I have been motivated to write online by a former member known as @catlord. You may also remember him as glassdesk (twitter). He hails from Canada. He does unique crafting which he has shared through his writing. He is a website programmer/designer by trade. Catlord was my referrer and mentor at Knoji.
Catlord has written many times about having to work night shifts which have taken a toll on his health. It has been difficult for him.
We have all been through the dilemma of working a job that we are not happy with to get money for supporting a family. I have suggested that he try selling his unique crafts through Etsy. He has restocked his site and proudly reports that within a short time has made his first sale, one of his "coin" rings.
What goes around, comes around. I hope he can do well selling the items he loves to make. Motivation can be a two-way street.
