"Claire Donovan-Blackwood: The Craft Blogger’s Handbook for Beginners a beginner blogger introduction to happiness eBook review
I have been making cards for about a year and a half, I have been pinning lovely things to my boards and reading blogs for inspiration and I must admit I have had a dilemma many crafters have – a hobby that gives me a lot of satisfaction, a new passion that is taking more and more time, life and job getting in the way and money that my new hobby gets me to spend – but how on earth can I make this work right? I’ve encountered many bloggers who have been very successful and well known in their particular field but was too shy to ask how they do it – suspecting I wouldn’t get a simple answer.
I started following Claire’s blog on handmade crafts and handlettering because I liked what she had to offer and the way she spoke to me through her posts and newsletters. Claire’s book couldn’t have come at a better moment – I was ready to make the big step and find out what all this blogging is about.
Claire Donovan-Blackwood is a lovely young lady who wrote this fabulous ebook for people like me. Her ebook ‘The Craft Blogger’s Handbook for Beginners’ is a great source of knowledge on blogging that not only allows sharing your passion with others but also – and most of all! – shows how to use that passion to make a living. In my relatively short crafting “career” I have met many crafters yet none of them (or very very few) would say they wouldn’t like to be able to leave work and keep crafting – they all have a hard time doing what they have to do to be able to do what they love - crafting and spending more time with their families.
This ebook is definitely going to change the way of thinking of many. It is a step by step introduction to successful blogging – the way you want it to work, of course. It’s a well written handbook on what to do to get yourself a good start into a life, where you have time for your family, your work and your passion are the same thing, and your income (or spending it on craft supplies) is no longer giving you sleepless nights. A lot of useful tips, suggestions and how-to’s in this ebook get a huge boost with the support, encouragement and words of friendly advice from Claire and fellow-craft-bloggers in Claire’s Facebook group. In case you find yourself lacking inspiration, Claire shows how you can find ideas for your posts and make them attractive to your readers. It is stuffed with clear instructions on using various tools, photo tutorials on the IT stuff (that scares off many talented crafters unnecessarily), tips on how to manage the load of new tools and not get overwhelmed and what tools to use to manage everything without tons of sticky notes everywhere. And once you read it and try it out it isn’t that scary any more. Not sure how to get readers visit your blog? Claire explains it all! Not quite used to processing photos? No worries - this handbook covers the basics. What options are there for you to bring you profit from doing what you love? Many! Don’t get discouraged by all the new world of technology and social media fancy lingo, you will learn it and get used to it in no time.
Wait! One more thing! What also makes this ebook a pleasant reading is that it’s based on a genuine story of a girl who once was where you are now and MADE IT!
To me – this is a book that I will keep getting back to – not only for reference but also for the comforting feeling that I can make it! Everybody can!
