PROS and CONS: Etsy vs. StorenvyPROS and CONS: Etsy vs. Storenvy20 hours ago in Reviews & Guides More Like This
A few years back, I wrote a comparison of eBay vs Etsy and the pros and cons of both (plus a review of eBay's shop format). Now, the marketplace has another contender that's definitely worth noting for independent artists - Storenvy. Time to re-evaluate!
Note: I've left eBay off this list because I don't use it actively anymore and never found it very effective for me as an artist beyond occasionally auctioning off originals using the free monthly auction style listings. It also hasn't changed much since my last review, except for allowing a higher amount of free auction style listings per month for sellers.

We’d braved our way across the bridge and settled down by a beautiful tree. The tree’s and the water and the people drifted all around. The sun was having a party and so all wore their best colours. We sat down by a big tree and separated the mushrooms into two equal piles. They tasted like earth itself, very natural and raw with a subtle tinge of tang to be found somewhere, I enjoyed them. We chose this spot because no one else was on here, but these two other brave souls had now ventured over and settled down a few meters from us. A few minutes later a cop then ventured over, he began to tell the other lads that they were not happy that we had trespassed onto the forbidden and sacred island within Sefton Park, and kindly asked them to move. This gave us time to stub out our joint before he approached us, and we accepted to move. Turns out he was just a community officer in one of those Mobile CCTV Unit vans… another d

“Let me guess,” My best friend Alice started. “You have been playing otome games all night long in pursue of a certain guy. And now when you were finally about to beat his route, your PSP’s battery died on you.” Ouch! She he the nail on the head, though it was to be expected. After all Alice was not only my best friend, but also the class genius.
“Awww, what’s wrong otaku? Virtual boyfriend dumped you?” Asked a smug voice from behind. Oh joy! If it wasn’t bad enough I had to drag myself out of school with zero hours of sleep only to have my PSP fail me, I now had to go into boss battle. I swiftly turned around, finding myself face to face with the demon king. Also known as Erik.
My rivalry with Erik first started in kinder garden when he called otome games “lame”, and then proceeded to throw my game in the school foun

Well well, we’re getting to the last 7, and 5 of them are the most popular choices I’ve seen, while I have 2 special characters lined up! So, what better way to kick off #7 with one of the popular choices?
Alright, we all know that we got Mewtwo a couple months ago, and there’s a big consensus that the Mario franchise have been over-represented, having 7 characters, 6 if you don’t count Dr. Clone-io, and that the Pokemon franchise already 5 characters by default, with Mewtwo as DLC. There’s another consensus that there’s no grass starter to fit the trifecta of starter Pokemon. This is why a lot of fans a clamoring over Sceptile, one of the 3 starters of the 3rd generation. Now, that would be over-representing Pokemon, but that would counter-balance the over-representation of the Mario franchise. So, let’s look at Sce

Saint Michael the Archangel, defend us in battle. Be our protection against the wickedness and snares of the devil. May God rebuke him, we humbly pray; and do Thou, O Prince of the Heavenly Host - by the Divine Power of God - cast into hell, satan and all the evil spirits, who roam throughout the world seeking the ruin of souls.
On September 25, 1888, following his morning Mass, Pope Leo XIII became traumatized to the point that he collapsed. Those in attendance thought that he was dead. After coming to consciousness, the pope described a frightful conversation that he had heard coming from near the tabernacle. The conversation consisted of two voices – voices which Pope Leo XIII clearly understood to be the voices of Jesus Christ and the Devil. The Devil boasted that he could destroy the Church, if he were granted 75 years to carry out his -plan (or 100 years, according to some accounts). The Devil also asked permissi

A college couple are stuck in a studio apartment with 100 degree heat. No this isn’t the start to a joke, or a porno. There’s other places you can get your jollies. This isn’t one of them.
The painter, a curly brunette named Maria, is in a sports bra and gym shorts while the other, a fashion designer named Tonya, is simply just wearing a tank-top and short shorts. The only thing they had to combat the weather was a two foot cubical fan.
“Maria!” Tonya whined laying on the wooden floor. “Put down the book and go get me an ice-cream bar.” Well, the fan and food that will give you diabetes. The older of the couple looked away from her book and down from her spread out position on the couch.
“Here I thought you were a sophisticated lady.” Maria said with an exhausted expression.

I'm sorry that you think people bully you, but really, we don't. It's called sticking with our own opinion. You think people are just horrible things and truth is... you are the worlds biggest bully. No offense hon, but you are the real reason for all that bullying. I'm trying my damn hardest to be nice to ya'll because honestly... I feel bad for you. You get turned against easily yes, but it's because you block people 24/7, you don't even give people a chance. I am sorry that I called you a bastard. I have a lot going on too.

GrandmaLately, it's been chaotic. For two weeks, I've had to help my mother care for my grandmother. She's fallen ill, and very fast. I've had to help stand her and hold her so my mother could clean her and place adult underpants on her. I've had to help give her sponge baths and dress her, give her water, wait on her hand and foot, basically. It's been hard. It was even harder watching her take her last breath. She was my neighbor for 20 years. I grew up with her, she helped raise me. She definitely is an inspiration, though. She moved around a lot when she was younger, and was never raised on a farm, but she gave herself to it after marrying my grandfather. She is seriously the strongest woman I know. But she's gone. I can't so much as even look at her house next door anymore without tearing up. I'm avoiding the living room of my own house because her picture is in there, facing the entire room. I love her, and it's just so surreal. I watched her die, I watched them bury her, I watched as hGrandma10 hours ago in Emotional More Like This

What Did I Write?I wish I could tell someone how I feel about this. I can't the days seem longer without you here. I can't seem to be that silly, lovable, dork that most people want me to be. Sometimes I wondering if there was a way any way to go back... back to the way things were, but for what? What was then? I don't even remember then. Then only seemed like a dream that we all longed for. You know I can't even remember the last I smiled for real, I can't keep these fake feelings forever you know. It isn't that easy. I'm trying my hardest, don't I get credit for the hard work that I've been going through. I lost friends, family, and memories that will or would be forgotten.

Bittersweet Heartbreak (A two-faced Janus)I know I am dreaming when I think about love. But I don't want it to be a dream;so my emotions are tangled; and I end up weeping, solitary and mangled. I dream of sweet love... but on the flip side of the coin... i dream of sorrow and heartbreak and lost joy. Why does it feel so good to succumb to tears? To be weak and dream of the endless frontier; of heartbreaks... They say grief is an aphrodisiac, (I have no clue if I spelled that right). But why do I want to be sad!? I don't wan to give up on my life! Perhaps I am afraid of love and men; so I keep on dreaming of sadness again and again; to remind myself that love is just a fantasy; to stimulate my sensual perception; but remember that it always ends badly.Bittersweet Heartbreak (A two-faced Janus)11 hours ago in Emotional More Like This

The way some say summer is day. A summer rain is just like a daytime cry. Flooding everything on the way, but goes just as fast as it came. Always that "Not here. Not now". You almost really never wish for it. No one does.
But sometimes you enjoy it, you know. You really do. "Screw this." and you let it go. Even though you forgot your umbrella, you walk in it like in a fresh shower. And you are free. As free as 4th of july, as free as the mountain man, as free as that seagull you saw hovering alongside by your cruise yacht. Wind in its feathers, salty waters on his feet, sun in his eyes, and a voice that can scream.
You just carelessly let it all out. It should haunt you. Your weakness - in front of all those people. But it doesn't. You don't remeber your tears, your loudness, their faces staring blankly at pure madness. You said it, you spitted it and now you're freed of it. Freedom means being mad enough to escape from whatever holds
The Eye of the World by Robert Jordan: A reviewTolkien is renowned for his work on the world of The Lord of the Rings and I never thought he had a rival.

The Eye of the World is the first out fourteen books (fourteen!) by Robert Johnson (the last three also partly written by Brandon Sanderson, which gave me a positive sign here!) in the Wheel of Time series. Set in a large fictional land, where ages rise and fall, legends pass into myth then forgotten about only for ages to return again, it follows (for the most part) Rand al’Thor, a normal sheepherder in Emmond’s Field who lives a simple life with his father Tam. However, the arrival of four guests for a festival to their town, including a lady and her protector, seems to start a series of events.

My college roommate and I, both poor and both from rural northeastern Louisiana, used to get out maps at night and dream about driving way way way out to where the states were "flat". Yuma, Arizona seemed like the end of the world. We wondered what it would be like to start again without all the things we were missing- confidence, the biological fathers we never knew, money and security. . . We imagined who we could be in Yuma.
