Night of the Rainy Day Links!

Welcome to another Saturday at Saturday Sequins!

I was going to write about something else completely. I'd locked my Rainy Day Links away where they couldn't get out and cause trouble. But as it happens in any scary movie (or blog post), they found their way out, and now they're stumbling around, moaning and groaning, and chomping on innocent bystanders like tiny handheld pies.


Yes, it's the Night of the Rainy Day Links. And the only way to put them to rest is to read them -- which I hope you'll do, because they're really quite excellent, in spite of their strange eating habits.


Here's a link I've been hoarding since 2011! Incidentally, it's one of my favorites. Jessica Swift writes that when it comes to your business, you know best for you.

Finally, a Search Engine Optimization article that makes sense! Michelle Mach gives some awesome examples of SEO for jewelry makers and sellers.


This isn't an article or blog entry, so much as an awesome website. Did you know that Joan Babcock has an entire site devoted to supplies, books and classes on micro-macrame?

Speaking of learning, I've always thought that the best way to do so is to experiment and fail a lot. Well, I'm not alone! This article on Scoutie Girl puts it perfectly.


From Think Traffic... 7 ways to produce epic blog content!

From Copyblogger... how to be a prolific writer.

Here's one from the Saturday Sequins archives: the ten most important things I've learned about blogging.

Food For Thought

On how to create remarkable things.Link

Also on why great ideas get rejected, and what we can do to make sure ours won't.

Another one from the archives: the super awesome sparkly secret to moving on after a rejection.

And another one from the archives: what to do about artistic burnout.

One last post from the archives: what to do when you're feeling overwhelmed.

And there we have it! Sometimes it amazes me how much awesome content there is on the Internet these days. I hope you'll have a look at these and share your own with me -- I'm always on the lookout for new things to read.

Thanks for reading, thanks for commenting, and have a sequintastic day!

Coming soon: more sequinspiration, the winner of the embossed sequin giveaway, and much more!


  1. Congratulations on the lovely feature on the Beading Gem blog!

  2. I just saw your lovely working on The Beading Gem. I love this sequin/embroidery look and must try it. I have been wondering where to start and your list of resources is wonderful. Would love it if you would do some tutorials. I am a new subscriber.

  3. What a great set of links! What with trying to make it through the Bead Soup roster, I'm way behind in my normal blog reading, but I really enjoyed several of these.

    May repost the SEO link. :)
