ArtFire and ProBlogger Resources

Last year, I set a goal to take my art to a new level and make it a small business. 2009 is the time for me to set up an online shopping account to sell my art and to figure out how to improve my blog. I discovered two resources to help reach these goals from friends last week. Thank goodness they offer me the help and support that I need.

ArtFire Handmade is a new online site similar to Etsy to sell art and crafts. In the next few months, look for my new Creative Journeys studio where you can purchase what I create online.

Darren Rowse from ProBlogger offers a free, online course called "31 Days to Build a Better Blog". His workshop starts April 6th and you still have time to sign up. He already has 6000 students registered! With his help, I plan to give my blog a new look.

Check out these resources and see if they can help you reach your goals. I'm excited about the opportunities both bring to my work.

Thanks for the head's up on the blogging class, I signed up! The lessons are coming by email, and don't absolutely HAVE to be done every day.
