Self-Sabotage

Have you ever found yourselves NOT doing what you know you should be doing to march forward on your path to success?

I have the habit of doing that and I am working really hard to just put on my big girl panties and get over it. Easier said that done, but I figured that if I just take those baby-steps, I can do it.

That said, be prepared for a WHOLE slew of things for this blog. I fully intend on making this place interesting and interactive for you to enjoy.

Here are some of the things I am hoping to incorporate or continue:
1- Wonder Wednesday: I'll probably end up renaming this so that it's more descriptive of the whole Giveaway and Interview aspect of the piece. I'll also probably revamp the way I've been doing it a bit so that it's more interesting for you guys. Any name suggestions are welcome, but I think I'll be keeping it on Wednesday.

2- Poster Child Sunday: I'll be renaming this to Super 16 Sunday because, let's face it, the 16 shop items I will feature are super! I'll also be taking a page from Tim Adam's book and making sure that I not only post all 16 items on my twitter, but on my Facebook as I have been doing AND in the Etsy forums which I have not! I'll also streamline this a little and only link to the items in the Poster Sketch. It makes for less linkable text and should be less confusing! I will also probably be able to arrange the links 4 across this way...so less scrolling!

3- Treasuries I made or am in: I will definitely be continuing to show case some of the beautiful treasuries I'm in and the treasuries I am honored to make!

4- New products: I'll definitely still be listing products that I have just listed in my shop.

New things!
5- Etsy-Mini: This is a quick and easy way to showcase some of the EtsySecrets artisans I have been getting to know. I thought it was a GREAT idea when I read about it in the EtsySecrets forums! I may alternate this with one for my EtsyQ team members seeing as they deserve equal showcasing!

6- Moi-meme: A weekly section about myself and the things that are happening around me. This will be separate from my treasuries and Product listings. So far, this blog has been mostly about my shop and my items and so it offers very little about me. I want to get to know you all better and I want you guys to also know the person you are reading about and purchasing from. I will therefore be posting some glimpses into my life and show you guys things that I like and that inspire me. This could be anything. Tutorials on packaging something for gift-giving, crafts I enjoyed making, recipes I loved eating, my cats, my work space, artwork that I am working on, tips I have discovered from who knows where, things that made me laugh, thoughts for that particular day. I definitely want to do this once a week, but I think I will keep when random. I suppose it depends on me managing my time better!

So basically, I have a LOT of catching up to do and so don't be alarmed if you see post after post coming from this blog. I promise it's only temporary and I haven't gone Postal!

Have a FABULOUS day!
