Finally, I've started listing my "stuff". I love to check in every now and then to see what is moving and what isn't. Most people hold off until the last minute and then start bidding, so the excitement will peak in a little over 3 days.
Aside from the bids and the running total, ebay gives you other stats. Like how many people have looked at a particular item, and how many are "watching" it. Watchers are usually quite keen.
This morning I noticed that this little number has 16 - sixteen! - watchers.
