Social media

This week I have been focussing on my social media. I currently work in technology but I am aware that many artists and crafters don't have the confidence or the know-how to use the internet to help to promote and sell their work. I am looking at putting together a course in social media specifically for artists and crafters. So, I decided to make sure I was up to scratch on everything before trying to tell other people what to do!

In the wonderful world of the internet - this week I have
Re-listed some items on Etsy
Joined some teams on Etsy
Set up my lightboat twitter account (I already use twitter but I wanted an account specifically for the jewellery). Search for light_boat to follow me
Added my twitter feed to my blog (I do love a widget!)
Joined network blogs. Now I'm following some fantabulous inspiring blogs (you can follow me by clicking on the button - scroll down a bit, it's on the right of the screen!)
Started a facebook fan page for Light boat Jewellery
Added a widget to display my Etsy shop, found at craftcult.com

Creativity
I finished the bamboo wool scarf. It's very soft and a fab colour
Made a silver clay heart shaped pendant with a cubic zircona stone - well valentines day is coming up!
Made a pair of silver clay earrings

  1. This is great Anna!
    Learning how to take advantage of social media and networking to self-promote our work is very important. I am sure your course will be great !!

  2. Thanks Lorena. I will try to get a copy of 'I'd rather be in the studio'. I had a look at Alyson Stanfield's website too and found what she is doing is very interesting
