Tuesday Thoughts : Blog or Social Networking Sites


Whatever you are, be a good one ~ Abrahan Lincoln

When I wrote my Sunday Stash post, I realized that there are many projects which I have not documented here in the blog. Between 2016 and 2017, I too got swept away in the SNS wave. 
While I was writing and wanting to link up to my old blog post, I just could not find it. As much as I love Facebook and Instagram for the instant sharing, I realized that blog has so much more. More stories and memories. Besides, blog is more organized. You can look back and see how far you've reached in your crafting journey. 

I even made a matching NCW clutch. I used burlap fabrics for the exterior and a contrast checkered black and white on the inside.

NCW using Burlap Fabric

There was interesting story behind those two. The set was sold to one of my Etsy customers. It was a repeat order. The package went all the way to the USA and came back, because she was traveling when the package arrived. We arranged another shipment, and again it came back because she missed the delivery. Naturally, I refunded the money, minus the shipping charge.  I was more amused than upset. Well, it was not meant to be! 

Batik and Denim ~ perfect combo

I made Batik EDT and NCW set for my Indonesian friend in Mumbai. She sent me the Indonesian batik fabric. I used blue denim as a combination and it turned out perfect!! She and her daughter loved it!

Batik EDT Handbag

This second batik EDT I made for a friend in Indonesia last year. She sent me Batik Madura from her shop collections and since it was a narrow fabric, I made EDT at 85% which is a perfect size for a handbag. I added leather strap and handles. 

Thanks Ony for tagging me <3

She wanted a wallet to go with the tote bag, so I made this Trifold Wallet.

This is the only picture that I can find in my google photos album. Pheew...
I really love her Batik Madura collections and picked up a few from her shop. You can follow her Instagram account to see her latest collections. 

What about you? Which one do you prefer? Blog or Social Networking Sites like Facebook and Instagram? 
For me, blog is always my fave, even though I got distracted for quite sometimes. If you are an online seller, you might consider  to start writing a blog. According to the SEO experts, blog always get preference to be indexed by google and always turn up in search if you use the correct keywords. Even 5 or 10 years later. Blog traffics are more organic, which is again an advantage since many SN sites started to shut down bots. While Social Network Sites, they like anything instant, it goes out of search radar pretty quickly. 

That's all for today's thoughts. 
Have a lovely day!

Finally I decided to take the Trip Around the World...

a scrappy one at that ^_^

 I've been reading all over the blogland and saw everyone post about this Scrappy Trip Around the World, which really inspiring!! that I MUST do this.
