My strange strategy paid off

This is going to be very brief. Something surprising happened to me on Pinterest. It might not be applicable to other social media though… My Pinterest was not doing that well and the numbers kept on going doing. I kept on trying different things and kept on watching every Pinterest guru I could find. TheContinue reading “My strange strategy paid off”

Why blogging is not the shiny thing

Blogging is my next venture and this time I am doing it differently. Amazon, Etsy and other of my attempts were very amateurish, to say the least. There was some success but quickly fizzled out or there is a success but not in a monetary sense. Being a blogger longer time ago was definitely easier.Continue reading “Why blogging is not the shiny thing”

Testing social media algo :)

Every year, by the time August comes, I review all my activities and I start thinking about the Christmas market. Not so last year. Well, we all know that it was a very atypical year. Nothing planned worked and frankly, I got dispirited by it all. I thought to myself that no one is goingContinue reading “Testing social media algo :)”

Thinking about the next step…

There are lots of prediction how the world will look. It is clear to me that I will have to be more versatile and juggle lots of moving parts. I will have to learn few more things, too. From all of this I gather that the future is going to be about activity, flexibility andContinue reading “Thinking about the next step…”

Working from home – because that is the only way now…

So…I have completed several weeks of work from home now. And just few months ago I thought that I will never work from home again…. This time round I found it quite hard. I was distracted by what was going on around me. I spent hours watching videos about the pandemic; what to prepare, howContinue reading “Working from home – because that is the only way now…”
