ETSY 101: Using a Blog to Promote Your ETSY Shop

Blogging is a great way to network, and a wonderful way to promote your ETSY shop. I love blogging, most of my articles on my blog are dedicated to helping other ETSY sellers by providing information on how to improve their shops, how to promote, and simple tweaks they can do to their shop to help them be more successful. I highly recommend blogging to those who are interested in not only making their shop a little more visible on the world wide web but as a wonderful way to meet other artists who are just as enthused about handmade and vintage as you are!  I always included pictures of my latest and greatest designs on the article I blog about for that day!

Okay, so you want to blog, but are stuck on what to talk about? Here’s a list of possible places to start your blog as well as a handful of topics you can talk about on your blog!
