Recently I came across two very good resources for small business and blogger newbies.
First, Oh My! Handmade Goodness. I've been a long fan of Sarah+Abraham, a successful Etsy stationery shop, who has done extremely well and eventually got her own e-commerce website. She along with a few other successful independent children's retailers started a blog about the daily struggles and happy moments of starting your own business. I subscribe to her daily posts, and I highly recommend you do the same if you're just starting out.
Second, Edit and Post. I just found out about this wonderful blogging resource this week! Ami Price, the delightful editor of Elizabeth Anne Designs, has started a new blog about tips for blogging and about business. She compares her blog posts to real world examples, so you can understand more clearly about managing your business and how it others see your business from the outside.
Two wonderful resources I highly recommend you take a look at in your spare time!
