Every fall, I start thinking about the new year and the changes I want to make to my business. Over the past year or so, as my internet presence has grown, I am finding myself working really long hours. In most areas of my business, I generate at least some income for the time I spend on it....most areas except blogging.
I have never liked ads and over-excessive self promotion in the blogs I follow. I like the direction my blog is going and want to continue to improve it. But I have been thinking about simple ways I can create at least a little income to help justify all the hours I put in to it. I am hoping my readers can help me do this.
Since I am already a big fan of Craftsy and am starting to sell some of my patterns there, I have decided to become an affiliate. What this means is if you are planning to make a purchase of any of their great classes or products, and you use one of the links on my site, I receive a small commission from the sale.
Right now, I am only planning on posting a button or two on my sidebar and have added an Affiliates page with links and additional information. I really want my blog to continue to be about me sharing my love of quilting.
If I can start generating at least a little income from my blog, I can start lessening the hours I spend generating income from other areas of my business and share more here...
More tutorials, more tips, more designs!
Here is Craftsy's current promotion. I hope there is something there you have on your wishlist and make a purchase!
And if you have a blog or website and want to look into becoming an affiliate yourself, just follow this link.
I really do appreciate the support I get from my readers and look forward to the next year. In the next few months, I will be giving each of you the opportunity to help formulate my plans for next year by sharing what you want to see on my blog. Thanks again!
