I started blogging with hopes to increase traffic to my shop but then something happened. I got laid off from my full time job and all I had was my shop(s) and my blog (and my family of course). I was blown away with the fact that while blogging you can meet people who know exactly what you are talking about and care about similar things. The amount of help I got by circulating in the blogosphere was tremendous. Now I catch myself thinking about my blog more that my shop. Oops.
I came upon a blog one day, not even knowing what a blog was, called “crap I’ve made” and it struck a chord! I thought hey, there are other people out there like me that make random things just because… so I wanted to share my “crap I’ve made” and that is how I started my blog. I like it because I don’t have to stick with what is in my shop, I can show all my cre8tive sides And pretty much no one in my household really cares all that much about all the crap I make Now I have my own people to share it with.
I don’t think I truly qualify because although I’m passionate about handmade and buy lots of it, I don’t make stuff myself – my blog IS the stuff I make. And why do I do it? ‘Cause it makes me happy. Very Happy!
