I've been a crafter for over 30 years. I sew, make candles and soap. I've been selling my stuff by attending local craft fairs etc. I've been investigating selling over the Internet. Yes, I know about Etsy but I want my own web site. Building a site looks very time consuming. I have computer skills but not in web building so there will be a learning curve. The problem is it seems like once its built it will require a ton of time to keep it updated, upload pics, descriptions of products etc. Has anyone here done this and has it been profitable in the long run given the time investment? I just don't see how there is enough time in the day to make the products and keep a web site current too.
