Often I get an idea for my site I Antique Online.com in what I call a flash of creativity. As far as I know there is no conscious thought about a particular idea when I am in the midst of a sudden burst of creative energy.
Case in point is my recent flip decision to add yet another group forum to I Antique Online.com called "Craigslist Connection". What I was thinking was that it would be great to have the power of over 9000 members browsing the antique and collectibles section of Craigslist to share great finds with other members of IAO.
So I started the group and with hours the buzz throughout the site was amazing. The group instructions were that a member could post something they spotted on any of the many Craigslists copying and pasting the title, date and LINK.

So the group was up and running and members added their own twist to the group as well. Some of the members began showing us pictures of "bargains" they actually bought on Craigslist. So that now the group is a place to share items that may be of interest to a social network of antique and collectibles buyers and sellers as well as a place to drool over missed opportunities.
