Etsy Holiday Boot Camp

Today is a beautiful day in New England - it's warm. It's sunny and clear. It's also the 25th of September - and this means a few things.
*It's fall! Summer - you were great, but I'm ready for the next season. Buh-bye!
*Like it or not, it is 3 months until Christmas. I have a few projects already planned for Christmas, a few more to figure out. (And I'm not a person who does Christmas early - I like to enjoy fall and Thanksgiving. The Monday after Thanksgiving, I'm all about Christmas.)

I have been thinking about my etsy shop (beccah.etsy.com) and how I really would like to put more effort into that and make it work, especially with the onset of cooler weather and such. I received an email from etsy actually about a Holiday Boot Camp and I'm all for it. So, here's my accountability blog post:

I, Nutmegknitter, pledge to participate in the Etsy Success Holiday Boot Camp to the best of my abilities. I vow to check in every week, do my homework and support my fellow Holiday Boot Campers. I will read the weekly newsletters and blog posts, check in on the weekly forum thread, read the weekly blog post, check off the checklists and salute the mascot. I promise to share what I've learned with those who need it, support my fellow Etsy indiepreneurs and, most of all, have a positive and persistent attitude. I understand that together we can spread the word about our handmade and vintage goods, making this holiday season a more unique and meaningful one to gift givers and give-ees everywhere!

This should work for my own gifting as well I think.

And while the blog is a really great public space for goal setting, I am still thinking about the specific goals I want to make and meet. I haven't yet decided if I should just keep it to myself in a notebook or put it out there - either way, it's out in the universe for good things to happen right?

And as a note to myself / to share if you're interested -
