Googling ‘ how to become a craft blogger ‘  brings up a few useful tips but not a lot of “nitty gritty” (although it does bring up this hilarious post). I’ve been working to consolidate resources, ideas, and create some community among sewing and creative bloggers – so I hope you find some of the links below useful! Do you know of something, somewhere, or someone I should have added here? Contact me!

I have links for relevant and helpful facebook groups, link parties, group pin boards, submission-friendly websites,  affiliate programs, ad programs & media agencies, blogs that “talk business”, google+ communities, & blogging tools. You could also check out my pinterest board about blogging for assorted articles that I’ve found helpful!

Check out how I organize my year-long blogging calendar in this post here. I also have a list of monthly holidays if you’re getting organized and planning projects out. I also share quarterly reports of what I’ve spent and earned, all found here.

I also want to share that I’m a member of the Craft Industry Alliance – it is a unique community so I wasn’t sure which category to include it in! It is a trade organization for creatives, including bloggers, with a recurring online journal, private forum, and lots of resources – so check it out!*

Ways to Network, Connect, & Promote

Facebook Groups

Be sure to read the rules – some groups only allow link sharing on certain days or in certain places!

Link parties:

  • There are SO MANY out there and honestly I have stopped using any but SewCanShe‘s on Saturday! I had trouble keeping this list current because so many folded or took long breaks. Let me know if you have a regularly occuring linky party I can list here.
  • This is an amazing list over at So Sew Easy.
