“So cute! I’m going to make this!”
“I love this! Where did you get the fabric? I want to make one for myself.”
“OMG @MyCraftyFriendWhoCanMakeThisForMe Will you make this for me?”
WOW. They are SO annoying.
If you have ever posted your handmade work online you’ve probably gotten some sort of comment like one of the above. Extra prevalent on Instagram, these DIY comments can really throw us for a loop because they FEEL insulting. When you’ve spent your working hours building a business based on your craft and someone reduces it to a Saturday afternoon DIY project, it can really make your blood boil. If you have experienced this sort of thing online, then you will want to listen to this episode!
In this episode I talk about:
- The reality behind these comments.
- What these DIY commenters might mean and what they might not realize.
- Why I don’t think you need to worry too much about DIYers, but what I suggest you do with their comments.
- Your options on dealing with these types of comments. Should you ignore? Delete? Respond? I discuss.
- And more!
Listen now and share your approach to or experience with these types of comments below.
