My Experience Selling on Craigslist

      There was a lot of conversation in the comments of the last post on this, so I thought I would share with ya'll about it. Craigslist is not a bad thing. It is a tool that can be used for good and not so good. Just like the internet can be abused, some people take advantage of innocent people on Craigslist. I just want ya'll to have a heads up if you're thinking about selling on Craigslist. There are people (scammers or spammers) who will contact your contact number or email. They will leave a link that is highlighted in blue (that's the color on my phone and computer). They want you to click on that link. DON'T!!!! If you do, they can have access to your computer and accounts and wipe you out! Thank goodness I never clicked on those links before I knew! Someone my husband knows who knows about things like that explained it to him and then hubs told me. Now I'm telling you. It makes sense! Most of the people who contacted like that had an out of state phone number. Some were in this state but a different town. The last one was even from this area! So you never know! Just use caution!

      Overall, my experience with Craigslist was good. I sold the main thing I was hoping to. My goats! I also sold my older hens. They were gone in 24 hours! I will use Craigslist to sell chickens, but I'm not sure if I'll use it to sell anything else. No one was interested in the piano or pool. But now that the weather is warming up, I may advertise the pool again. I'll let you know how that goes.

      The temps have been in the mid seventies this week, so I've been outside a lot! There's been so many changes in the blooms on trees and the color of the grass. Everything is turning green again! It's so beautiful this time of year! And the fruit trees put off the most wonderful perfume! The only thing, the temps are supposed to drop below freezing Saturday night, and I hope it doesn't hurt the bloomed out fruit trees! For the last couple of years, we have experienced cooler Spring temps and later frosts. But by April 15 we should be able to set out garden plants like tomatoes and such. I can hardly wait! My seedlings are growing nicely. I hope the weather is turning warmer where you live. You could always move further South, in my opinion. Have a great day! Blessings from Bama!
