Rumors of My Demise Have Been Greatly Exaggerated.
In case you are wondering ... I am still alive and doing very well.
Contrary to a little rumor going around. I have not stopped blogging because my new employer Buy.com, told me too. I'm not blogging much lately because I'm very busy at my new job and my time and energy is being spent helping make Buy.com's Marketplace the best place on the web for online merchants.
I still follow eBay, Amazon and even Bonanzle. In fact I just talked to eBay managers yesterday about Tuesday's announcements, but when I sat down to write the post, I just lost interest -- Ina, Scot and Tamebay covered the announcements very well; there was no need for my 15%.
The only reason I'm blogging tonight is because a commenter on Ina's ProStores blog post mentioned a rumor that I stopped blogging because my boss at Buy told me to stop bashing eBay. Anyone who knows my boss would laugh at that.
I still love blogging and will get back to it regularly when I can figure out a better writing schedule. I am a creature of habit and I had a routine that has changed since I started working at Buy. I haven't figure out a new schedule yet.
For those of you still reading:
I really love what I'm doing. I'm going on my 3rd month at Buy.com and really enjoying myself. Not many people even know that Buy has a marketplace, but that will all change this year. I call us "the little marketplace that could", because nobody even includes us in the marketplace discussion. Buy.com is known as a retailer, but we are so much more than that.
Just my 15%
