Ok, so I’ve decided to start a new career path (hopefully a successful one), and I’ve dove in head first into the world of online selling. For the past 10 years I have been playing around with different creations, crafts, and I have decided that I am now ‘good enough’ that others might enjoy my creations too.
Well! Have I ever gotten an awakening! I’ve always been quite content to sit in the back, keep my mouth shut and just soak in whatever was going on around me; but here, in this online marketplace, I’ve discovered that the one with the loudest mouth (so to speak) is the one that gets all the attention. From what others say, online social networks are the way to go in todays world. Even Costco featured an article outlining the many online social networks, and how it worked for one of their members.
Competition here is tough. I have a few quilts for sale (www.kandkkrafts.etsy.com), so I went to the search bar at Etsy, typed in quilts, and came up with over 3000 pages! Needless to say I did not find my quilts as there is not enough time in the day for me to search through 3000 pages. Personally, I find myself getting bored after about 3 pages, tops!
So here I am, writing my first blog, wondering where it will end up, who will read it, and where we’ll go from here.
That’s it for now, signing off from sunny California (hahaha)
