Uh oh. Now I have a blog. But what do I do with it. I guess I'll find out.

Well maybe I will start with talking about one of my hobbies, which is jewelry making. I've been making jewelry for quite a few years and have started selling recently. Not that I've ever made a profit. Oh no, I only hope to make a few bucks to support my habit.
So I found this website called Etsy, where you can post your hand-made stuff and supposedly sell it. (Note the word "supposedly")
Sounds easy. It's not.
First, there are only a gazillion other people who make handcrafted jewelry, and so the competition is stiff. Then nobody really seems to know about Etsy - so it becomes your job to advertise.
I don't think anyone can really make a living there. But it's sort of exciting to be able to set up a shop and see your work on the internet
You can visit my etsy site at this address http://www.contrariwise.etsy.com/
And since I have to hone my bloggins skills, let me show you what I listed this week on Etsy.

Now let me spruce up this blog some more.
