Okay, I have finally done it...

and here it is! One of my business goals for 2008 was to start a blog. I am not too sure what to do with it or what to blog about, but I guess I will wing it for now. I have a few ideas, so I guess that is what I will be working on today or tomorrow. I have seen interviews and features of Etsy sellers on blogs, so I may consider that when I feel like there will be people reading it. I may also offer links and banners on the blog if I can figure out how to do it and if I can. I may feature one item from my shop a day, post links to advertising sources and whatever else I can think of. I think I will leave personal and health issues to myspace. Ok, off to play more.
