Two of my friends are creating a stir in the blogiverse. I want to share their achievements with you.
First up: One of my dearest blogging friends, Brenda, of Cozy Little House, has started something wonderful – Cozy Little Shoppes.
What are Cozy Little Shoppes? Brenda has always wanted to promote cottage industries. Many bloggers have their own shops, be they Etsy shops or some other virtual form of shop. If you’re a shop owner and decide to be part of this, your shop button will reside permanently on Brenda’s sidebar. Brenda has a very popular blog and gets a lot of traffic. It is a wonderful way to advertise your particular cottage industry. When someone reading Brenda’s blog clicks on your button, she will be taken directly to your site.
She will also have a separate Cozy Little Shoppes page on her blog where she will include a short bio and information about your business. Not only that, Brenda will advertise Cozy Little Shoppes on various venues. She’s already started to advertise on the Flea Market Style blog. She will also highlight each new shop on her very popular Welcome Wagon Friday post.
The cost of subscribing is very reasonable. You can access all that information by clicking this link.
This is a labor of love for Brenda. She really wants to help empower shop owners. It is all about promoting wonderful cottage industries run by very creative women. She is also not above bartering for your subscriptions – maybe a giveaway from your merchandise for her readers?
I know that someday when my sister and I get our shop up and running, I will definitely take advantage of Cozy Little Shoppes. Stop by and visit Brenda – go on, you’ll be happy you did.
Perhaps you’ve heard of Romantic Country magazine? Have you glanced at the Summer 2011 edition?
There is story inside about an adorable cottage entitled Tiffany Blue. I wonder who wrote it?
I’m so thrilled for her. She deserves this. If you follow Elyse’s blog you know she loves wordplay – she has a delicious sense of fun in her writing. You’ll love her writing style.
Congratulations to both my talented friends!
