As most of you know, I'm a columnist for the new and flourishing blog Handmadenews.org in the Inspiration Department. The entire site is made up of 12 departments, and there are currently over 50 editors and columnists providing fresh handmade content on a daily basis. And because we have a large pool of writers, you aren't getting just one perspective on any one subject. You're essentially getting a tapestry of handmade knowledge and experience woven into one place for you!
If you're looking for business and/or marketing tips, there are articles on pricing, bookkeeping services, jump starting your marketing plan, how to write a press release, how to approach consignment shop owners, and many, many more.
If you'd rather stop racking your brain about keywords and tags and listing, there's plenty of light-hearted fare in our Just For Fun section, including the Top 10 Signs You Have Craft ADD. And if you're just sick of reading altogether, try out some of the puzzles I've made in our department! Here's this week's crossword and word find. New crosswords come out each Sunday and new word finds each Wednesday.
Personally, I've found a ton of fascinating articles in Green Wise, including this one and this one. I'm not even going to name them. Just click them and you'll see why that's one of my favorite sections. You can get some fantastic stump-your-friends trivia!!
So, here's the contest:
One of my fellow columnists, Daniella Cortez, is sponsoring a Handmadenews.org scavenger hunt contest on her blog. See this post for details! There's a great selection of prizes to win, including a pendant from my shop if you so choose! So check out Daniella's blog and handmadenews.org and win some loot in the process. You'll have fun; I promise!!
Take care, Lori
