How long did it take?

How long were you on redbubble before you got your first sale? I have been on there for over two weeks now and no sells. I have advertised on myspace,facebook,craig's list,my own website, and in some of the forums I am a member of. I know the state of the economy is hitting everyone hard....but I seem to be in the worst dryspell of my life. I only work seasonally as a tax preparer so the rest of the year I rely on income from my crafts and photography and writing. None of my crafts are selling not even the teddy bears, no sales on the photograpy, writing takes 2 weeks to get approved for $2 or less per article. I have never been to the point of absolutely nothing coming in for months on end before but here I am. Add to that the fact that I haven't had any progress with getting the back child support that the ex owes (over $27,000.00) and my finanacial state is not good at all. I am over drawn at my bank, I owe over $60,000.00 in student loans that are in default, and cc bills are over due also. Anybody else doing as badly as I am?

I don't sell anything, but know that I have nothing extra to buy anything. I hope things start going for you. Good luck.

Me too. I will be listing a couple of teddy bears soon so maybe they will sell. I just need things to turn around in a major way.

Almost as badly here with hubby's job loss over a month ago, sweet. We are now a month behind on mortgage and all other bills.
