Follow Up to the Upcoming Closing of the LaCreeperie Website


Ch-ch-ch-changes! If you've read this blog or followed me for any length of time, you'll know that I am constantly changing things up to not only stay relevant, but to try to maximize the success of my micro-sized e-commerce business. So, with that, this post is a follow-up to the previous one I wrote about closing down the shops for good.

I've recently had a tiny bit of success in getting my writing career off the ground, enough that I feel comfortable with the decision I've finally come to regarding the future of the shops. What this all boils down to is time management, largely. It's time I could spend writing, which has a better potential for earning me money than $8 books do. And let's be honest, I'm not doing this for my health, I need to make some sort of a living.

That's why I've decided that the website will be the thing to go. I will continue business as usual in the Etsy Shop from here on out. I will have a much lighter presence on social media (mainly Instagram) because joy-of-all-joys I don't have to spend the time hawking my wares on social media, begging people to buy my shit. This is because Etsy has it's own traffic, and it's enough to keep my shop happily chugging along. Oh, and don't worry if you're not signed up on Etsy, you can always check out as a guest, and it has all the same payment method options that I have on the website.

So for those who were sad to hear that LaCreeperie was going to be no more, rejoice! At least for the foreseeable future, unless I hit the literary jackpot! The website will stay open for a little while yet, probably until the first of the year (2019) I just won't be adding too many new titles to it.

I feel good about this decision, it is very freeing in more ways than one. After all, my motto this year is "work smarter, not harder" and this change will help me to do just that. I hope website customers will embrace the Etsy Shop, as there is now no difference in inventory, just a different look and actually a more efficient checkout system. Join me, won't you?
