UK Handmade Thursday Week 5
Week 5 and my last week. I would like to thank the few that have joined in and such a shame that there could not be more, odd as so many blogs published each week and as a business never under estimate the power of blogging. Yes you do have to put some effort in not only to post something of interest that is craft related, link back to the host blog, visit and comment on other participating blogs, the latter could be the stumbling block with 'I don't have the time' etc. etc.
My question is do you not have the time to promote your business? think about it if you join the link party, okay I know only a few but your blog has the potential to reach all the facebook, twitter and blogging followers of not only the host blog in my case in excess of 1000 people but also the others joining in. These if pitched right and not hard sell are all potential customers so more a case if a genuine business can you afford not to join in.
On that note this is my final week of hosting the linky party, I have enjoyed doing it but feel that I have reached the end of the road. Hope someone else will step into my shoes.
This post is although not exactly about craft it is about the business of craft and think groups are always stronger than an individual, as a team we can all achieve greatness and help each other out, as a lone person you can sink without a trace. The bloggers who have joined in are wonderful crafters all with a tale to tell and products to admire:
Ally - Lovingly Handmade
Emma Louise - Em*Louise
Tazim - Terracotta Blue
Jill - Christmas Pie Crafts
Anna - Silver Paw
