A second mini-post of the day to piggy back onto today's post...
First of all, thank you so much for all of the ideas and suggestions and questions surround what business or business I am referring to when I consider a name change! Every comment has caused me to consider new perspectives and options! (The Other Tracey has me on pins and needles waiting to talk on the phone with her to hear her always fabulous ideas, and Leslie Brown, you had me laughing at the forward thinking of the possibility down the road that my last name could change!) You all see things from angles I had never thought of or considered!!!
When I am talking about changing from A Cottage Industry to something possibly with my real name (or not, once I hear the Other Tracey's ideas!) I am wanting to brand all aspects of things I do into one single name. This includes my blog, my booth space at Camas Antiques, and my Cottage Industry etsy shop. I think my tee shirts are going to be going away, as the manufacturer discontinued my favorite V-neck tee and I haven't really been selling as many as I had hoped. (You never know until you try!)
I hope this helps to clarify what all I am referring to when I did my last post! Thank you again so very much for your invaluable ideas and input!
