Tweaking and Twittering
I'm still messing with name changes. My goal is to get my name and the products I make out there to the public a little more. I am splitting off with my Etsy shop form a cooperative with my daughter. She needs to find her own path and I need to have a shop that is just my carving work. So the new Etsy shop is The Sunday Woodcarver and this blog is now in support of that and called The Sunday Woodcarver Blog, though you will still find it with the old address. In addition I will be updating my facebook page to show the shop name change and I'm now a Twitter-er. I guess these are all the things you need to do these days if you want to sell anything. The trick is to have it all work together and make sense. Word to anyone who wants to go this way: think it through. Make sure you choose and image and name that you can live with. It's hard to make changes. I'm sure it won't be long before tools like Twitter, facebook, YouTube, blogging and selling will all be one thing, but for now, we have to learn how to pout them together so they work well for our purposes. I just want to get past all this and moving things from one shop to another so I can get back to carving and posting. By the way, if you're interested, you can follow me on Twitter @don_dailey.
