I met Lish of Handmade Detroit at BlogHer09 and have kept in contact with via Twitter.
Years ago before social media, I would submit what I thought were my best craft projects to Craft and they were never used in posts. In time, I gave up figuring they weren’t good enough or just didn’t have the right appeal for that audience (no worries, it is just my hobby I wanted to share).
After harnessing the power of my social media circle I finally get 15 seconds on Craft, it just happens to be for co-authoring blog about packing lunches, not my crafts. Funny how things work out when you least expect them!
I have been blogging craft, recipes and more for the last five years, but recently added a Facebook fan page, where I post stuff that is too short for a blog post. Also, I am @udandi on Twitter, where I converse daily with local people (Cincinnati and Northern Kentucky), crafters, mom bloggers (I’m not one but they’re cool), librarians, recipe lovers, UD alum – pretty much anyone who is cool and engaging.
