But first a little about my social presence & numbers:






page followers


Blog subscribers

My little sweet blog grew surprisingly fast from 2010 to 2013, but then I took a  break to focus on my two new boys and to grow my online shop. After running and growing my shop for the last few years. I decided it was time to get back to blogging and share with my readers all I learn about launching, growing and being successful with an online handmade business.

I am super happy to have a very loyal and loving following online, so I take everything I introduce to them very seriously, that's why is very important for me to partner only with the shops and businesses that portray similar cove values.

The monthly average of page loads per month is about 150,000 and 90,000 unique visits.

Blog Consultation

I’ve had a lot of fellow bloggers ask me to “pick my brain” and give constructive advice to grow and improve their blogs, so I decided to make it a service. Now I can “meet” with you over Skype and we can chat about your blog for an hour with a cup of coffee! I will ask you to provide me with information about what you want to improve and also the link to your blog beforehand, so I can examine and make a list of things to improve and strengths you should be focusing on.

The sponsor selection is at the discretion of HowJoyful. When looking for sponsors I look for shops/blogs with similar aesthetics and audience. I reserve the right to reject potential sponsors that do not match HowJoyful's vision, promote violence, are not family friendly or sell/advertise products or services that do not match my blog's readership. Ad spaces run for 30 days from approval date.
