She followed me home. Can I keep her?

Got the confirmation e-mail from Kerbey Lane! Jittered for a few minutes about, you know, Spending That Kind of Money on a Doll. Sent the deposit.

Then went to Wimukt's shop on eBay and ordered a crapton of clothes, since Wimukt is now making adorable SD Graffiti girl things as well as adorable Unoa things.

Never said I was ruled by logic. As proof, would you believe this is the first time I've ever entered one of Volks' doll lotteries? I got Kanbei I by paying off someone else's unwanted lottery confirmation, and all my other Volks dolls have come to me secondhand. But they shot me down with Winter Smile Nono, yes they did.

In other ramblings, hmmm, I'm thinking that this Search Engine Optimization business may actually work, !@*#$#&@!. As an experiment, I changed several of my Etsy item titles to fit the SEO structure: no punctuation, no grammar, and no felicities of language, all of which goes seriously against my grain, but the Etsy Powers That Be swear this is the only way to go. My view count on those items and my shop favorites shot up by 60% within 24 hours, and have stayed there. No sales yet from the change, but the week between Christmas and New Year's isn't a big shopping period--and, let's face it, I have a very small niche audience to begin with. What I'm noticing is that I'm showing up much higher in Etsy's own internal search results for all the logical search terms, so I should catch some BJD-related shoppers who didn't come looking for me specifically.
