After several days of people reading my post about bringing back the trumpet skirt and going to the Dancestore.com Facebook page and clicking “Like” on my post to indicate that YES I WANT DANCESTORE.COM TO MAKE AND SELL THE TRUMPET SKIRT AGAIN, we’ve reached 72 likes and a number of comments. I would consider this to be a pretty significant outpouring of support, but Dancestore.com remains skeptical:
Me: “So, DanceStore.com, what is the magic number? How many Likes do I need to get before you will bring back the trumpet skirt? ;)”
Dancestore.com: “I can’t guarantee anything, but 60 likes isn’t bad. Thanks everyone for your posts. Keep them coming.”
Isn’t bad? ISN’T BAD??? Ladies, we are clearly going to have to get some significant number of likes on this post before Dancestore.com will commit to the skirt. Short of starting a Kickstarter campaign to fund the endeavor for Dancestore.com ourselves, I am hoping we can get enough likes to convince them that we mean business – and by business, I mean business for them! They will not indicate how many “Likes” will make a difference, but I’m guessing if we had enough “Likes” to validate my statement about hundreds of dancers needing and wanting this skirt that it could make a difference. Can we get 100 Likes? 200? Spread the word, I’m determined that petitioning them can make a difference and we will bring back the trumpet skirt from extinction!
Since there has been some confusion about where to post, thanks to Facebook’s horrible new Timeline, here’s the process:
1) Go to Dancestore.com’s Facebook page at http://www.facebook.com/ArisAllen
2) Look on the right hand side of the Timeline – you should see a box that says “Recent Posts by Others on DanceStore.com.”
3) You can find my post two ways, first by clicking “See All” at the top right of the “Recent Posts by Others on DanceStore.com” box and scroll down to find Laura Windley’s post linking to A Letter to Dancestore.com/Ode to a Trumpet Skirt
find the Laura Windley post in the “Recent Posts by Others on DanceStore.com” box (which will only display the link https://lindyshopper.com/2012/04/05/a-letter-to-dancestoreode-to-a-trumpet-skirt/) and click on that abbreviated post to see all the comments and the “Like” button.
4) Click “Like” on this post. Leave a comment if you wish!
For those of you who have already posted or “Liked” the comment, thanks for all your support! I know many of you feel the same way I do about these skirts – a great skirt that is great for what we do at a great price!
