This is the subject I am most passionate about. Blogs - Short for WebLog are everywhere. Unless you’ve lived in a cave for the last 20 years you’ll all have come across blogs of one kind or another.
I started my first blog in 2006 and now have about 30!
Lately, blogs seem to be talked about everywhere.
There’s Fashion bloggers, Make-up blogger, Cookery Bloggers, Book bloggers, Travel bloggers…. In fact there’s a blog for everything under the sun and if you think that you don’t have a blog already, you’d be mistaken. Twitter, Instagram and even Facebook are forms of blogs.
Every industry is using blogs! From major retailers to micro businesses, Newspapers to the emergency services, large corporate businesses to hobbyists… and there’s a very good reason for this!

What do I blog about?
Anything and everything your perfect clients would like to hear.
Use it as your on-line diary
About your products.
About your services.
The trials and tribulations of running your own business.
What started you working for yourself.
Where it has or is taking you
Where you will be available for people to see/buy your work… Craft Fairs, Markets etc.
Your experience of making your latest piece of work.
Where you have just been on holiday….. yes EVEN THIS!
The difficulties of being a working mum.
A blog differs from a website in that websites are pretty static and lack personality.
The point of a blog is for people to get to know YOU, the person behind the making.
What makes you tick.
What floats your boat,
What interests, hobbies, values do you have?
If you write the write stuff, the customers that connect with you and really ‘get you’ will follow you and come back for more.
I could go on…. However I’m trying to limit the number of words in the posts so I don’t overwhelm you J
