In process

I’m going to be trans­fer­ring all the pages from their cur­rent loca­tions into the blog for­mat while updat­ing them. That means you’ll be see­ing some old stuff and new stuff, series of arti­cles and stand­alones. Depend­ing on how much updat­ing a par­tic­u­lar arti­cle takes, there may be a bunch on one day, or just one. I’m hop­ing to get at least one a day done, in any case!

So bear with me, and com­ment away.

I was under the impres­sion that my address would only be avail­able to some­one who I trans­act with on ebay and that my per­son­al (home) address would be required if I’m not trad­ing as a busi­ness. I don’t have anoth­er address nor does ebay accept PO box­es. You mean every­one who wants to can see it? :O

I should read their site again, but off hand, do you have any rec­om­men­da­tions? http://​www​.tech​nomom​.com/​w​r​i​t​i​n​g​/​o​n​l​i​n​e​.​s​h​tml

Ps. I stum­bled onto your site and unusu­al­ly for me, I think I’m going to have a look around. 🙂

Oops. I didn’t know the mes­sage I left pre­vi­ous­ly was meant to be a com­ment to the “In Process” arti­cle. I thought it was to a gen­er­al­ly “guest book” board.

I got con­fused after hav­ing per­formed a search on “com­ments” and hav­ing a num­ber of arti­cles opened in tabs at the same time.

Since the com­ment is irrel­e­vant to your post, please con­sid­er not pub­lish­ing it (and this ‘com­ment’), but of course it’s not up to me or nor would I tell you what to do with it. I should have been more care­ful and I do apol­o­gise. 🙂

Hi Michelle! Don’t wor­ry about where the com­ment went. The arti­cle in ques­tion hasn’t been moved to the blog for­mat yet, so what you did was just right!

Yes, eBay does require some kind of “real” address when you cre­ate any account with them, and unless some­thing very sig­nif­i­cant has changed, any­one can make a request to them for your address, as I said.

My solu­tion is to use an address that isn’t a PO Box, but is a “drop” address, such as a UPS Store address. You can make it look like a street address by using “ste # XXX” where you’d usu­al­ly write “box # XXX” and mail will arrive just fine.

I’m not affil­i­at­ed with them in any way, but I like the fact that UPS Store mail­box­es are also more ver­sa­tile than PO Box­es. They’ll accept deliv­er­ies of any sort for you, instead of just US mail. Your pri­va­cy is also bet­ter pro­tect­ed, in my expe­ri­ence.

Good luck!
