There is a scrap cabinet in every frame shop I know. Why? Because leftovers are often gems and full of profitable inspiration. In the same way small bits of knowledge I have gleaned from being a past framer/shop owner and by being part of the EPFG or small facts I come upon are often valuable to share. Here's something I've learned:
Blogs are not scary or strange.¬†They are like Facebook pages with more capability for sharing information. They're like websites that are accessible for comments and much more dynamic and fun.
I have been blogging as a writer and artist for over a year. What does that have to do with your framing business? I have over 100 followers and, more importantly, I've met and talked with many people who are interested in what I do and what I'm interested in. We share ideas. Learn from each other. Encourage each other.
I have also been publishing on this blog for about a year. That's right. You're reading a blog right now. Not so bad, huh? But there hasn't been much interaction here. It's a great resource that you're missing.
I'm encouraging you not to be scared to sign up and sign in. You won't be spammed. ¬†You will get replies to your comments. You will probably learn stuff, be encouraged, and even have fun!
