Teacher's Notebook

I have to admit that I have never been able to get on board with TpT- I don't know why I just have not signed up for one reason or another. 

I do have a {minor} confession though- I just don't think I can bring myself to "sell" my stuff online when I hate to have to "buy" things other teachers' make. I just feel as though we as teacher's all make so little as it is and all work so hard for things we create- and so the stuff I make I usually just end of linking to my blog for free. I honestly cannot afford to buy a bunch of new things for the classroom- as much as I wish I could. 

I'm still thinking it all over though and figuring out if maybe it would be beneficial. I do put a lot of time and effort to my items that I create.....I may look into this new website. 

I stumbled across this website from Lindsay at the teacher wife. Some of the sites key points are: 

Selling on Teacher's Notebook:
-NO Listing Fees
-First Year FREE (yes that's right, no Sale's fees for a YEAR!)
-Unlimited FREE items
-Keep 100% of all sales (minus PayPal fees)
-It's risk free! (You can cancel at any time)

I think I may check it out....

If you post on TpT- is it worth it?
Do you make a significant amount of money???

  2. I'm not sure how I feel about selling either..
    I have looked into this new site and it looks better than TpT - especially for the first year. It will be interesting to see if it takes off and has as much success as TpT..

  3. I agree with you on the selling thing, too. I see so many great ideas, and then I see the price tag and get discouraged. I've heard some people make great money, but I don't think I could go down the road. I've tried in the past, but clearly my stuff isn't up to par!

  4. I was hesitant to sell at first. It seemed like a daunting task. But, when you set your mind to it, it's definitely worth it. It's also quite addictive making items to post. :)
