Let's Ramble....

I can't help it. It is in my nature to be wordy and to ramble. So be prepared for a chaotic rambling of jumbled thoughts in my head. 

I've been thinking A LOT lately about my business. So many things ahead of me. 
(Which should be read as: There's rarely a time when I'm not thinking about HinckleDoodle.) 

I have always struggled with blogging, but it's something I think would be fruitful in the long run. It's all a matter of finding a balance between my available time and figuring out what works best for me--frequency and content-wise. 

Do you all blog? Any tips would be great! I most likely will spend hours researching blogs that interest me and try to bundle it all up to fit me and HinckleDoodle. But it would be much easier if you all just throw tips at me like beads at a Mardi Gras festival! So commence the throwing, I have my safety gear on.

Another thing I'm considering is setting up a Big Cartel shop. It's always interested me because it's so artsy-focused! I chose Etsy because of it's growing popularity and it is also magnificently easy to use. Though Big Cartel has no listing/sales fees! I would be much happier to be able to bundle blog and shop together and have it all handled by me and that's what Big Cartel offers for a reasonable month-to-month no contract fee. 
Or just branch off and start my own website...but I'm not THAT tech-savvy to do it alone! And I don't have any/enough upfront money to hire anyone. So if you're interested in helping me out of the kindness of your heart and you think you can capture the vision that is HinckleDoodle...I'd be MOST GRATEFUL!

So many things to consider....

OH and I'm SOOOooooOOOOoooOOOOooooOOOOO close to starting production of coloring books all hand drawn, printed, and bound by....
(pause for dramatic effect)....ME!
But Project: Color Me Badd (do you remember that group?) is for another blog post.

Conclusion: One thing I hope to fix with my blogging skills is my tendency to be lengthy lol. So for now, let the tornado of rambled thoughts settle you back down gently, and we'll call it good for the day. 

You've done well, blog reader. 
Maybe next time I'll have a more focused blog post the next time we meet.

  1. Yay lets concur this together! I just started mine last week. I am sure I bore people, but I entertain the heck out of myself ;)

    1. Yay!! See that's why I can't keep up with a blog, I feel. I'm so boring, but I just happen to make pretty things lol

      I went to your blog, but you don't have a follow button! Get one so I can be your first follower ;)

    1. LOL I'm not exactly sure. It's been so long since I've used blogger and they've changed their set up. But at the top of your blog you should see the option 'Design' and I think it's available in the 'Layout' section. You click on those boxes and you should see the option.
