First off, Happy 2010, again!
I'm not usually into the whole "New Year's Resolution" thing. And, frankly, I'm still not. But, I have made a couple of goals for myself during 2010 regarding my Jewelry Business!
~~I have this blog~~ It's usually very much ignored :( But, for 2010, and a fresh new start, I've updated the background!
~~ My first goal is to try to post AT LEAST weekly, if not a couple of times per week.
~~Also regarding my blog, which will help me with weekly posts, I want to feature Artisans like myself! I would like to try to feature an Artisan every two weeks. Everyone needs a little more exposure!
~~I also have a way I would like to select my next Artisan for the blog feature. All you have to do to be "entered" into the drawing for the next Artisan Feature is simply comment on my Blog posts! Easy. Simple as that! This allows me an unbiased way to select Artists, as well as, hopefully bring more traffic to my blog. I'll have special posts that will request your comments for the feature. Though, I'd like you to ALWAYS comment on my blog posts if you read them!
I'll pull the names from "specially marked" blog posts for the next feature. The selected Artist will be asked a few questions, and will be featured within, hopefully, one week.
~~ My next goal is to be better organized. I need to totally re-do, and inventory what I have! I have general containers, drawers that are for particular supplies, but, it's getting to that point where it's not working anymore! Drawer for Sterling Silver findings?? Well, you have jumprings, little ball spacers, daisy spacers, chain, clasps, crimps, charms, links, blah blah blah! See?? Same goes for bronze findings, copper findings, gemstones.....and it goes on and on and on!
~~ Along with this organization goes keeping up, better, with my tax stuff. I keep everything in folders according to quarter, but, I need to start actually entering this stuff into my Excel spreadsheets as I go. Instead, I wait until tax season is upon us and I start scrambling.
Happy New Year! Let's get it started right!
