Business Profile:: Oh Joy

You may recall my featuring Joy Cho from Oh Joy in a recent blog post about my TOP 5 bloggers. While Joy is a fantastic and very successful blogger, she also runs quite a neat little business for herself and her family.

Originally launched in 2005 as a graphic design studio, the Oh Joy brand has grown to include various licensed product lines, like her nursery items for target, band-aids, wallpaper for Hygge West, baby wraps for Solly Baby, and more.

On her blog, you will find how-to lifestyle videos, and other musings with a focus on design, fashion, food, and “joyful moments from everyday life.”

Joy is also the author of several books, Oh Joy!: 50 Ways To Create & Give Joy, Creative, Inc., and Blog, Inc.. You may remember that Blog, Inc. was featured in another TOP 5 post that I wrote about books on blogging. It’s a major fav of mine.
