In the beginning…

Today marks the beginning of yet another web blog. This one will be all about arts and crafts.

Hopefully, my new blog named Blog About Crafts will offer something people find interesting.

Great Craft Websites

I plan to discuss some of the more outstanding artisans and their websites that have submitted to my other website Crafty Tips Arts & Crafts Directory. Since Blog About Crafts will be the official blog of Crafty Tips, I plan to announce new categories, outstanding submissions and other news about Crafty Tips here – Crafty Tips News.

On Blog About Crafts, I hope to showcase interesting websites, blogs and online shops. My goal is to share my marketing and writing skills and my love of crafting. Along the way, I hope to make some new friends and learn more about doing business on the Internet. Be sure to check out Arts and Crafts Online to find my latest posts.

Website Construction

As there are several craft-related forums that I participate in where new website owners ask for critiques, I plan on discussing some of the suggestions and comments that arise from these threads. As my own sites grow and I experiment with search engine optimization and web marketing, you will be able to find those conversations filed under Crafting and the Web.

Selling Crafts Online & Off

Additionally, the Blog About Crafts will discuss building, promoting and optimizing websites where artisans plan to sell their finished items, books, and supplies. I’ll also talk about selling items in person and hopefully initiate some interesting conversations on Selling Arts and Crafts.

Please Join Me

So, while I will mainly be discussing the business side of crafting, I hope to have some fun as well through sharing my own creations and seeing all of the great things other folks are making. I hope you will join me on this adventure.

One Response to In the beginning…

Gosh, I can’t believe that it’s been 5 years since I wrote this post. Blog About Crafts has changed hosts, changed software and had more makeovers than any of my sites.

Two posts made the front page of Digg amongst more than a little controversy. I was hacked. Down for several months and still trying to recover from losing many of my backlinks. My dedication to continually posting here has wavered a number of times yet I keep returning here as if seeking the comfort of an old friend.

As the entire site gets yet another software upgrade and redesign, I hope to rejuvenate some of the better old posts and allow others to fade into the ether. I hope to spur more interest and attract more new friends to share their ideas and comments.
