After reading a ton of marketing books (thanks to Amazon for keeping prices relatively low), one of the best ways to get traffic to your website is to swap links. So I was wondering if anyone wanted to swap links with me. My website is www.FENNOfashion.com, which is all hand-crafted fashion & accessory design related items. I feel like the more paths and avenues we have as indie deisgners, the better! Let me know what your thoughts are and if you would like to swap links!

I love this idea! I am always trying to create traffic for my site too. I like to reccommend Facebook as an advertisinf venue. I have had great success posting my link to my site on my page, and asking others to add the link to their pages. I haven't set up a fan site yet, but I plan to in the future. My site is ferrousious.etsy.com.

Not exactly a website, but an HP soap making group for lazy people who want no problems, lol.
It's a safe haven who will not allow in know problem chidren, so be prepared to subscribe (initially) with your home/work computer ISP and answer a questionnaire. Once you are verified you may use your free email addresses. http://groups.yahoo.com/group/HotSoapEtc/

Pam, were you speaking about my post of the yahoo group? If so, I apologize for misunderstanding what the the intent of this thread was. I am most definitely NOT a genius when it comes to RRS, Twitter's, HTML and such. I haven't a clue but from your explanation I understand what it is suppose to do.

I also believe in Paying It Forward, long before the movie. When I was learning soap making less than three people would offer new people any help at all and when I (a quick learner) finally know the process and helped the newest newbies (hate that word) I freely offered the help ON LIST and quickly made a few enemies of the soap makers who wanted to build themselves up by telling the new ones how difficult it was and it took me 20 years to really get it right. They were with holding help for their own emotional benefit and soon I was talked into creating a group as second option for HP soap makers.

The *good* old days? lol I have never learned how to do the things you are offering, I only know yahoo groups and the like where email comes to you and the files are uploaded on their site. If you care to send a detailed explanation of how this works, then when school is out and I free up some time from home schooling my 15 y/o son I may be able to figure it out. ;o)

What a lovely idea, my site is www.glitterangel.typepad.com. I'm off now to check out all your sites!

Hi Megan and everyone,
First, let me wish you all the best of luck with your websites and projects. Our website is actually a resource for crafters of all sorts. We make a font that lets you create beautiful Celtic knotwork designs just by typing! You can make your own patterns for all kinds of crafts, anything you want to use the interlaced designs on - stained glass, jewelry, etching, painting, woodworking and woodburning, leather, scrapbooking, cards....we have examples of some great projects our customers created with the Font at http://www.clanbadge.com/crafts.htm

There's even a new version called the Charted Font that makes graphed designs for beadwork, cross stitch, hooked rugs and needlepoint. Be sure to check out the link to how the Font works and the various versions at the bottom of any page on the site.

Best wishes, Laurie

Hi everyone, I wanted to respond to the question ab out my website. Yes I was responding to crafty websites. I am sharing my community website , so others can reap the rewards of what my site can offer those who choose to have traffic building for their sites to be noticed on the internet, We all need help in that department, and the social site I have actually shares your site all over the world as anyone on the site hits the send or post icon. It sends everyone who is a member, their network sites to search engines with a few things that take a minute or so, to be set up and it is free. I sent this up to help myself with a traffic builder and it has blossomed and I decided I wanted to share it with others so they can become noticed as well. So I hope to see those of you who wish to either sell your crafts or just to have others see your sites , Its free and alot of fun there. Come on and share, Hope to see you there, Happy Creating, Pam

Another handmade site for buyers/sellers is http://artistryartsengagepage.ning.com/ It's a social networking site like myspace or similar, but craftspeople can put up gallery pages and have seller accounts there as well.

As a beader, I use Bead-space.com, which is another social network. Lots of links off of the site to members' personal/business sites, etc., as well as access to tutorials, etc.

Other beaders I know use Artfire.com....I don't know anything about it, but am off to check it out, too.

My 2 Etsy shops are:
http://www.galleryzooart.etsy.com
http://www.galleryzooartdesigns.etsy.com

Another free social site for crafters is craftercircle.com. I haven't listed there yet, though I am on their sister site artscuttlebutt.com. Both sites are powered by ArtCalendar, and both are free.

Crafty... for Halloween! My husband and I created a book, How to Haunt Your House (including a KINDLE version) for creating Halloween decorations for both inside and out. Our website, www.howtohauntyourhouse.com also has videos, free tutorials, photo galleries of our home haunt from 2005 to now.

An easy way to do this might be to have people add their links via a guest book, and then you can look up the sites when you have time, and do (or don't) something more on a "Links" page.

I have just signed on with artfire, and am hoping for good things. Still have etsy shop open for the moment.
