exciting things in store for february ((join us!))

Looking for a blog to sponsor this month to launch your blog or business? I would absolutely be honored to work with you. Lucky for you, the ad program is getting tweaked a bit so that it's even MORE beneficial for you.

Here are some exciting changes & new things on the radar for Oh, Sweet Joy! in the upcoming month:
1. I'm teaching an online class on the Influence Network on Finding Your Place in the Ginormous World of Handmade. I'm incredibly humbled and honored to be a part of this. Isn't it awesome when God gives us an opportunity to give Him all the glory? Come join us and hear personal experiences from myself in what worked & didn't work, ask questions, and get some encouragement if you're trying to find a place in this big sea of handmade. 

2. Three month ad partners will now have the opportunity for a google+ or skype chat with me. This is something that I'm adding so that I can be more intentional with my sponsors. I don't want this space to be a drop by and advertise for a month, get featured, some sales, and then move on. I'm wanting this to be more of a community and I think this is the perfect way to make it happen. You can think of some questions ((how do I get more sales? my blog isn't growing, what do i do? how often am i supposed to give discount code in my shop? etc)), send them to me, we'll schedule a time and I'll go over your questions while we chat. 

3. A week-long Valentine's Day series. Can you say heart-shaped cutesy goodness?!

4. Large ad partners now have the opportunity to guest post instead of a highlight+giveaway post. This is SO great for my sponsors who are bloggers that don't have a shop. They get to share a relevant post with y'all, I get to share them with  you, and you get some fresh material from a different perspective. I tested it out this past month and it was a big hit, I've really enjoyed it. Win-Win!

5. I am PLANNING on launching my new headband line this month. I'm trying a different method ((aka having everything made ahead of time)) so that the turnaround isn't so long, so we'll see how it goes! I'm still tweaking the design so that it's *perfect* and am really excited about it. ((I'm on the 4th prototype if that gives you any idea how important the quality & design is to me!))

6. Oh, Sweet Joy! is on track to hit 1 million page views in the next month or so! What the heck!? That isn't so impressive for some of those massive blogs out there, but I'm pumped for this milestone! 

Needless to say, if you've been thinking about it, now is the time to jump on board with Oh, Sweet Joy! to grow your shop and/or blog. I'd LOVE to work with you! Email me for current rates and the info sheet ((OHSWEETJOYatGMAILdotCOM))

Don't forget that if you participated in the Handmade Holidays Gift Guide that you have a special price/package deal awaiting you. Email me to claim it!



  1. I have no need for ad space {hmmm... yet!} but I think your plan is genius! So nice to see bloggers out there making sense of this blog world rather than going through the motions.

  2. One million page views is impressive to me!! Congratulations on all the good stuff happening! Very cool!

  3. One million pages views?! Woo woo! Congrats!!

  4. So many fun things--and 1 million page views...dang! I've been praying so hard lately about how to use my little handmade shop to glorify the lord and not just be something for myself. Can't wait to take your class on the influence network!

  5. Congrats on your page views! I am happy to have just reached 100 followers on twitter!:) Every little bit counts. Nice to meet you!

  6. SO many exciting things happening for ya!! that's a lot of pageviews!! congrats!!!
