Guest Blogging!

In blog, etsy on September 29, 2008 at 3:25 pm

As you might know, my new goal for this blog is to Guest Blog two times per month. I contacted a couple of my favorite blogs in order to see if they’d have room for an entry from me and the first one is up this morning!

Go on over to Twiddlestix blog and see what I had to say about getting your Etsy shop ready for the Christmas season! Remember to leave comments!

I have a couple more guest blog entries to work on today, I’ll be busy busy!



By the way, I received my business cards a while ago and just haven’t been able to take a good picture of them (stupid camera!). Here’s what they look like though, and I’m pretty pleased with them!

This past week’s of goal-meeting wasn’t that great. Like most of you know, my goal is to make 350 views per week (that’s 50 views per day). Last week, I made 276 views…not great…

I’ve always noticed that nearer to the end of the week, the KJ Blog doesn’t receive as many views and this was the case last week. I think it’s because people start realizing the weekend is coming and they need to get work done. The beginning of the week had been great, steady views which is always encouraging to see.

Seems like I need to find just one more site to promote my blog at.

I’ve also decided to make more goals for myself. But just one for so I don’t get overwhelmed:

  1. 2 Guest Blog posts a month. So if you’re looking for a guest blogger, let me know!

There’ll be more goals coming up, like I said on my other blog…I’ve made a goal to make a goal (:

Blogging Techniques 3

This blogging techniques entry is from Damien, from Post Cards from the Funny Farm, a mentor of mine in the blogging department. Damien was the blogger that encouraged me to look into getting my own domain and has mentored me through that process.

Here’s the question I sent Damien: How did you start blogging and what promotions etc. have you done to get to where you are now?

A: My first “touch” of a blog was through Blogger (also referred to as “blogspot” and now owned by Google).  I started a blog but had no idea what all the bells and whistles around me did.  I knew how to write though so I kept an online diary sending the link to family after I saw movies, went to events etc.  I started doing that in 1997.  After that I started a FORUM, which is kind of like a blog.  I used to chat on a local forum and the moderators got really Draconian so I decided to start my own (sorry for the long boring answer, I am almost finished).  In the time I was on the forum I learned a ton of html a little at a time: ie; How to make a signature photo appear etc.  This would later prove very important for me in blogging.

The beginning of blogging for me was in December of 2006 when I started Postcards from the Funny Farm.  I could say a lot more that would probably help people starting but maybe you could interview me sometime 😉   The promotions I have done to become an established and lucrative blogger are legion, but if I had to whittle it down to the I feel would most help a beginning blogger, I would say these (if you’re serious):

Okay, better stop now — doing all that will take you weeks.  Come over to my online diary if you have any more questions.


Thanks Damien!

I hope everyone got something out of this Blogging Techniques series! Thanks to all the bloggers that gave their opinion and advice!

I’ve been trying all day to write an entry, opening a New Post page and closing it again! I have a free moment here at work, so I open it…then I get busy, have to run, someone calls for help, and I have to close it again!

Tonight we’re having guests for dinner (spaghetti!) so I won’t have time to write an entry…but I’ll make it double good for tomorrow! I’ll try to rouse up some drama tonight so I have something spectacular to write about! (:

Thanks to everyone that has entered in the contest so far! There’s a lot of entries, I’m SO EXCITED! And still three more days to go!
