Yep, the blog is a year old.
I started it, to link to my past employer Vintage Appliances . For the same old reason, “money”, that didn’t work out. So here I am, a vintage appliance appraiser with the blog.
Why am I still doing it? I don’t make much money from doing the appraisals.
I love research (yes, I’m weird). I love and know about vintage appliances. I love to share the information. I love people who have and use their antique and vintage appliances. I stuck with the blog and it grows.
What I learned –
1. Although I love WordPress, I would have started out on a site where I could advertise. I have no clue how to change this or switch my whole blog over so it can make money. Help!
2. When you write, people read. I don’t consider myself a great writer but hey, people still read the blog! So write more often.
3. You can really make new friends over the internet. You never see them but they’re there. I can’t even fathom how much help I’ve got. Plus a free avatar design from my sweet young friend in Manhattan. They pump you up and are there when you need moral support.
4. One of the things I ask myself – “will I care about this a year from now”? Yes, I think I will.
So what’s next? More appliances duh. More editing, more learning, more research and more vintage kitchens.
Here’s a look at our next kitchen – The 1913 Red Vintage Kitchen in Iowa
