Craft Blogging Tips and Business Information
Hi friends! If you are on this page then I assume you are probably either a craft blogger (or want to be!) or a craft business person (maybe you want to or have already opened a shop selling either craft supplies or your handcrafted items). I hope that the few articles about craft blogging tips and business I’m sharing here are helpful to you. Let me know if you have any particular questions that I may be able to answer. I am not an expert by any means, but I am always ready to offer what experience I have.
So what is my experience actually? I have been selling my quilled jewelry online since 2010. I started on forums, then a blog, and soon on Etsy. I started a quilling blog to showcase my handmade quilled products. I expanded from Etsy to sell on a couple other online marketplaces as well, but the biggest has always been Etsy. Now it is split between Etsy and Zibbet. In 2012 I started selling paper quilling supplies and I opened a separate free standing online store for that. It was a lot of work and I learned a lot! In 2013 I opened a new quilling blog, self hosted this time, where I could share things like tutorials. It has blossomed and grown and I love it so much! I have read oodles of information about blogging, craft blogging, business blogging, advertising on blogs, and SO much more. I have implemented many of the things I have read, while others are still on my to-do list.
The posts I share here are based on questions that I get from readers. I hope that they help, and if you have any questions I’ll be happy to answer them via e-mail or in a new post!
