Hello! I just got back from seeing the movie Julie/Julia and, due to the movie, had a tremendous urge to do a blog post. It's one of those movies that gives you the incentive and encouragement to find and/or do the stuff you always think about doing but never work up the nerve to do. Even though I was disappointed at the ending (don't worry, I won't tell you the movie), I am still glad I went to see it. Julie is such a great inspiration for those of us who start things but never finish them. She had the same issue until she did her Julie/Julia blog. I think the key to finishing what you start or learning something new is to keep telling yourself that you can do it (and stick to it) and to not set your standards too high. I know, easier said than done. For a while I was starting to get bummed out over my low sales so far but then realized I was expecting too much too fast. So for right now my goal is to get at least 1 new blog follower, fan on facebook, or heart on etsy a day. It's like cooking in the crock pot I guess lol. It may be low and slow but eventually a great reward will come!
