Lisa, Handbag Maven, You’ve Been BlogTipped!

Lastly, on the true girly side of things, I have fallen in love with a new blog: U-Handblog. Lisa is a UK woman who authors this blog specifically on making handbags, purses, and nifty little hand-sewn trinket holders.

  1. Lisa goes to incredible lengths to give her readers (and customers) seriously easy instructions, with photos to illustrate the process the whole way. THIS is how a crafting blog SHOULD be - but I can’t even imagine how long it takes to put up a post!
  2. Included on her site is a section dedicated to inspiration. And as if her blog wasn’t eMom gets Crafty!enough, these scrumptious bags are enough to make any purse-loving woman drool! It’s another savvy website strategy - she gives her customers a reason to buy her products, but also thier own spotlight - many of the bags are made by her clients.

    So even though I didn’t buy my bag making stuff from you, here’s my own bag I made many years ago, and I still get compliments on it when I use it! :)

  3. The blog is a companion to the eCommerce website U-Handbag - an online store stocked to the hilt with purse-making goodies. What a great example of valuable content that ’soft sells’ her products! And check them out, they are indeed yummy!

  • Tip - One of the things I found while blogging was that my SEO results relied heavily on my category names and my post title names. I noticed that your categories and titles are catchy, but don’t contain a lot of the keywords your customers might naturally use to find you. Since your blog is still relatively new, you may want to tweak those now so that you can pave the way for lots of natural search traffic later!

    Thank you so much for the shout out. That’s really kind of you!

    Yep, those bag tutorials can eat up the best part of a rainy day, but I get a lot of pleasure from doing it when folks like yourself say that they enjoy the info, and when I get pics of lovely bags and purses made from the tutorials - I feel kind of maternal!

    I love your blog too, I haven’t across it before but it looks soooo useful, I will definitly give it a shout out on my blog.

    Thanks for the brill tip. I am going to make a start on changing my post and category titles tonight.

    I’ll have a look for others to BlogTipp as well.

    Nomination completed! :)

    I can totally relate to the maternal thing - especially when I help out newer bloggers succeed!

    I’d love to get a little more noticed in the craft blog niche - a lot of what I write about here is really relevant to crafters. And I used to be one myself, so I know what we creative types need - lots of help for focusing and time management! ;)

    Hope to see you around soon!

    I wasn’t familiar with the ‘blog-tipping’ meme. Well, I say meme, but it’s well in the blogosphere spirit of giving something back.

    You have a very nice selection of tips which I hope to take a closer look at soon.
