March Top Droppers and Commenters and April News

The start of April means that Jake's heading into his last 3 months of intern year.  We are really excited about that milestone.  That's what I've got for the beginning of this new month.

For the first time, in a long time, I can say that it's been a pretty good month on Entrecard.  Here are the top 10 for March.  Thanks so much to those of you who also take the time to leave me comments!

If you're new to this blog, you can check out my Top Commenters widget on the right side of my blog.  Just scroll down to see where you rank. It's right under my blog roll.  I will feature an item or give a shout out to everyone on that list in this monthly post.  I really appreciate those of you who take the time to leave me feedback!

Thanks to Grace of Dragon's Alley and Ann of Ann's Snap Edit & Scrap for stopping by and commenting regularly!  Here are some lovely items from the ladies on my list who have Etsy shops.

Sale Items:
I still have a handful of items in my sale section that are 2 years older and more.  I would really like to clear them out so I have more room for my brand new items.  If you're looking for a good deal on a gift or a little indulgence for yourself, check it out.

Blog Sponsors and March Advertising:
I have an awesome round up of blog sponsors!  These lovely ladies all have Etsy shops and/or blogs.  Check them out on the left hand side of my blog under "Private Sponsors."

Would you like to join them?  It's only $3 per month or $10 for 4 months to advertise with me.  Check out all of the details about it right here.

Bring It On April!
  • I got busy with custom orders and article writing during March.  That's a good thing.  It also meant that working on new earring designs for Bead Trends and making Christmas cards and fall card sets fell to the wayside.  I'm picking up both of those projects again.
  • There is at least one more craft show that I want to apply for this month.
  • During the past week, I picked up a few new opportunities for advertising and/or promoting my blog and long term earning articles, which means more earnings for content that I'm already producing.  I'm excited for what these new opportunities will bring.
What's going on with your business and or/blog for April?


  1. Yay- it's always exciting to welcome a new month. And what good news about Jake!

  2. I can't believe it's April! It feels like Christmas was just a few weeks ago.

    I have another bridal expo this month, I have a bunch of new items to add to both shops, and I'll probably be streamlining my LWC products again. I'm also tossing around the idea of writing an e-book for small business owners. Lots to do!

    Good luck with your new writing projects!

  3. good news about Jake and about business opportunities!

  5. Great news about Jake!

    Happy to hear the news of your blog and where it is going, money - making it is always a good thing! :)

    Unfortunately I don't have any plans for my blog, it is sadly neglected for the most part, since my attention is currently on getting back to NC and all of the plans needed to carry that out! In exactly 2 months from today, we will be on the road heading to NC! And time will fly, i know!

  6. Always a pleasure to stop by - thanks for the nod...
