So, I’m still waiting on Literary agents getting back to me. That’s ok, it takes time but to stop myself from going crazy, I’ve been blogging around. I started a venture called Minutiae Blogs Content Marketing and Affiliate Marketing. It all sounds very markety and salesmany but in fact what it means is that I write funny stuff and link to a few cool things that people might like to buy, or at least look at. Here’s a sample of my wares!
My Giant Id – Funny tshirts, geek gifts and awesome stuff – I like to think of this as my testament to my inner geek. This is my powerhouse at the moment, hitting all sorts of nerd-spots with things like Star Wars minimalist art prints, questions like “what is a dronie?” and style advice like “the best funny Game of Thrones tshirt to wear“.
Fidelity Arts and Crafts – There’s a girl inside me as well as a geek. I know, imagine that! Probably more arts than crafts if I’m honest, but there is a massive crossover, plus I love sharing all the things on Etsy that are fecking gorjus like ombre inspirational signs, altered art embellishment kits, steampunk beads… you get the idea.
Make With the Food Already – Cookery site. This is more like an attempt to make a digital recipe card index for myself. I’m no Michelin star chef, but then, that means other mere mortals probably have a chance to follow the instructions too!
Mr Badger’s House – Anyone who knows me, knows that in the future I will probably not turn out to be a crazy cat lady, but a crazy badger lady. I indulge a fairly niche obsession here with badger themed gifts, home decor, and the occasional update on our noble friend, the British (and European!) Badger, Meles meles.
Beautiful Wedding Cake Toppers – this comes from a pet peeve that occurred around the date of my wedding when the only thing you could put on the top of a cake were ugly little effigies that had such blissful wedding themes as “Reluctant groom being dragged to the altar”, “Bride beating groom with rolling pin”, “Groom rather be golfing” etc. A nice way to signal the start of your official relationship. So I looked for some alternatives. Like a rainbow spectrum of butterflies to top your cake. Like a laser cut sign of your new married name. Like Swarovski crystal trees and porcelain bunnies… the alternatives are out there.
Toy Box for Christmas – an unashamed capitalist plug for toys people might buy their kids. On the plus side, I do research and review them pretty thoroughly.
They’re all linked into Minutiae Blogs which may turn into a business as soon as the revenue from commissions goes up in the affiliate marketing ones (hint, hint).
