What to do when you think your handmade business is struggling
  1. I am just starting out in my business and I am learning computer actions as I need them, so I’m basically computer- illiterate. I love learning about blogs and am very interested in doing this, but I don’t understand WHERE to find these blogs. How do I go about finding someone to pitch to?

      Hi Susan! Thank you for stopping by! It’s great to hear that you’ve been teaching yourself how to use the computer. Everyone’s gotta start somewhere, right?

      A good place to start looking for blogs is by doing a search on Google.com

      Depending on your market or niche, you can search for things like:
      “fashion blogger” or “food blogger”. You can get more specific if you find the results are too all over the place.

      For example, because my jewelry is so food centric, I want to pitch only to fashion bloggers who are also foodies. So I search in Google “fashion bloggers foodie” and that gives me better results!

      Good luck and keep me updated with your progress Susan!

    If I am not too late, how does my site look.
    I have not make it offical yet…I just completed it before to see how it looks before purchasing the professional domain…

    • Mei says:

      Hey Sarla!

      Nice work on your website. I would make it cleaner so would remove some of the widgets and overall try to keep the number of different colors for fonts and buttons to a minimum of two or three for a cohesive and consistent look and feel for your brand. Definitely also remove the autoplaying video (or just turn off the autoplay feature). No one likes those!

      Good job!

    Hi Mei,
    I’ve made up a list of people and magazines to pitch to and I was just looking for a little added advice about what to put into my email template. Here is my website: https://nettlesome.life

    I do hope I am ready!
