If you are a DoSayGive reader you know I love sharing my favorite artists, artisans, bakers, jewelers, stationers, and other small businesses on the blog. Many of them are moms like me, trying to help their families financially, often working disjointed hours so they can be with their children as much as possible.
Today I’m highlighting some of them and – yay – many of them have discount codes in honor of #smallbusinesssaturday. Also, many Black Friday sales from yesterday are extended through the weekend so I’m saving you time with an updated Cyber Week post of still active and some great new ones!
Did you know the blogs like mine are small businesses? You might not realize that coming to DoSayGive.com and shopping my gift and clothing picks actually supports my business, but it does! Not only do I [sometimes] receive a commission if you buy a product you find on my blog, but the more page views and visitors DoSayGive receives, the more opportunities I have for collaborations and advertising.
I put so much thought and planning into this blog business – and still feel like I’m learning (and making mistakes!) everyday – so I’m genuinely flattered that you are here and return again and again. So on Small Business Saturday I want to say THANK YOU for supporting DoSayGive and sharing it with your friends (the latter is one of the best things you can do to help my business so thank you for doing that, too!).
