  4. I am curious as to what blog posts you are referring to? I would be interested in reading those as well and improving my TPT store.

    1. I'm learning lots from "Teaching Blog Traffic School." There is a one-time fee for a year of access to some really informative videos and forums on how to do everything from branding to marketing along with blogging and social media. (Follow the link on my button here.) I have also found lots of info (for free) at
      I hope this helps you, too!
