My new blog class. Blogging Your Way

Yikes I've already missed the deadline! I was suppose to blog between the 5th and 8th about my new class Blogging Your Way with Holly Becker from decor8, a blog I have followed for awhile now.
Weekends are tough for me. Saturday is my Friday so Sundays I usually teach a class or catch up on chilling out. And Monday was my first Wedding Anniversary. I'm really piling on the excuses aren't I? Ok enough of that.
I've had this blog for a few years and read help books here and there. I know a little about computers but not a lot; hardly anything with html and all of that stuff. . I've tried different things on how to increase readers but nothing seems to really work. Is it my writing? My posts? I admit I have not fully let it all out.
Kind of uncomfortable doing that, or rather worried. Or what are my goals. 

A few weeks ago a drunk friend made a suggestion. Now this friend does not have a blog or any other computer internet type experience however she is the public so her comment hit hard. She said my blog looked "a little homemade" ouchie, I did take offense but I am glad she was truthful. 

Decor8 is a blog I check in with and I saw this class the next day. Fate? And not sold out! Yay!

Here I am, I made my latte for the morning and will be doing some writing and have a couple etsy purchases to mail out.  Away we go!

Latte in my favorite Jonathan Adler mug

Toiletry bags seem to be a big seller for me on etsy


  1. It is not easy to keep up with the pace at klass. I have been busy myself working full time. I love it though and I will have some more time in the next two weeks. I read somebody's comment that you don't have to use everything that you learn at once. You can change things in the next couple of months at your own pace. Have fun! Bye.

  2. Hi from BYW - love your etsy show and your photos from renegade london - hope you are enjoying class as much as I am!

  3. Thanks so much for the encouraging comments!

  4. Hi fellow BYW Student! I have 3 kids at home so I found it challenging to do the 3 posts too. But no worries! Work at your own pace and learn as you go. Best thing to do is look at blogs that you like and ask your self why. Is it the layout? The fonts? The colors or photos that draw you in? I have changed my blog design at least twice. Took A LOT of learning and I am STILL learning. Good luck! And don't forget we have the BYW forums - you can get lots of advice from fellow students there! =)

  5. So great to be in class with other Etsians!!
    Wishing you all the best,
    Mary (from BYW Bootcamp)
