Bobbie sent me this story and asked if she could post it on her blog. After reading it, I wanted to be sure lots of you were able to read it. So, here’s Bobbie’s story…enjoy!
To my LolliShop Friends:
Beginning on September 8, 2008, the day I joined the LolliShops Guild
..I wondered how long it would take for me to make 100 friends….seemed like
a lot to me!! I mean there were nearly 600 or more members when I joined. I was sure it would be months!!
friends grow or climb the ladder to 100.
planting the seeds to grow the business! 🙂 he,he Last week, October 8th my LolliShops Friends Ladder ……reached 100..funny…one
Friends” story and send them a little something special. It would be sort of like a giveaway in reverse…nobody knew what I was planning.
But then, how fair is that to all my friends who had been hanging onto the ladder while I was waiting for number 100.
This has been a lot of fun. The positive attitudes that the members here at LolliShops Guild are so encouraging and welcoming its no
wonder I filled up my ladder in just one month!!! Just image what the future holds!!!
How sweet is that?
I remember telling Lori Karla at the beginning of summer, that I wanted to create a marketplace where we could sell our creations, vintage & supplies–yes–but more importantly, where like minded artists could support one another. A marketplace that was community driven–not based on competition. This story encourages me that we are headed in that direction with LolliShops–it’s been a sweet ride so far.
