The Treasury Is Full Right Now


I'm pretty sure that Etsy is trying to kill me with this whole Treasury business. They say that there is only room for so many Treasury lists & that your opportunity to make one of your own will materialize when enough lists expire down to that magical number, 333. Thing is... I don't believe em! This must be some hellacious marketing sheme to get me coming back to the Treasury again & again, and what's sad is it's working. I've watched & waited like a maniac for over a week now (even set my alarm for 5:45am yesterday) in order to snag one of these coveted lists & all to no avail. I probably won't give up, because I'm OCD like you wouldn't believe, but I am going to do something about it in the meantime. Drastic times call for drastic measures! That's right- I'm making my own damn list & hosting it right here on KOSHi BLOG. And you know what? I'm not gonna stop there... Oh no! I'm gonna start me a whole series of lists. I'll be a Treasury list making fool! You watch. You'll see... Wahahahaha!!!

I know how you feel. I tried for over a month and gave up. Then last week on whim I clicked on the Treasury and it was at 346 or so. I waited about 10 minutes at the bottom of the page, didn't refresh, and had my mouse and keyboard ready to copy/paste my title. It is possible to get one, just let go of trying so hard (like I did) and you'll probably nab yourself one :)

Then, when the time is close, just sit there. Don't do anything else--just sit and watch the numbers drop for 15-20 minutes, until the magic box appears called "Name Your Treasury." I find that if I don't sit there and watch the thing like a hawk, I forget to go back in time to get one! :-P
