I've had the idea for this in my head for a while and I'm finally ready to make it real. I'm so excited to announce a brand new blog column! For those of you who don't know my background, I started selling my handmade greeting cards and housewares on Etsy in January of 2008. At the time I had no plans of turning that venture into a job, it was just a fun side project to help fund my craft supply shopping. Seven years later and my handmade business, this blog, and freelance gigs make up my career. I've learned so much along the way and have had the pleasure to meet so many inspiring people who are paving their own path and making careers from their creative pursuits. So I introduce my new column, Small Biz. It will have two parts:
Small Biz Tips
After starting my business from scratch 7 years ago (and this blog 4 years ago) I've learned quite a bit and have a few tips and tricks for how I do things. I really want to share those things with you! I'll also be lining up guest posts from other makers, bloggers, and creative business people so they can share their knowledge as well. You won't want to miss this column if you're looking to start, develop, and improve your own small business!
Small Biz Spotlight
I'll be featuring small business owners, sharing their craft, and a little behind the scenes looks at their work spaces. There's so much great stuff being made by really cool people right now. I want to share some of that great stuff and introduce you to the cool people making it!
Come back next week for my first post of the series.
