Three months young

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.

If you buy from amazon using one of my links I might make a percentage! I’m in the trial phase now.

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.
