I’ve been a pattern publisher for three months now. I have learned so many new things. My head is ready to explode!
As of today I have over 90 patterns published on Ravelry. I have 28 listings on Etsy. I have 601 followers on Instagram. I have over 20 YouTube videos and 339 subscribers. I have 1681 members in my Facebook group (even with a typo in the name ?? only a few more days to go before I’m allowed to change my name again). And 229 likes on my Facebook page. It’s tough keeping everything sorted.
I don’t get as much crocheting done now that I spend so much time advertising and drawing up patterns and writing up patterns and teaching others how to read the patterns. I am trying to crochet a baby blanket right now. The pattern will be released in conjunction with a promotion I signed up for.
And, of course, I have to add one more thing to my list of new things: a blog!
Why would I do this? Well, it turns out I’m kind of chatty.
And I have seen many crochet blogs that make money on advertising and are thus able to offer their patterns for free. I’d love to do that too.
I hope things will be nicely organized here and easy to find. Professionalism is good too, but mostly I’m just going to be me. Because I need this outlet.
I’m a mom. A stay-at-home-mom. A mom who loves her 3 little children so much! And a mom who is struggling to stay sane through it all. So I am doing this for me.
