Around The World Blog Hop

Last week the amazing Jen from One Thimble nominated me to participate in the Around the World Blog Hop. I've known Jen for a few years now, first when I had my own crafty business and she included me a local handmade business group and in recent times I've been a regular contributor for her online sewing zine One Thimble.

This is a first for me so here we go:

1. What am I working on? 
I'm working on upgrading my digital downloads to online fillable forms. I am also working on the digital version of My Business Journal for 2015.

2. How does my blog differ from others of its genre? 
It's still a work in progress and it is constantly evolving, I like to think that my blog offers insight in all areas for handmade business. Having had a sales business in my 20's and then a leadership position in banking followed by my own handmade business for a short time I write about my observations in business and hope to help everyone who visits me for a time. While a bit quiet lately I have many articles waiting to publish. 

3. Why do I write what I do? 
My blog is a way to help as many people as I can to navigate the somewhat lonely journey of a handmade business owner. I am passionate about handmade and I really feel that if set up correctly, the home-based handmade business will become an important part of the economy. The Handmade Business Mentor Blog is a place to find helpful information on a variety of issues in relation to running a business and specifically about running a handmade business.

4. How does my creating process work? 
I'm a stationery addict. I have notebooks and notebooks full of articles to write, being written and waiting to publish. I tend to research common areas of concern for article topics and some of my most popular articles have been those written in direct response to some event and has filled an immediate need within my readers. My Business Journal has a long list of article ideas.

Next week I'd like you to visit two other bloggers who've supported me as The Handmade Business Mentor:

Michelle from Sew n Sow
