It's coming up on that time of the year where my orders for knit and crocheted stuff skyrocket.
You folks know you can buy handmade gifts year round right? And that it really helps out the person making them? Anyways...
After the gear article series is done on Blue Collar Prepping, I won't be doing weekly articles until January 15th, 2015. There a few reasons this, one that I just spoke of in the upper paragraphs.
1) I have several orders for Christmas already, and the last day that I'm accepting custom work in order to get it out by December 16th is November 15th. After that the custom options are getting shut off until January 15th.
2) I'm about on dry in terms writing material that I can crack out. A large number of the articles I had done for BCP was due to the fact that I didn't feel like a large number of these prepping blogs where actually addressing things that were important... they were all doom and gloom. (Hey, one of the things you're going to have to keep an eye is depression and you stupid fucks writing all doom and gloom aren't helping, ya jackasses.)
Yes I've had some coffee this morning but not a full cup yet. How can you tell?
So when I am back full in January, I will have more articles on skills that are a good idea to be known and understood if you want to be comfortable during hard times. First series once back I'm planning on doing a break down of gardening and bits and pieces of information you may not know.
3) We are trying to get moved from California to Arizona. This is proving to be a major stress factor for me because we have soooooooo many things that we need to straighten out first before we can move.
Hence why I'm focusing on the crochet orders as much as possible so that they are as good as I can make them, and keep setting up that reputation as a good crafter for myself. This is because the Zibbet and Etsy store are my main sources of income, outside of the tiny bit that comes in from Amazon links.
This blog here will be maintained, but it'll mostly be just showing orders that I've managed to get done and probably cute video of puppies, kittens and other various animals doing adorable shit. But it's going to be a tiny bit erratic.
Now it's entirely possible that I will get all my orders done by the 16th of December. What am I going to do between then and my return date of January 16th?
I have books to read, to work on and a large amount of research to do for the next year's articles. If I do this right, I'll end up with several months worth of material again.
In the meantime...
