Yes, I´m a little sad. And this is because the treasury I have curated today.

This was the first time in months that I have curated a treasury without rules, not for a team, not for a thread, not for a challenge. So I was really free to choose the theme and go through etsy to find the items that could match better.
As I love coffee and love the coffee items too, I thank in two stunning images of coffee at esty, the stunning necklace of Petitehermine that I have blogged days ago and the great image from Crystalphotography´s that she has showed as in coasters last days. With this in mind, take a look to others members of frenzy, looking coffee items and found two more. Looking a long time at etsy I could found great items about coffee in all kinds of.
I was really happy with it. Have promoted it before listing to increase clicks... and upsssssss... I didn´t take a look at treasuries before listing, and when I did, etsy was not actualize today, the 60 first pages (I watched all) only have treasuires from more than 10 hours, so mine was really difficult to get first...
I promoted, promoted, promoted, (thanks all who supported) and three hours later, seems like etsy get to life again, treasuries start improving, and we get first... But I´m not happy. If we have got this page in the first hour (any other day I promise we could do in minutes with this number of clicks) we could get to first. But with this delay others from less time gone up ours quickly. So we are now the #15 and downloading. Best place was #6... really dissapointed to me.
I think only going to have about 900 views and 200 clicks maximun what is poor than the treasuries of the last week... so sad, too effort, bad goal.

  1. You do an amazing job! Don't give up! I didn't have a lot of time to promote today, but keep it up! You'll get one to the top! I know you can do it!!!!

    Thanks for including my photo :)

  2. LB, you always good creating stunning treasuries! I am sure one day and soon you will be in the front page :) keep doing what you are doing now!
    Good luck!

  3. Aww, I'm sorry Lourdes, please don't feel sad :( You did a great job and sometimes you expect a lot from your treasuries because you're so successful with them. I wish I could do more to make you feel better.

  4. Next time it will happen for sure, Lourdes!

    If you really love this particular Treasury, could you save all the item numbers and then delete it?

    Could it be posted again as if it was brand new? It's not your fault that Etsy was messed up today. I'm sure everybody would be glad to comment and click on it again ... I know I would!

  5. Thanks for the comments, don´t apologize, I´ll curate lots of treasuries, I haven´t lost the hope, only get a bad result today.
    JQ don´t know if is good to repeat treasuries... I think gonna do some differents.

  6. Oh, Lourdes, don't be unhappy. Sometimes these things just happen.

    We still got to enjoy a wonderful Treasury so we're happy.

    There were treasury problems yesterday as well as today. It will be resolved.

    Keep on putting those Treasuries together. You have a real gift for them.

  7. We had some search problems and other bugs in the BNR too which probably slowed that down, so I think the Treasury part of Etsy has some problems with it because Etsy is working on it alot. Sometimes you can do everything right and still technical problems can mess things up.

    That doesn't happen everyday, though, so it will work eventually.

  8. It's a great Treasury. You do great work, look at what happened with the Blue one!

  9. The treasury is amazing! Don't be too hard on yourself..there's always next time.

  10. But it's wonderful! I'm sure you'll make more. You have a goal and that's great.

  11. Don't give up! Most of my treasuries only get 90 views!

  12. It is ok LB :) You have plenty of more times. And you still helped those in this treasuries with a LOT of views and exposure. Over 1000 views LB! That is AMAZING! Don't be so hard on yourself, you are doing a great job.

  13. 900 views is great! No reason to feel badly about that!

  14. Well done Sad! You do A great job and keep it up.
