This blog is meant to be a record of my adventures as a new home-based business owner. Starting my jewellery business was one of the most daunting things I've ever done, next to giving birth. Especially since I was (am?) pretty technically stunted. In this blog I will describe the trials, tribulations and, hopefully, eventual successes I experience while navigating the world of (really, really, really small) business. I also plan to use this blog to talk about all the aspects of jewellery design that fascinate me, keep me addicted, and cause me to spend thousands of dollars (What, honey? No, I didn't say thousands...) on gemstones, beads, findings, etc. I welcome your input, ideas, and stories of similar experiences in beading, jewellery design, or running a handcrafts business.

My First Giveaway
I'm attempting to run a giveaway on my Bead Planet's Facebook page. I picked a nice bracelet to give away, researched how to do a giveaway, and set about promoting the contest on my business page. I asked people to enter by liking the post, liking Bead Planet's page, and then commenting. That was Saturday. So far, I have one like, and it's my sister. And she didn't comment. I must be doing something wrong, but I don't know what. I need some advice on promoting my business on Facebook, and, more specifically, how to run a giveaway properly. AAAAAAUUUHGHGHGH!
