well over 500 items. While that alone makes our head hurt, we should point out that all of those items are original creations. That gets even more mind-melting when you realize for every creation we list, we probably threw out 5 to get one we liked. I think I need to lie down.
Being naturally ADD (Look! a shiny thing!), trying to stay focused on getting all of the sites to line up has been darn near impossible. Add in a couple of technical mishaps, and we needed an adult beverage more than once, which did not help our organization and focus, but did help keep us from running screaming into the street, which is good because our homeowners association is pretty strict about that stuff.
So, we're getting close. Soon we'll turn this thing on Full Power and see if we can make our little corner of the Interwebs a place people want to visit. Wish us luck!
