    What does my blog need? (I know it needs content & pictures, recpes & giveaways)

    What is a plugboard & do I want one?

    What else do I need to know? I am blog ignorant!

    You blog well!

    A plugboard is a part of your blog that others can plug their sites, usually with a very small image, usually in the side bar (at least that's where I often see them). If it were my blog, I probably wouldn't want one, but if you want to promote other's sites, then you might want it. I think it might depend how much B2B networking you want to do, and if you go that route, you'll want to find other blogs that have plugboards as well and plug in, but there are other ways to network with other businesses rather than a plugboard.

    I think once you get some more content, pictures, contest/giveaway stuff etc, and anything else to make it a fun spot on the web (which of course takes time, and you are totally on your way!), and then promote the heck out of it, you'll have a really awesome advertising tool. :)

    Anyways, it's a great start, looks really nice!

    If I did a plug board it would be all things handmade & not just B&B.

    In that case, a plug board might do really well. :)

    Great blog!

    Ours is a work in progress visually. I'm working on coding in a few changes right now.

    We made the front page of Etsy about 30 minutes ago!!!

    I blogged about it as well as put the screenshot on our flickr page!

    I need to set up a blog. Not very good at keeping up on personal blogs, but maybe a business blog might be easier....

    Checking back again.

    We update our blog on an almost daily basis (sometimes we miss a day, other times there's more than one update a day)

    Feel free to take a read and leave a comment of two if you'd like.

    I love reading blogs. It's part of my morning routine, so if anyone else has one to add please do.
