One Week and Growing!

>> Saturday, February 27, 2010

WOW mom, look at us grow!

We are just over one week old. A lot has happened in that week. I’ve heard a lot of nice comments (and one negative almost stalker) and a few suggestions. The suggestions are welcomed and have been acted upon as best as possible to better the site.

  • We’ve added 30 crafters to the site.
  • We have a Give Away feature where you can list your give-aways using McLinky.
  • We’ve had interest from crafters outside the US. With enough interest, I could see additional continents being added. Right now they “float” in the water area due to software restrictions.
  • Put in place the format to promote a featured blogger.
  • Started to advertise the site and receive advertisements.
  • Gained 32 facebook followers. (link box to the right)
  • Gained 13 Networked Blog followers. (link box at the bottom)
  • Started a Twitter page.

Things to look for in the future:
  • A featured blog give-away. (each week? Each month?)
  • A featured blogger. – the first one coming soon!
  • More blog lists – if you have any ideas, let me know. In place are an Etsy and Artfire list as well as an instruction list.

Things you can do:
  • Promote The Craft Map to your fellow crafters.
  • Join the groups at Facebook, Networked Blog, and Twitter.
  • Drop me a note or make a suggestion.
  • Let me know if The Craft Map has generated any page views for you.
  • Visit the resources page; these links help support the site.

I will continue to work hard for you promoting The Craft Map. As I have said, I thought this was a good idea and one I thought the craft community could use. When I started The Craft Map I had no idea how it would be received, I have been blessed with the initial turn out. My hope is that it continues to grow and is a benefit to you all.

I think this whole idea is really cool! Am trying to sign up but there's a glitch in the blogger layout software so I've tried to email a screen shot of the problem to you....hope it can be fixed soon so I can try again to add my blog here and get involved!!

I'd love to be included. I design beaded jewelry and accessories.

I recommended this site to some people today and they told me that I am not listed. I am on the actual map but that is all. I'm not listed. I had deleted the email last night so I am replying to this post in hopes that you see it.

Coltpixy, you are listed. It takes a few different operations to put you on all the lists and the map. Sometimes it takes me more than one day to get it all done since we are growing so fast. Thanks for bearing with me as I continue to update.

I am super excited that you added me! I have already seen traffic to my blog.
Can you add an "h" to something in my blog name on the map and on the list under my state(Missouri)?
Thanks so much!!!
