How to put your Etsy Mini on your Blog

I was recently reminded of why I started this blog: to help others like myself that are clueless in the how-to's of the Internet-tech world. Since starting, and throughout my searching and maneuvering in the things that I have learned I now find it easier and forget that it may not be easy to a beginner SO - on the topic of
Your Etsy Mini
What I do is open my Etsy in one tab and my blog in another tab. In your Etsy, go to the left hand side bar and under 'Promote' is a link for 'Etsy Mini', click on this and go to the link and make your mini based on the choices you are given (if you are creating this mini to go into your blog then you should keep in mind that usually any more than 2 columns will get run over because of the size of your side bar in the blogs). You want to copy the code for the javascript version (for use on personal websites and blogs). Copy the html code and then go back to your blog, under 'Customize' click on "Layout", then all you need to do is click on the box that says "Add a Gadget" to your side bar. Once clicked, just scroll down the listed widgets until you see the "HTML" box. Just copy and paste the Etsy mini html from your Etsy page, and click save.
Hope this helps!

I have had the joy of partaking in a very special moment in somebody's life!

I have been contacted by a lovely girl that wanted some custome made jewelry for her wedding

she told me that she was having a Victorian style wedding and could not find something to suit her simple style..

I told her to let me see what I could come up with

YAY -- she liked them!

Just thought I'de share:

Using is the one of the simplest ways to get your business records organized. I have already heard of many peeps that I know that actually do use the Outright program to run their small businesses and are pretty happy about it.

Getting started is actually pretty simple:
Record your income.
Track your business deductions
Prepare for estimated and end of year taxes
See how your business is doing

And if you are working with a bookkeeper you can Add them to your books so they can manage records and prepare taxes with you.
