From a fellow peer in the publishing industry (Ave Maria Press), I wanted to commend you on your insightful blog. It's one of my favorites and a "must read" in my feed reader.

I'd also like to say I really appreciated your post about the economic implications of Craigslist. I am an Indiana resident myself (unfortunately) and I echo your statement about Craigslist unpopularity in the area. It's a widely untapped resource.

Kudos and keep up the great blogging.

Craigslist is a pretty big thing up here in the Twin Cities. We were able to move a lot of old furniture and electronics pretty easily. The only issue we found was no-shows; over half the people who emailed and said they'd come to look never showed up. Since we ended up selling everything, I suppose that's not a big deal, but I was somewhat surprised at the number of no-shows.

I recently hired a guy through a craigslist ad. We posted in several places, but the quality of responses through craigslist was much higher.

Dude, a horse?

Joe Wikert

Jillian, thanks for the kind words.

Mike, glad to hear you've landed in a more craigslist-aware location.

Lori, yeah, I'll bet you never pictured me with a horse. Actually, I'm not around it that much, but my wife and youngest daughter are. Now that I own a pickup truck though I find myself more open to country music and mullets...

Happily, usage of Craigslist has picked up a lot in the past few years here in the Tucson area. Along with freecycle (which was actually started here in the Old Pueblo). A favorite site of mine from my Bay Area days,, has been slow to gain traction here, but I highly recommend it to anyone looking to review or find reviews of local services, establishments, activites, etc.

Hey, what is so bad about country music? Hmmmmmmm?

Have you never heard of Kenny Chesny's "She Thinks My Tractor's Sexy?"

Joe Wikert

Ah, my good friend (and older sister) Sharon... Nope, I've never heard that song but I'm afraid that's the only stuff the radio in that new/old truck plays.

Horse Classifieds

Yeah, Craigslist experiences for me have overall been greater than any other online shopping deal. Except for Amazon.
