Welcome back to Taylor Talks!
Today was the day of the craft fair I was participating in. Unfortunately, I didn’t sell anything there. I was so excited, and brought my sister along to help out, but no one bought anything from us. Well, that was a bust.
I was going to sell all of the cupcakes that I made yesterday, in addition to some of the string art that I have made, and I was also hoping to get orders for my business, Taylor’s Tales. With the holidays quickly approaching (much too quickly if you look in any major store), I was hoping to get some orders for my personalized children’s books, but no such luck. I felt really bad that my sister had offered to come with me, because we just sat around all day doing nothing. But some people took my business cards at least, so hopefully I will get some book orders in the future.
Some days can really bum you out, and make you want to quit, but I know I can’t give up on my dreams. Maybe I’ll have to look into advertising Taylor’s Tales through Facebook (aside from my business page there), and possibly through Google as well. Something has to work for me!
I’d greatly appreciate it if you would share this blog with friends and family through your favorite social media sites. If you’re sharing on Twitter, don’t forget to tag me (@TayTayK02) and use the hashtag #TaylorTalks.
My family has been doing foster care since I was three years old. I'm the only biological child in my family, though I now have five permanent siblings. Having nineteen siblings over the course of my lifetime has been an incredible experience, and I'm hoping that by sharing some of the ups and downs of being the only bio kid in a foster family, other foster families or people looking into doing foster care will be able to learn a bit of what life can be like. I also like to share what life is like on my journey to becoming a published author, as well as where my schooling and career choice are taking me.
