Tuesday Scouting Hot Finds Newsletter March 31, 2015
Blog     31 Mar 2015 | 8:13 pm
I mentioned in another issue that I'm serving on a council committee to help commemorate the 100th anniversary of a council being formed in Wilmington, NC (now Cape Fear Council). My job on the committee has been to help with the history writing although Bob Walton has that covered. So what I've been doing is researching history in the town I live in and I've found out some pretty cool stuff. Bob had spotted a posting in one of the earliest issues of Boy's Life from a Scoutmaster in Lumberton, NC about a troop that was active there in 1911. That...

I'll hit a few highlights in today's Hot Finds and later today I'll be publishing an episode of my podcast to dive in deep.

It got so bad that I even closed my eBay store after letting it whittle down to less than 400 items. However, I...

SHF Radio Episode #73: eBay Spring Seller Update For Collectibles
Blog     27 Mar 2015 | 10:13 am
The collectibles category lives on eBay. Amazon? Forget about it! Try doing it yourself with your own website? Good luck! So when eBay updates their fees and policies twice a year buyers and especially sellers need to pay attention. In this episode of Scouting Hot Finds Radio I am going to break down the changes eBay is rolling out to the marketplace on May 1, 2015. For the most part it's a story of carrots and sticks. Some of the changers are meant to entice sellers to behave in a way that eBay sees as healthy for the site. Other...
