{Goals – Week 2}

It’s the second week since I made my goal of reaching 50 views here per day. The first week was good, I reached 453 views in one week…at 50 views per day, I should have 350 views per week so I exceeded my goal. This week was still as good, 456 views all together. It was the daily view count that disappointed me. It was up and down like a crazy roller-coaster, one day at 29 views, the next at 220 (that took some link love from other bloggers! Thanks guys!). It never stayed even relatively consistent which was slightly dissapointing, even though my promotion of the site didn’t change. I think part of the problem was that the Selling on Etsy Series finished up and it, I think, attracted a ton more readers. Obviously, I’m going to have to start a new series again! Which isn’t a bad thing, I enjoyed it and it gave me a secure direction here.

If you have any suggestions for a series with a “Creativity” theme, let me know! I have a few ideas up my sleeve, but I’d always like to know what the readers thoughts are!

Also, I’ve been looking into the local Farmers Market and found that it’s super cheap to attend as a seller! I’m SO excited!! It costs $20.00 for a (yearly?) membership and $10.00 every time you attend. You can also rent a table for $5.00. So affordable!! I’m making it top priority to attend this weeks Market and hopefully I’ll make a few sales! I’ve almost reached my goal for the Button Maker so hopefully just a couple Markets will bring me to where I need to be!

So here’s my goals this week:

  • 50 blog views per day
  • Start a new series
  • Attend the Farmers Market
  • Oh, and post the new Big Bags in the Etsy store

And a new week begins…

Shelly Tucker is a crazy lady…but a crazy lady I’m lovin’ even more! She blogs over at “This Eclectic Life” and always has challenging entries…she’s a blogger to look up to.

I just clicked onto her blog to see what was new and was blown away by what I saw. Talk about CRAZY! Shelly has taken up a challenge and is in turn challenging all us readers and bloggers to help her out. She’s making a goal to send 140 kids to camp this year. That’s $21,000.00!!! These kids will be attending Camp Sanguinity, a camp for kids with cancer.

If you feel the urge, that small little voice, to help Shelly and these kids out, check out her blog entry for more details.

Good luck Shelly!! I’m really rootin’ for ya!!
