Joining the CBB Challenge has taught me some things already. First, that my blog is a tool that can be used for more than a way to let people know what is going on in my shop as a way to reach potential buyers. I really need to use it to reach out to other crafters and shop owners.
Second I have learned it is okay to ask for help and suggestions this way. Sometimes a short quick post can be effective. Also others appreciate hearing what people respond with.
This week has given me a few ideas on how I want to approach my blog and business this year. This is a year of transitions in my home financially. I am writing down specific obtainable goals for my business. I am looking at what tools I can use to reach them.
I have also decided to try a different approach immediately with my blog for this year. Last year I planned a weekly post basically telling what I was making or doing. Now I am going to add a weekly post geared toward people who are already crafters and owners.
What about you? What do you feel you have gained from the challenge so far?
