Tempus Fugit when you’re having fun!
Fun writing, that is!
This blog has grown little by little since launching it in January, I’ve gone off on several tangents and there isn’t really a particular niche other than Show And Tell about stuff I’ve been making, but it’s still fun!
I’m working on my own self hosted website and have another little free blog almost ready to go, all I need is a few actual posts!
As of writing (9 Sept) I have 2965 views in total.
I haven’t blogged every day or even logged onto WordPress everyday so it could be higher if I pushed, but that’s OK. I think I’ll hit over 3000 this week.
In fact I’m certain of it. How? Because any post with stats in does well…lol! And if that sounded tacky, well, it’s understandable. People want to see where other people are so they can judge their own level of success…or just be plain nosy. It’s human nature!
So, what else has happened as a result of writing this blog?
I joined and write on Medium and any post over there about writing or Medium itself does well. How meta to write about writing because people like to read about writing and then write about what they’ve read…about writing!
Did you know I’ve made money from this tiny WordPress blog? Not much, not even enough for a cup of tea but it goes to show it IS possible if you have the inclination and the know-how.
I’ve added a few affiliate links here and there and why not if I’m linking to places anyway?!
I’ve opened several print on demand stores, the one I’ve talked about the most is my RedBubble store but I’ve started to upload to Society 6 and Spoonflower this week too after opening accounts and putting them to the side.
Society 6 is a pain to upload to as there are so many different HUGE file sizes needed and Spoonflower is awkward getting the right ratios for patterns…if I upload a pattern will it turn out gigantic or minuscule? I can’t figure it out yet!
The Substack e-mail newsletter has been created but honestly put aside for a fortnight as I wasn’t well. That’s going to start up properly soon.
I’ve joined Pinterest and Twitter (only just yesterday for the latter) and Instagram, but I don’t think I want to focus on that at the moment. Pinterest has 1.9K views a month, up from 23 at the start of August. That’s progress!
And uploaded a few notebooks to Amazon KDP, but that needs a LOT of work.
I’ve opened but not yet launched an Etsy shop. Still working on things. And I’m writing a book too.
All from one little blog. Things can snowball if you let them!
One more Quarter to go before the year is out. Let’s see what I mange to do before then!
