I have been fretting over my etsy shop as of late. I have been wracking my brain trying to come up with other ways to draw attention to it and create a good collection of people who actually have a need for baby clothes & other things. I recognize that the readers eyes I've caught on this blog aren't necessarily the baby bearing ones, so I've started another blog solely for Little Dipper. For those of you who have any desire to follow the Little Dipper blog, please do! And if you wouldn't mind helping me spread the word, that would be really lovely. I have been so excited about my shop and am hoping that it will help direct me to bigger and better things in my future (perhaps a non-baby shop). However, it's been pretty slow lately and I have been feeling a little discouraged about it. I have sent out a few emails to other big time bloggers that have seemingly gone unnoticed, or perhaps have gotten lost in the hundreds of other emails those ladies probably get daily. I was hoping that since I got so lucky with Joanna Goddard over at A Cup of Jo, that perhaps someone else might fancy my shop just as much and lend me a helping hand, too. As of yet, that hasn't quite panned out. So, I am hoping the blog will help a bit. If anybody has any self-promotion tips or ideas, please do pass them along! I need all of the advice I can get!
Now, a note about this little ol' blog of mine. Marmunia started when I left my Livejournal (visit only if you must - so many embarrassing & transitional years spent there!) and needed a place that was just for me, where I could collect in one place all of the things I enjoy. I never really expected or thought that anybody would pay attention, but I am glad that some people seem to. My following may be small, but I am happy for each of you nonetheless. I have always enjoyed blogging a lot. It is very fun for me, and there is also something therapeutic about sending my own little thoughts and wishes out into the word wide web. The only thing that I am beginning to miss from Livejournal days are the readers who so faithfully left their comments. Let it be said that I am not wagging a finger at you, dear readers. I myself am not good at commenting on the blogs that I read religiously, either. However, I am trying to be better about that recently. All I'm saying is, that it was really nice then to hear about the thoughts and feelings that my silly little postings inspired in other people. I imagine it would be just as nice, if not nicer now. So I suppose I am encouraging each of you that stop by here to introduce yourselves and maybe pipe up every once in a while!
Anyhow, I hope to hear from each of you sooner or later. And again, please do follow me over at Little Dipper if you feel so inclined!
