Welcome to the newly formed LouisianArtisans Etsy Team (tag: LArtisans Team)!

A mere 10 days have passed since AccentEnvy sent out a convo inviting a few of us Louisiana-based Etsy sellers to meet in an Etsy chat room and discuss setting up a Louisiana Team.

Since that fateful convo on August 11th, here's what the team has accomplished:

  • Team Name: LouisianArtisans Etsy Team. If you're not yet a member of our team, but would like to join, send a convo to AccentEnvy - she's our group leader.

  • Etsy Tag: LArtisans Team. If you're a team member, please consider editing your listings to include this team tag. It will help other members find you easily when putting together a Treasury.

  • Google Group: LouisianArtisans, by invitation. If you're not a member of the group, contact AccentEnvy so she can add you.

  • Flickr Group: LouisianArtisans. Again, be sure AccentEnvy has your Flickr ID so she can add you to the group. If you're not familiar with Flickr, click here to learn more.

  • IndiePublic: LouisanArtisans, by invitation. If you're not familiar with this site, click here to learn more about IndiePublic in general, and click here to see the team page.

  • MySpace:

  • Blog: (not case-sensitive).

  • Etsy Chats: Wednesday nights at 8:30 p.m. We're having a great time getting to know one another.

A note about this blog:

We plan to promote our Etsy shops via links and slideshows, feature interviews with our members, applaud our accomplishments, discuss Etsy, share marketing tips, and identify local venues in which we can promote our products.

This blog is still in its experimental stage, so don't be surprised if you stop by one day only to discover it has a completely different look. I do plan to jazz up the banner.

I'd love to hear your ideas, too. Please leave a comment on this blog (or convo me).

Great job! Of course, I don't know much about blogs, but I think it looks fantastic. I like how you created our name in the banner.

Hey!! Just found the blog!! I do have several blogs and play with the design and html all the time. If you want something a certain way or added--just let me know--and I can play with it. Take a look at mine(I have several--yes....I am a blog whore--hehe) and let me know. I'm always changing stuff up on mine, so I don't mind working on another.

OH---forgot something---I can make a blog button that everyone can grab to put on their own blogs to promote too. You can see mine on my main blog-

yay LArtisans blog! I'm super pumped to be part of all of this!

Lisa R said...

tonya, thanks for posting! I'll be in touch soon. Once we get the basics down pat, we'd love to incorporate the tools you suggested. In the meantime I'm having trouble adding a flickr slideshow. If you have any suggestions, you can comment here or convo me on Etsy.

Welcome, peapodtreasures, I'm very excited too. This is going to be great! :-)
