In trying to understand blogging and where I fit in, I am torn between writing about how to start and run a successful Etsy shop, crocheting or both. They are really two completely different things. For me, well they are one and the same because my shop sells crocheted hats and scarves. But how many other people will be interested in such a specialised blog? I find myself reading blogs about both topics. Does that make me unique or are there others out there just like me? Would they like hearing from someone who can relate to both areas of interest?
As I write this, I am thinking about how would this work? Having a blog about my journey to having a successful Etsy shop that sells crocheted items; what does that content look like?
For example, in a previous post, I talked about the marketing book I was reading. Which I finished yet by the way, but I feel like a review of this book by someone who is selling on-line instead of brick and mortar may be helpful to others. I will say this of the book so far, It is informative. I work as a retail manager and see how what I have read will work with the customer in front of you. The hard part of selling on-line is getting the same connection in a written description that will cause the customer to hit the buy button. But I will give a full review as soon as I finish it. The thing is a read it in bed and if I’m tired it will put me right out. It’s a marketing book, of course, it will put you to sleep.
So, I think I will have content about both. The ups and downs of an on-line shop and my passion for creating crocheted items. Hopefully, you will like what you see and come back often to see what I am up to.
