We’ve decided to put up a few of our Frank Moreno Ceramics pots and planters up for sale on our A La Modern shop. I think we mentioned this before, but we’ve been trying to see how best to utilize this blog - rather than having the blog utilize us! That has pretty much been the case, as the galleries and research are a ton of work.
I think it’s the only way to justify the amount of time spent working on the site. Potteries of California has settled into a decent range of web traffic - but like most blogs that get to this point, it’s nearly impossible to increase it due to the “limits” put on it by google and other search engines. We’ve had this happen before - no matter how many original, content-rich posts you write, you don’t get any more traffic than before. It’s HIGHLY discouraging when there are so many other Spammy blogs out there that get more traffic for just about no work at all.
Anyhow, using the blog as a cross-promotional tool for our modern housewares shop seems to be the best way to justify the work put into the site. The orange Frank Moreno bowl above is on sale right now at A La Modern. We’ll probably put a few more up in the shop in the coming weeks, as well as items from other California companies.
