Welcome! I’m Rena Klingenberg – jewelry artist and founder of Jewelry Making Journal.
In my travels around the Internet, I notice that some jewelry artists’ blogs receive a lot of traffic, comments, and followers . . . but others don’t.
In fact, the majority of the jewelry blogs I visit should be getting more action – especially considering the time and effort you’re investing in your blog.
So I asked jewelry artists about their blogging roadblocks – and then created this 121-page “Jewelry Blogging Success Guide”.
There are so many excellent ideas for blog posts here that I think I’m set up for over a year now.
I love the Editorial Calendar idea! This is a great way to stay focused on my blogging goals and it compels me to follow through. I really need that!
I also enjoyed your tips on getting visitors to leave comments on my blog.
Something else I had never considered was writing a post based on questions I’d received via emails. Great idea.
Finding, connecting and keeping your “tribe” was also one the subjects I especially appreciated, as all relationships need to be nurtured. So “paying it forward” and encouraging and supporting others is essential.
This guide is more than an excellent resource for those of us struggling to maintain an interesting, productive, jewelry blog, it’s essential.

The Most Common
Jewelry Blogging Roadblocks
When I asked jewelry artists, “What are you struggling with when it comes to blogging for your jewelry business?” – the top responses were:
- Writer’s block (“I don’t know what to blog about, and I’m not very interesting!”)
- Time constraints (“How often do I have to blog? I don’t have time for blogging!”)
- Privacy (“I don’t want to reveal anything personal.”)
- How to get started (“How do I set up a blog? I’m not a techie.”)
- How to get comments (“Nobody comments on my blog posts!”)
- Traffic (“How do I get people to come to my blog?”)
- How to get people engaged (“I get traffic but no visitor interaction.”)
Here are the easy solutions to these roadblocks,
which are covered completely in the
“Jewelry Blogging Success Guide”:
The #1 Roadblock:
“What Should I Blog About?”
In the “Jewelry Blogging Success Guide” I’ve compiled 260 jewelry blog post topic ideas plus 123 bonus blog post starters.
That’s 383 prompts for writing your posts!
That’s enough ideas for . . .
- more than a year of blogging 7 days a week
- about 2.5 years of blogging 3 days a week
- about 7.3 years of blogging 1 day a week
- almost 16 years of blogging 2 days a month!
And of course, you can re-use any of these topics and blog post starters many times over – as a followup to your previous post(s) on that topic, or with a completely new perspective on the topic.
These aren’t generic blog post ideas.
They’re specific to blogging about handmade jewelry –
and they’re topics your audience
will find interesting.
Sample Jewelry Blog Post Topics
from This eBook:
Blog Post Topic #70:
Discuss your favorite props and backgrounds to use when photographing your jewelry, and why you like them.
What mood or visual impact do they contribute to the photos? Where did you get these items? Is there a story behind any of them?
Include photos showing these props and backgrounds at work in your jewelry photography.
Blog Post Topic #255:
Blog about a jewelry-making item or tool you have – but you’ve never used it yet. (I have a few things like that in my stash!)
How were you planning to use this item when you acquired it? Why haven’t you used it yet?
Do you think you’ll ever use it, or has the inspiration to use this item faded? Is there an alternative way you might use it?
Each blog post topic in this book
comes with questions and ideas
to help you flesh out
your blog post.
I loved your previous books so I immediately downloaded your blogging book. OMG I am in heaven!
I have taken several seminars in the past but just never got blogging off the ground. Now I know exactly what to do and have so many topics I am excited about.
LOVE the blog calender concept, which I have already set up.
I can’t thank you enough. . .

“But I Don’t Have Time
Actually, blogging for your jewelry business doesn’t need to be time-consuming.
In the “Jewelry Blogging Success Guide” you’ll learn how often you need to post in your blog at minimum (not as often as most jewelry artists think).
And I share my super-simple Editorial Calendar system for planning and scheduling your posts in advance.
Even during your busiest times of year,
this simple system saves you from
going long stretches of time between posts.
“I Don’t Want to
Reveal Anything Personal.”
On your jewelry blog, you never have to reveal anything you don’t want to.
Although some people are comfortable sharing absolutely everything online, many of us aren’t.
So in the “Jewelry Blogging Success Guide” I show you how to decide on your personal “sharing” boundaries – and how setting that guideline makes it easier to blog.
I also list some of the things I’ve shared online – and why those things are within my personal sharing boundaries.
You’ll be able to blog safely and comfortably
after setting your personal

I’ll share my recommendations for
starting a new blog easily –
even if you don’t have any tech skills.
