So this is it – our last ever weekly Questions & Answers blog post! I already mentioned this briefly in last week’s post and today I’ll give some more info on why I’m ending this series of posts and more importantly – what comes next.
There are three main reasons as to why I’ve decided not to continue with these posts as they are at the moment.
1) Repetitive questions. As we have covered HUNDREDS of questions in these 60 posts, I find that I’m receiving the same questions more and more often and it just doesn’t make sense for me to keep repeating the same things over and over. Instead I could just point you to the previously answered question.
2) Hard to find information. All 60 of these Q&A posts are named in exactly the same way – “Your eBay & eCommerce Questions Answered” followed by the number. This makes it very difficult to find previously covered topics via my blog search or via Google.
3) More in-depth answers. Many times you ask questions that would require a much deeper response, with me giving more detailed tips and advice. With the current format that’s really not possible as it would take up too much of my time to give detailed answers to every question. Plus it would make these posts extremely LONG.
With all this taken into account, I think it will be better for all parties involved to change the FORMAT of these posts.
So here’s what will happen from now on – you’re still more than welcome to send your questions in! I still WANT them! And I will still answer ALL emails personally as usual BUT the weekly post won’t consist of multiple questions anymore.
Instead, I will do whole posts on ONE of the questions you have sent it! So that I can dig deeper into that topic and give more detailed advice.
This way I can fix all 3 problems I previously mentioned and in my opinion, this will help grow this blog as we move forward, by building a valuable archive of real life problems and topics that you can always refer back to in the future. [Read more…]
