MARCH 2017 INCOME REPORT: Yarn baskets take off!

I’ve decided to publish my online income because I think it will be useful to other crafters to follow along as I attempt make enough money to pay for my favourite hobby.

I strongly believe from everything I’ve read that this IS possible.

I also really need to do this to keep me on the straight and narrow as far as my blogging adventure is concerned. I am a full time teacher in a secondary school and believe me it takes up a lot of time to do it well. To me teaching is the most rewarding action you can undertake in life, but whether you are a parent trying to teach your child to be healthy and wise, or a historian trying to develop interpretations of the past that will inform the present, it’s flipping hard work! It is seriously hard work. It means I struggle to consistently blog therefore I am, in some ways, making myself accountable to you dear readers. I am making a commitment to you that I will keep you informed of my progress and will, along the way show how you too can make money from your crafting hobby.

Here’s what happened in March:

North and South Scarf Free Crochet Pattern

I love this pattern so much! I went a little crazy with my favourite West Yorkshire Spinners yarn. This scarf is extra-long so it hangs in a dramatic fashion almost to the knees, when left straight and unwrapped. Alternatively it looks equally dramatic when wrapped around the neck as many times as possible. It’s made from West Yorkshire Spinners yarn and Wendy Ramsdale. It’s quick and simple to make for your man – you might even find yourself borrowing it on the sly…!

January Income Report: Will I Make an Income from Crochet?

Hello,

Welcome everyone, it’s good to see you here. I’ve made an important decision and here it is…

I am going to try and monetise my website to see if I can earn a small monthly income from my crochet “doings” online.

Eeeeshk!!

My main reason for doing this is to see if I can make enough to cover the WordPress hosting fees and enough to cover the cost of buying the yarn I need to keep generating patterns. I have no idea whether I will be able to do this, but others have and do, so I’m going to give it a go. Note the tone of determination!

I would absolutely love to take you on this journey with me because I hope to make it work and inspire other crafters to do the same. I am happy to go first and make all the many (many!) mistakes there are bound to be on the way to this goal. Are you up for it?! If so then please join the mailing list so you get my monthly progress updates. Done it? Yay! Good to have you on board – I’m really excited to be doing this with you.

So I thought I’d take the plunge and start sharing my online income every month, as well as sharing anything I’ve read, learnt or done along the way. I think it might be really useful to make public something like this, because I know I find the reports by other bloggers inspirational, reassuring and educational.

Income I’ve decided to include is…
