We’ve settled into a 2 week release schedule for That’s a good because I tend to stuff more and more features in until the release gets too big.

This is what’s getting released this month:
1. Hover images on the search page. Can you believe eBay charges sellers for enlarged pictures?
2. Sort a seller’s items by watchers on the search page.
3. Product Gallery Banner shows items sorted by watchers.
4. Better logs and an alert system to tell me if something is wrong with the banners.
5. A FAQ page.
6. Better landing page from the watcher counter.
7. Better landing page for search engine traffic.

…and a ton of other little things.

Oh, yeah, I added a cool “tweet this” button because I’m a Twitterhead now.

Twilight, Sookie Stackhouse and Anita Blake have serious fans… like me

I saw the movie Twilight on yesterday. I resisted watching the movie for quite a while. That’s strange for me since I’m a huge fan of Laurell K Hamilton’s Anita Blake series and Charlaine Harris’ Sookie Stackhouse series. I’ve attended 3 of Laurell’s book signings and 1 of Charlaine’s.

Perhaps I was simply fighting getting sucked into another long series when I’m trying to focus on Watched Item work. I give up. I’ll just combine Twilight and Watcheditem.

Well, I wrote for about an hour on the popularity of the Twilight tshirts, books and charms. WordPress logged me out and lost my edits. I give up. Just imagine it was fascinating. 😉

Contemporary Oil Painting Artists on eBay

Filed under: eBay — estreet @ 4:29 pm

There are 3 similar contemporary Oil Painting artists on eBay: Art-Coast (the original from Chicago), GreatOilPainting (from China), and AvantArtDeco (from China).

Art-Coast, aka Paula Nizamas, is very popular having 11 to 25 watchers per listing. She is quite a prolific seller who moves 25 to 35 paintings per month. The final price is around $250 to $400 each.

These sellers list their art at half the price of Art-Coast’s art. Their listing templates are definitely “borrowed” from Art-Coast.
