Finally, after 2.5 years of being in business, I have the makings of a blog that I can be proud of. I have always wanted one but didn’t know how to get it started. You have provided the resources and support that I needed to make it happen. Thank you SO MUCH! – Christy

    Thrilled to be a participant of Handmade Tickle. I always wanted to start a blog but was scared to bite off more than I could chew. When this opportunity was presented I signed up immediately and it is everything that I was looking for to get my feet off the ground. Tim and Kim have so many resources to guide us through the process, beginner level e-course, podcasts, ability to ask questions to Tim and Kim and so much more. If you’ve ever had an desire to start a blog Handmade Tickle is for you.

    I am loving my time with Tim and Kim over at Handmade Tickle. With their ongoing support and the encouragement of the other community members I feel like I’m finally building the blog I was meant to build.

  3. Debra says

    I’d been following Kim’s Pinterest boards for ages and when I saw this pop up I jumped at the chance to be a part of a blogging community FOR makers. With their ongoing support (they’re always online) and the encouragement of the other community members (from all over the world) I feel like I’m finally building the blog I was meant to build.
    I am loving my time with Tim and Kim over at Handmade Tickle!!!

    I too am so glad to have joined HMT. I know that the beta offer price will be a steal based on all the help I’ve already gotten from Tim & Kim. The amount of information, videos, and downloads available in just the first month has been super helpful to me. I’ve already gotten my blog moved to a self-hosted account and been able to customize it to meet my needs. There is so much more to learn! I can’t wait to see how my experience with HMT will boost my readership and sales.

  5. says

    Loving, loving, loving handmade tickle. The thing I really love is being able to capitalise on the experience of bloggers in my niched to learn how to best drive traffic to my shop and really refine the content that I provide to my budding community. Great job!

    Handmade Tickle is everything and more! I joined the Blogging for Makers 101 class and LOVE it. Tim walks you through step by step on how to set up a blog, great for new and expereinced bloggers. You can tell Tim and Kim really care and are invested in helping you be successful. Handmade Tickle is a must!

  7. Carolyn says

    I’m so glad I decided to join Handmade Tickle and the Blogging for makers 101 class. Tim and Kim are incredibly helpful and supportive and their expertise and guidance is invaluable!

  8. Catherine says

    Belonging to Handmade Tickle is like living next door to Kim and Tim. As I work on my blog and have a problem I send a message and they answer. The only thing that would make it better is if I could take them some fresh baked cookies as a thank you!
    If you are new to blogging or have tried and failed this will be the best investment you can make in your business.

  9. says

    Can we join if we already have created a blog, but would love to learn how to make it grow? I created a blog on Blogger, but I’m still in the beginner’s stage.
