Have a(n Etsy) heart

I noticed I only had one new heart added all week and have to wonder, is this because I set my hearts to private (meaning, when I heart someone now, they see me as a "secret admirer") last week? I think one of the ways people find your shop, is when you heart them and they check you out. Note, many people heart shops for different reasons, including "heart me and I'll heart you" sort of trades, which I don't do. I heart only people I want to heart (for different reasons).

Gladiola Flutterbutt's mobile cord
Gladiola has two hearts (on her mobile cord)

My guess is - yes. When I will set my hearts public again, mine will start rising too. Do you agree?

…….I’m afraid you are right – there are many “faked hearts” around….
I feel really great when I get these question marks of the secret admires – then I know it’s for real!

i follow hearts to check people out
i only heart the work if i really like it, or want to find the shop again, or remember to do it ... i have some secret admirers, and i get a bit sad i cant see who it is !

I don't really know...did not pay much attention to hearts actually... I heart if i like the work or if i want to find the shop back. I don't like the private hearts at all i would like to pay attention back to the ones who hearted me - and would want other to know i like their work - if you truly like somthing why hide it??

Some people hide their hearts cause they mark competitors, I think.

Anyway - I made my hearts public again, and hop - 4 new hearts in 12 hours..
