Etsypreneur Reads — An Up-To-Date Reading List for Etsy Sellers

reads

So let me ask you something…

As more and more information comes your way online is it a blessing…or a curse?

I’d say it’s probably a little bit of both. I love information. I also love the fact that I can learn anything I want to learn online. So in that sense it is a blessing indeed.

But the problem usually is that there is so much information that it can be a little bit hard to a) find the right stuff and b) stay focused on what I’m really interested in. It’s quite easy to get distracted by an interesting headline or a cool looking picture.

But I know from a lifetime of experience that the more I read, the more creative and inspired I feel. Reading about others who have succeeded in my field gives me the confidence to press on. Reading about the creative ideas of someone “out there” inspires new creativity in me. Keeping up with what’s going on in my industry gives me the information I need to be prepared for what’s coming around the corner.

Reading is a building block of success.

I want to succeed and I want you to succeed.

So I made a page here on Etsypreneur.com that we can both use to keep up with Etsy and Internet business related news, tips, ideas, and inspiration.

I tried to cover a few key areas:

  • Etsy and Handmade Business Specific Sites
  • Marketing and Social Media Specific Sites
  • WordPress specific sites (because I think your blog is your friend)

I know beyond any doubt that I missed some great sites, so please let me know in the comments on this post if you have a favorite site in these categories that I should include.

75 Links Updated Automatically

The list includes the five most recent articles from 15 blogs and is updated automatically when a new post is added, so you can count on always up-to-date information.

I just built this on Saturday, so I hope it keeps working right!

And I hope it helps.

    Wow, thats a great idea. I’ve definitely been searching for something like this! I thought I was doing a good job keeping track of my Etsy related research, sites that support me when I support them, you know the drill. But as the months go on its becoming a little bit overwhelming. Also I try let some other Etsy friends know when I find good stuff, but that too can be hard to keep track of. Having an Etsy shop really is SOOOO much more than creating an item!

    Heading over to check it out and thanks again for doing this!

    This is great! I happened upon this in my search for information to get my shop ready for the holidays, so I’m going to try to ready one of these links each day for a while as part of that process. Thanks so much for compiling this list!
