Helpful & Inspiring Blogs

I read TONS of blogs & wanted to share a few with you today. These blogs are very helpful to creatives and those running a small business.

1. Blacksburg Belle is a blog that aims to help creative women lead more fulfilling lives while doing what they love. Written by April & Linda, the site is frequently filled with tips on how to reach your goals, interviews with small biz owners, and much more. Facebook

2. Imaginative Bloom is where I first learned of April Bowles-Olin of Blacksburg Belle. She is a regular contributor to the site & shares equally important information & tips on this site, too. Facebook

3. The Handmade Business Blog is written by Sheryl Westleigh, a sculptor & jewelry designer from Maine. She shares videos & information that covers topics like how to handle copyright issues and how to use Google Analytics on your blog.

4. Just Something I Made is full of great craft ideas, free downloads and more. Check out the DIY Projects by Cathe section for past projects the author has shared. Facebook

5. A Beautiful Mess is Elsie Flannigan's blog. I'm sure you all know who Elsie is, but in case you don't, she's a young, inspiring entrepreneur who shares lots of good info & eye candy on her blog. Facebook

6. Whether you live in the Dallas/Fort Worth (Texas) area or not, DFW Craft Shows is a great source for those who sell at craft shows. Don't miss the helpful articles relating to the Craft Show Survival Kit! And, if you are in the DFW area, check the site frequently for updated craft show info. Facebook

7. Martha Latta of Sunday Afternoon Housewife always shares helpful info on her blog, too. I've learned a lot about Twitter, LinkWithin, and much more by reading Martha's articles. I also guest blog over there once a month! Facebook
