Welcome to justonemoreanimation’s blog
I started creating auction templates back in 2007. I had accidentally came
across a listing on eBay for an auction template. I was curious and began checking them out more. I was intrigued by them.
At the time I had very little computer skills and was just learning how to sell
some of my excess books and such on eBay. I had no kind of programs on my computer, which was my first computer. I knew nothing about graphics let alone
editing them. I was clueless to html and everything involved in creating an auction template.
But, I wanted to learn it. I began scouring the internet for any information I
could find on them. I even bought one just so I could see what exactly they were. I picked it apart and turned it inside-out. After many many months of reading, reading, reading, and more reading I decided to give it a try.
I created my very first template in eBay. I had no programs at the time and didn’t even know anything about the type of programs I would need. I started
with a new listing in eBay and used the description text area to create my first
template. I had only learned the very very raw basics of how to copy and paste and image code. I managed to take a few animated graphics and put them on a
page. That was, my first template created. I listed it on eBay and watched it every day. Checked how many views it was getting and if anyone was saving it.
Then, after a few weeks it sold…..
That was all it took.. If I could sell that then I can sell more. I was hooked.
I never stopped doing research on how to create the next one even better. I researched the web hours upon hours a week trying to learn how to write html.
Little by little I was creating a little better template layout. I still to this day wish I had somehow saved that very first template. I still remember what it
looked like and now I say in my mind, how in the hell did it sell?
Little by little I advanced my graphic and html skill. I eventually purchased my
first html editing program. Next came my first little graphic editing program.
That is when the possibilities became endless. Once I had a handful available in
my little eBay store I was finding less and less time to design new templates as
I was having to send out the template orders and I was beginning to get frequent
e-mails with many requests for special order templates. To this day I can not come close to count how many custom templates I have created. Every single one
has been unique, never 2 the same.
To this day I still find little time to just create and design new templates.
But I continue to squeeze time in there to at least create 1 new on a week. I
find such satisfaction and enjoyment out of seeing what I can create. I like to
cut, paste, crop, turn, twist, and just manipulate and image to make it into something totally different.
I have even helped a few other template designers get their little business
started. Although I helped them with the main just of how to create a template,
I can not and will not every give away my little secrets on why my templates are
“different” from all the others on eBay.
Daring to be different……
