An Idea! (Good, Bad, Illegal?)
Sometimes I come up with crazy ideas without thinking them through properly. So though at the moment I'm thinking "Hey, why not!!!?", I thought I'd see what others opinions are. There must be some reason this isn't already being done that I don't know about.
The idea: Our own private auctions on our blogs or websites. I'm thinking I could put a critter up on a separate page of my blog called "auctions" or something like that. If people prefer to remain anonymous while bidding, they could simply e-mail me with their bid. I'd have to monitor my mail often and update the "current bid amount" as it went along. I'd probably also have to notify past customers that I'm doing this since most of my blog followers are also starving artists, lol.
Though I give a portion of my sales to animal charities each month, I'd like to be able to give an even bigger percentage (50%) of any animals sold via my auctions.
So..........stupid idea, good idea, I'll get in big trouble by the big, bad e-bay idea......??
