P.S. Whoo hoo! I just bought the truck with the paint peeling print! I fucking love that print, I remember seeing it in your flickr photostream.

Aw, thank you so much, Dee! I sent you a message on Etsy. I have the overwhelming urge to send you all kinds of free stuff, too. I think I'll look around my house for goodies to send!

Although I rarely comment, I am a regular reader who believes your future is bright. However, I must object to the overuse of future progressive tense (since you sell yourself as a proofreader).

"I'm very excited to announce the opening of my new etsy shop where I will be selling prints of my photographs."

Preferred: "I'm very excited to announce the opening of my new etsy shop where I will sell prints of my photographs."

Although common in spoken speech to "soften" one's intent, in writing, using "will+be+infinitive" is very rarely useful or elegant, when "will+verb" does the job quite well. If you look for this assault on style, you will find rampant overuse that creates an atmosphere of disjointed wordiness in longer texts.

"We will be closing at 6:00 p.m." (ugh)

"We will close at 6:00 p.m." (better!)

Hahaha....that was a very mysterious yet tactfully written post about grammar.

ps - how hard is it to run an etsy shop?
