As some of you know, last summer I started selling some of my furniture pieces at a shop in Stillwater, MN called Reclaiming Beautiful. It’s a shop that focuses almost exclusively on refurbished vintage furniture, so pretty much a perfect fit for my pieces.
Recently the owners of the shop came to me with a proposition. They asked if I would be willing to spruce up their blog and write the occasional post for them in exchange for a reduction in their commission rate.
It took me about two seconds to think about it and then say YES!
I really enjoy blogging. I love taking the photos, editing the photos, writing the text, coming up with the ideas. And I especially love connecting with the people who leave comments. I’m not as big a fan of the technical aspects of blogging, but my WordPress skills have come a long way since I originally started my own blog and fortunately the Reclaiming Beautiful blog is also on WordPress. That couldn’t have worked out better.
Since writing blog posts doesn’t feel at all like work to me, I was happy to take this on.
First I spent a little time giving their blog a fresh new look. I added their logo in the header, changed the ‘theme’ that they were using to one with bigger photos, updated some info, and added a link to their Facebook page.
Today is the official unveiling of the new look along with my first post for them.
I hope you’ll take a minute to pop over and take a look (click here).
Let me know what you think! And consider becoming a follower. You definitely won’t see me posting as often there as I do here on q is for quandie, so it might be convenient to get an email every time I do.
