New Upload Style


I often get asked to do evening uploads – I understand that in the middle of the day on Friday isn’t the best time for everyone. The noon time worked because of the time we need to spend after an upload where we print off all the invoices, print up shipping labels and generally orgaize things – it’s about 4 hours of computer work. Later uploads on Friday meant that the work spilled into my weekend or I’d spend Monday doing it which put us a day behind in shipping things. Anyhow – you really don’t need to know all this – but that’s the reason why.

I was thinking about things and we can run them differently to allow those working moms and international moms easier access to getting a doll and I’ve come up with a plan. I’m going to try something new this week – so, on Thursday night (time TBA) I will put up 20 dolls. Then on Friday I will put up the other 30 (or so) (time TBA as well). Then there will be another upload later on Friday afternoon for any dolls that got ‘stuck’ (again time TBA). Finally any dolls leftover will be put up as Serendipity over the weekend.

I think I have my google calendar worked out so I’ll get times up on there as soon as I can. Preview pictures of the Thursday night dolls will go up only a few hours before but eventually I’ll try to get those pictures up earlier – I’m going to play this by ear for a bit.

There you have it – a new upload style. I hope this works out!

    I live in Australia and waking at 4.40am isn’t always nice :p especially with two little ones who decide to party late :p

    Sounds AWESOME because I just got in trouble at work for being on the computer trying to get one of your dolls. Bummer, I didn’t get the doll but someday I will. As for my boss – I think she just likes writing people up!!!! Thank you!!!!

    Well isn’t that just so accommodating of you : ) This works well for me, since I am always going to be picking my son up from school at 3pm Ontario time (12 your time). Thanks for trying this!

    I find that on Fridays I never planned anything so that I could be at home or at work at the right time. I became sort of obsessive. I was successful this week at work in scoring a boy so I’m no longer a newbie (yah!) but I do think evenings would be better. Even on a weeknight, that way work doesn’t spill over into the weekend for you. ๐Ÿ™‚

    I think that is a wonderful idea! It’s very sweet of you to try to accomodate as many as possible so that international mommies aren’t up in the middle of the night! I love it! I do agree with the previous poster who was asking if we would know which dolls load when. That would be really, really nice, if it’s possible. Not that you can go wrong with any of them! They are all amazing!
