S.O.S TitiCrafty and The Crafting Nook Need Your help!!!!

Well, it all started when I was creating my daughter’s 1st Birthday Party all by myself and only using my hands. I’ve always, always loved crafting and creating things. A friend of mine saw my invites and told me that I should start doing handmade cards to sell and that she would be more than happy to sell them in her bakery/coffee shop with no commission asked… Really? Yeah really!!!!

I started making them seasonal and generic ones and my Mom {a web developer} insisted over and over again that I should start a blog to show off my cards and get more business going. Of course, I did it. But as you can imagine my traffic was close to zero, my only visits were family and friends. Then I got curious about SEO and how to make more people see my cards and that’s when all started to change. Blogging was a completely different thing than what I had in mind and it was actually a lot more fun. Sharing content of things I love to make and teach others how to, was way more satisfying than just making cards that people actually were not willing to pay it’s worth.

Since about February 2013 I started sharing tutorials and I discovered how cool {and hard work} blogging was. Since then that’s what I do, share crafts tutorials, DIY projects and recipes. Sometimes, blogging and personal posts. And that’s how 2 years and half have passed! Want to know a funny thing? I started blogging in Spanish! But my niche was stronger among English speakers so I decided to switch and even though my English is not perfect and I struggle every day to have a good writing I’ve improved and learned so much reading other blogs. Nice huh?

Today I’m asking for help because I’ve been intuitively creating things I like to make and think that you like to see but the truth is that I don’t know. I want to get to know YOU better and create content that is relevant to YOU. With this rebranding and new image I want to refresh content and share things that you might need or just enjoy more on the blog! When it all comes down to it, this blog is really about YOU, my readers. By learning a little more about who you are and what you like, I’m hoping to be able to give you better content that is more catered to you! Plus, don’t you secretly think surveys are kind of fun? {Or am I the only one that thinks that?} I want to put more of myself on the blog and make it more real and personal. The best way to do that is by knowing my readers interests and passions!

This survey is super simple and will probably take you two minutes to complete. Most of the questions are multiple choice. The more honest you are, the better, so go for it! I can handle it LOL! And to say THANK YOU for taking the time to answer, I am also holding a GIVEAWAY for a chance to win a $25 Gift Card to Amazon. I know it’s only a small token, but really, who couldn’t use any extra money to spend on something you might want?

So if you are willing to take two minutes to answer my super fun survey HERE, you will be the best friends ever.

Thanks, lovely friends!

    Dear Camila,

    Thanks for sharing your blogging story! Good for you writing in English! I was a Spanish student and studied abroad for 4 months, so I understand how hard a 2nd language can be!

    1. Camila

      Thank you Hannah, it’s good to know someone gets my struggle =D… Even though I feel I’m improving I always wish I had more vocabulary and more knowledge about typical phrases to make my writing funnier! But I work on it! Thank you for stopping by and for the lovely support!
      XOXO

    Your survey was a fun idea! I agree with everyone, I had no idea English wasn’t your first language. We love having you come visit us over at Snickerdoodle Sunday, keep on visiting!

    1. Camila

      Hi ladies! Thank you so much for your sweet comment and for taking the time to stop by! Yeah I speak Spanish, at least that was the language I was raised with but I actually was born in Brazil so my mother tongue is Portuguese which I speak fluently too. hahaha And I had to end up blogging in English, how crazy is that?
      XOXO

      hahaha Yes I’m a {almost} native Spanish speaker. My first language {mother tongue} is Portuguese. And since I always loved English, my dad sent me to Canada for 6 months to study and later on when I was 29 I took my stuff, left my country and went to London to keep studying and practicing. Now I live in South America again! hahaha!!! But English still is my biggest struggle every day!
      Thank you so much for stopping by Laurie! Totally thrilled to have you over!
      XOXO
