What is a Virtual Flea Market?

 The funniest things comes up when one is in a car for two hours on the way to a doctor's appointment.

The subject of my board A Virtual Flea Market on Pinterest came up.


My daughter in the back seat, asked What is a Virtual Flea Market, Mom?

It's like the Dog Trade,(it's what our local Flea Market is called) but everything is done on line, and the people online are from all over the place.
Some of them have stores on:
  1. Esty.com
  2. Amazon.com
  3. Ebay.com
  4. And a bunch more I can't think of off the top of my head. 
With my daughter's question answered she quickly moved us all onto another question, but her question got me to asking myself more questions.


Which Came 1st?  Egg or The Chicken?
Which Came 1st?  Egg or The Chicken?
That is a long standing argument to which came first.  They both can be sold at a Market, so it really doesn't matter to which came first, to me.  Don't sell all your Chickens at the market, or you won't have any eggs to sell in the future.  Was the best advice I was given.

The nice thing about Dictionary.com they have a section on Word Origin.
It was interesting to learn that the combination of words Flea Market started being used in the 1920's.  (How many generations ago was that?  Great-Grandmother Elsie might of been born by then.)

The history on the Word Market is older.  Which doesn't surprise me.

Humans have been trading goods between each other longer then that.  It wasn't until some smarty pants came up with the idea of Money that trading goods between each other started getting easier.
This Little Piggy Went To Market!

Sometimes the silliest things pops in my head when I'm writing.  I can't remember which toe it is that goes to Market.  So I really hope you got a giggle.

Because of my unplanned break I know for certain that the popularity of my group board isn't because I'm blogging about it.

At the time that I'm writing this there is 1.5k people on Pinterest following the board.  It is averaging 10 new people following it a day.  So-

Whatever Fridays- Click- Uhm? - What?- Curses! - Lost In Space Again?

  I hope that you are having a Great Whatever Friday.

WARNING- This pretty much going to be a RANT Post.

My biggest pet peeve on Pinterest!  It drives me nuts and makes me feel like I should be making my own little episodes of Lost In Space!  And what even ticks me off more is that my own Pins have came down with the sending people into their own Lost In Space episodes as well.

The old saying You get what you pay for certainly popped in my head when I discovered my pins were sending people off into Lost In Space.

What do I mean by Lost In Space?  It's where you click on an image on pinterest and it sends you somewhere that has nothing to do with the picture you clicked on.  Have you:
Click- Uhm? - What?- Curses! - Lost In Space Again?

Click- Uhm? - What?- Curses! - Lost In Space Again?

I was giving TrafficWonker a try, everything went fine the first week, the pins was taking the people clicking on the pin to where it's suppose to, so I didn't check the next week on the pins.

On week days I pin a lot of other people's pins, 1st checking to make sure the pin isn't a Lost in Space Episode.  I pin some of my stuff on Fridays, and a lot of my stuff on the weekends, so It wasn't until then that I started noticing a very big difference in my stats.

Bye Bye TrafficWonker, I gave you a try.
I hate being sent into Lost In Space. 
I'm Very Sorry.  Working On Fixing Problem.
I'm Very Sorry.  Working On Fixing Problem.
I'm really sorry, and I am busy checking all my pins to make sure they are not sending people into Lost In Space.

I really don't understand people's reasoning behind sending people into Lost In Space?

Do they not understand that most people don't give 2nd chances?

Do they not understand if all they have is Lost In Space Pins no one is going to follow them?

I can't change anyone but myself!

I'm done ranting.

I'm testing BoardBooster.  Keeping my fingers crossed.



Hope you are having a Great Whatever Friday.

Hope you have an even Greater Weekend.

Unplanned Break.

Whatever Fridays-Unplanned Break.

Whatever Fridays-Unplanned Break.


 I hope that you are having a Great Whatever Friday.

I've been burning the candle at both ends for almost a year, and it had been some time since the last time that I felt like a chicken with it's head cut off.
Are You Chasing the Chicken?
Are You Chasing the Chicken?

As a kid, I did help my grandfather one time in killing a chicken for dinner.  I was in charge of holding the chicken's feet while he took care of removing the chicken's head.  He wasn't too happy with me that I had let go of it's legs once he had removed the chicken's head.  In my letting go I learned that just because the chicken no longer had a head, it still could run around making a bloody mess.

My Grandfather turned around to go sit down telling me to come sit down and wait for it to run itself out.  No sense wasting your energy chasing after it when we still have a lot of work to do once it stops running around.

I learned how to prepare a chicken for dinner, but it's not something I want to do again.
I will buy my chicken from a store ready to cook instead of doing that again. (knock on wood)
The Phone Rang.


So I took a phone call and I suddenly felt like that chicken when it had fell over dead after all it's running around without a head.  Is why I shared the story of the chicken.

Getting a phone call telling you that a childhood friend has past away wasn't something I figured would happen until I was in my sixties, not in my forties.  I went to his memorial, and said my goodbyes, saw a bunch of school friends that I hadn't seen in over twenty years.  We left all going in different directions back to our lives, don't imagine I'll see most of them again until the next funeral.
Life Goes On.
Life Goes On.

We all deal with grief differently and it wasn't until I sat down at the computer to work on my blog that I found myself staring at a blank screen an hour later.  It was then I realized that his death was affecting me more then I had realized.  I did get a couple of blog entries done but they weren't anything that I wanted to post, so for September I didn't do any blog posts.
Having a Bad Day?  Do Something You, Normally Don't Do.
Having a Bad Day?  Do Something You, Normally Don't Do.
You can only go so long of burning the candle at both ends before there is nothing left of the candle.  Someone in their twenties might be able to go more than a year burning the candle at both ends, but I'm not in my twenties anymore.

I may of not been blogging in September, but I was still doing a lot of little things. There has been a lot of Reflecting along the way as well.
What Are You An Expert At?
What Are You An Expert At?
I have had my own experiences and run ins with so called Experts over the years; and that the words tends to make me snort and laugh now days.

I'm sorry, but a College Professor that teaches Business isn't an Expert in business. He is an expert in Business Theories. You can learn about the laws and regulations that the governments put on businesses, but you won't learn how to stick your hand out to a possible customer and say "Hello."
Hello World!
Hello World!
What I have always been good at is sales. Marketing is a whole Different Beast in my mind.
I wasn't busy blogging; I have been busy on Pinterest working.

Follow What's Next? The Future.'s board A Virtual Flea Market on Pinterest.

When I started 'A Virtual Flea Market' board on Pinterest, I never imagined it would become so popular so fast, but then there are many online my age that remember and know what a Flea Market is.

I'm pretty confident that I have found mine. In the future I will be sharing with you how I'm making Online Sales. I hope that with my sharing with you, that it won't take you 9 months before you make your first online sale.

For Me, I'm going to be working in the background on figuring out the Beast called Email Marketing.

Hope you are having a Great Whatever Friday.

Hope you have an even Greater Weekend.
