Learn how to get more customers, traffic, fans, and comments on your jewelry blog.
Welcome! I'm Rena Klingenberg, founder of Jewelry Making Journal (and other resources for jewelry artists)!
In my travels around the Internet, I notice that some jewelry artists' blogs receive a lot of traffic, comments, and followers.
But others don't.
In fact, I think the majority of the jewelry blogs I visit should be getting a lot more action - especially considering the time and effort you're investing in your blog.
So I asked you what your blogging roadblocks are - and then put together this 120-page "Jewelry Blogging Success Guide".
There are so many excellent ideas for blog posts here that I think I'm set up for over a year now.
I love the Editorial Calendar idea! This is a great way to stay focused on my blogging goals and it compels me to follow through. I really need that!
I also enjoyed your tips on getting visitors to leave comments on my blog.
Something else I had never considered was writing a post based on questions I'd received via emails. Great idea.
Finding, connecting and keeping your "tribe" was also one the subjects I especially appreciated, as all relationships need to be nurtured. So "paying it forward" and encouraging and supporting others is essential.
This guide is more than an excellent resource for those of us struggling to maintain an interesting, productive, jewelry blog, it's essential.
When I asked "What are you struggling with when it comes to blogging for your jewelry business?" - the top responses were:
- Writer's block ("I don't know what to blog about, and I'm not very interesting!")
- Time constraints ("How often do I have to blog? I don't have time for blogging!")
- Privacy ("I don't want to reveal anything personal.")
- How to get started ("How do I set up a blog? I'm not a techie.")
- How to get comments ("Nobody comments on my blog posts!")
- Traffic ("How do I get people to come to my blog?")
- How to get people engaged ("I get traffic but no visitor interaction.")
Here's how I cover these issues in the "Jewelry Blogging Success Guide":
The #1 Question:
"What Should I Blog About?"
In the "Jewelry Blogging Success Guide" I've included 260 jewelry blog post topic ideas plus 123 bonus blog post starters.
That's 383 prompts for writing your posts!
That's enough ideas for . . .
- more than a year of blogging 7 days a week
- about 2.5 years of blogging 3 days a week
- about 7.3 years of blogging 1 day a week
- almost 16 years of blogging 2 days a month!
And of course, you can re-use any of these topics and blog post starters many times over - as a followup to your previous post(s) on that topic, or with a completely new perspective on the topic.
These aren't just generic blog post ideas.
They're specific to blogging about handmade jewelry - and they're topics your audience will find interesting.
Sample Jewelry Blog Post Topics
from This eBook:
Blog Post Topic #70:
Discuss your favorite props and backgrounds to use when photographing your jewelry, and why you like them.
What mood or visual impact do they contribute to the photos? Where did you get these items? Is there a story behind any of them?
Include photos showing these props and backgrounds at work in your jewelry photography.
Blog Post Topic #255:
Blog about a jewelry-making item or tool you have - but you've never used it yet. (I have a few things like that in my stash!)
How were you planning to use this item when you acquired it? Why haven't you used it yet?
Do you think you'll ever use it, or has the inspiration to use this item faded? Is there an alternative way you might use it?
I loved your previous books so I immediately downloaded your blogging book. OMG I am in heaven!
I have taken several seminars in the past but just never got blogging off the ground. Now I know exactly what to do and have so many topics I am excited about.
LOVE the blog calender concept, which I have already set up.
I can't thank you enough. . .
"But I Don't Have Time
Actually, blogging for your jewelry business doesn't need to be time-consuming.
In "Jewelry Blogging Success Guide" I discuss how often you need to post in your blog at minimum (not as often as most jewelry artists think).
And I share my super-simple Editorial Calendar system for planning and scheduling your posts in advance.
Even during your busiest times of year, this system saves you from going long stretches of time between posts (which most of us have done!).
"I Don't Want to
Reveal Anything Personal."
On your jewelry blog, you never have to reveal anything you don't want to.
Although some people are comfortable sharing absolutely everything online, many of us aren't.
So in the "Jewelry Blogging Success Guide" I show you how to decide on your personal "sharing" boundaries - and how setting that guideline makes it easier to blog.
I also list some of the things I've shared online - and why those things are within my personal sharing boundaries.
"How Do I Set Up a Blog?"
Setting up a new blog is easier now than it's ever been.
In the "Jewelry Blogging Success Guide" I list the popular blogging platforms, and show you where to get started with each.
I also de-mystify the two types of WordPress blogs (WordPress.org vs. WordPress.com).
And I'll share my recommendations for starting a new blog - whether you have tech skills or not.
Simple Ways to Get
Comments, Followers, and Traffic.
In this ebook I explain 7 ways to get more comments on your blog posts; 16 ways to develop a following (your "tribe"); and 33 ways to get more links and traffic.
These are all easy, do-able actions - and many of them are actually fun!
You Didn't Ask for! :)
I've also included my strategies for writing better blog posts, creating effective blog post titles, and simple tweaks that make a jewelry blog more successful.
All of which make blogging much easier - and help your posts get more eyeballs and engagement!
This ebook is loaded with hundreds of handmade jewelry blogging strategies, tips, and ideas that you won't find anywhere else.
It's designed to guide you through creating a successful jewelry blog that you can use to grow your business, your "tribe", and your opportunities.
Loved that it's an easy read with lots of useful tips for both beginners and those of us who have an established blog.
I found especially useful the section listing hundreds of ideas for blog topics and the information on techniques to use to entice readers to go to your shop or to read more of your blog articles.
Having simple checklists you can go through quickly is a huge time-saver.
It also ensures that your posts are always high-quality and not missing anything important.
These are checklists I personally use in my blogging activities.

Jewelry Blogging Success Guide
review by Anindita Basu
This ebook is not a busy work like we see so many these days. I can see the hard work right away in its 121 pages. They are packed with very valuable information and necessary resources.
For the absolute beginner the Part 1 will give all the options and resources to start.
My need was deeper and I found it in Part 2. I have started blogging, but why is it not moving? Well the answer is in Page 26-31. I need to use the Editorial Calendar!
What if I am stuck with the writer's block? Well she has given 260 ideas!
How do I start the first sentence? There are 123 first sentences provided. So how can I escape now?
When I pout that no one is commenting - she has given 7 ways to solve that problem and 16 thoughtful ideas to build loyalty.
At the very end you'll find a checklist too.
My, there is so much in this book . . . the tools are all there, now I have to use them consistently if I want my blog to roll.
I am so thankful to you, Rena. I have your other ebook - Social Networking. You have again done a great job.
And to my jewelry making blogger friends - I highly recommend this book. Give it a try.
