I'm working with a designer who is building a new website for alittleofalot over on wordpress.org. I'm going self-hosted, baby! By all accounts, this is the way to gain some legitimacy with search engines--one of the keys to building an audience. The site will only be down for a few hours, but I thought I would use this as an excuse to take a break from the blogging schedule and regroup.
I need to spend some more time brainstorming and just generally thinking about the best content to provide to you. I need this time to think about big picture stuff and to write. I'll come back with a clearer focus and targeted posts.
I also need to spend a little more time on Small Batch Woodshop--adding new products and editing our descriptions. I would like to come up with some processes so that when we get an order, I'm more efficient with getting it out the door.
Our summer schedule has been a chaotic and lazy at the same time. It's been so nice to let the kids sleep late and to come up with things to do with them. But having all of this unstructured time makes it hard to keep a blogging schedule and time to build our Etsy store.
We recently added some reclaimed walnut wood makeup storage boxes and we'll be adding some padauk and maple wood makeup storage boxes later this week. It's fun to add in some variety to the store.
I will probably be back on the attack in about two weeks--I'll keep you posted!
As always, thanks for reading :)
