Cool Chart Tuesday

I know that some people are interested in selling what they sew and others aren't. But I bet everyone would be at least a little interested in knowing what it's like - how easy is it to sell stuff (on etsy, for example) and how much money could a person make...

Well, this infographic doesn't provide all the answers, but it does track one person's crocheting for three months. Uloni tracked how long she spent crocheting items, how long each item sat in her etsy store before being sold, and where in the world it was sent. It's pretty cool to think of someone in a foreign country paying for and wearing your stuff, isn't it?

None of this would be possible without the internet - even though I lived through it (not that it's over), I still sometimes have trouble conceiving of how much the internet has changed our world...
