I am Amy Kalinchuk, from Denver, Colorado. I am an author, publisher, crafter, and public school teacher.
I have been blogging since 2004, but have restructured my blog to have a tighter focus within the past year or so. Now, it’s focused on craft business topics.
Blogging, for me, was a fun novelty as a writer. The potential to have so many readers looking at my words, on the Internet, forever, was appealing to me. I figured out that not that many readers were reading it, because it was a personal blog and had no focus, which is why I changed it. Now, I’m blogging as a platform to help others learn about owning and running a small business, and to help others get a some publicity.
That’s hard to say. There are so many. Probably this one.
My blog appeals primarily to women, ages 25-60, who are interested in learning about crafts and business.
The weird, buggy formatting of Blogger is annoying me lately. I have an appointment with my web guy who is going to help me move the blog to WordPress, during the last week of March.
Engaging in conversations about topics that I love is my favorite aspect of blogging. I love learning from the experience of others.
Oh, my. So many! Erica.biz, thisissethsblog, Mod Podge Rocks, Handmadeology, Baked Bree, Thursday Night Smackdown…the list continues. Somewhere.
If I gain enough followers each month, I hope to open the blog up to advertising.
I have two websites: one for the crafty, and one for the publishing. www.soapcrone.com and www.crafte-revolution.com
Leave comments! If you read something you like, and have something to say, leave that blogger a comment! It’s frustrating to think that folks are reading, but we don’t know if folks got anything out of it. Let us know.
