eBay Blogging on Your My World Page

By Marsha Collier

If blogging is the key to the new Web, your My World page is the hub of your eBay user interaction. Your About Me page is there for customers; the My World page is mostly used by the eBay community. People like to know about other people, and the My World page shows your world, your way.

To get to your My World page, just click your user ID on your My eBay page (or any page for that matter); you’ll arrive at your own, ready-to-fill-out My World page.

Once you get there, you see a page ready to edit. Here’s the lowdown:

  • Edit image: By clicking here, you’ll come to a page that allows you to automatically upload a picture from your computer or use one of the handy (but unexciting) eBay-supplied avatars (faux pictures) to appear on your My World page.

  • Items for sale: Choose which and how many of the items you have for sale to show on your page.

  • Add content: Add things about your eBay life that you’d like everyone to see. Follow this link and you can add “modules” that hold these items:

    • Neighborhoods: Once you get going on eBay, you might just want to join a neighborhood, which is a special interest group. Some examples of groups are Coffee Lovers, Photography, and Star Trek.

    • Favorites: Select whether you’d like the page to pick up your favorite searches, sellers, and stores, and show them here.

    • Blog: Communicate regularly with the eBay community.

    • Bio: This link takes you to a form where you can write a quick and simple bio.

    • Reviews and guides: If you’ve written reviews of items on the site, or written a guide on how to do something (anything), you can have these reviews appear on your My World page.
