Dear Fellow Etsy Refugees,
It has been a rough week for many of us who have chosen to seek refuge outside of EtsyCorp, mostly due to the coralgate scandal which has rightfully upset a large portion of sellers.
As I write this, I am physically, mentally, and emotionally exhausted. I'm hoping this can be a place where we can come together to support one another in this difficult transition, free from censorship, muting, deletion, and undue criticism of our motives and integrity. I hope you will join me in crying, venting, celebrating, laughing, and hopefully, finding a way forward.
Leaving a place that was like a second home to you, and closing up the shop you worked so hard on, is an emotional experience, and I know I sure could use some support and camaraderie!
Welcome and grab a seat, a cup of coffee, and a box of kleenex if necessary.
