Newsletter October 2017

 I have been throwing around some ideas about how I want to keep my reader's informed. I have thought about changing my subscription service so I can send out more personalized email's, and newsletters. I have also been thinking about making monthly reports to keep a record of my gains and struggles.

I'm not sure if I am ready to change the subscription service yet, and I didn't see why I couldn't just make a newsletter in a blog post those of you who get an email every time I post something new will see it and new comers will find it also.


September was a great month. I published 3 patterns.

A new knitting pattern: The Baby Helix Hat 

A new crochet pattern: In a Flash Mitered Corners Blanket

An older crochet pattern: The Painted Sunflower.

I also shared with you some Fall Stock Photos

Social Media Gains


My biggest gain this month would be Instagram. I grew to just under 300 followers. 6 months ago I didn't even have a account so I find this really great.
I also gained new followers for Pinterest. 
I finally broke 100 likes and follows on my Facebook page. I worked the hardest on this platform this month and it paid off. 


With the income I made this month I was able to pay for our internet bill. I also paid for my domain name. I'm sure you didn't even notice the switch, which is how it should be. I've always said my goal for the blog is to make enough money from it to cover the grocery bill. I have all the confidence to get there.

What's coming up

 For October I am gearing up for the Christmas Season. I am re-opening up my Etsy Shop. I hope for have some finished objects (like my embroidery necklaces) in the shop by the end of the month. I have one pattern lined up at the moment for October. I have other patterns on the queue for later months. I am even in the planing stages of a CAL that I am hoping to have ready for January.
