While spending my days bouncing around the blogs and forums hunting down projects for the Daily DIY, I come across quite a few articles, tips and guides for Etsy sellers and those beginning crafty businesses. Just this week I came across four must-read articles for those selling their crafts online:

*How to Brand your Blog/Craft Business Part One : Handmaiden

*How to Be a Crafty Marketer Part One : Modish

*How to Be a Crafty Marketer Part Two : Modish

*Holiday How-Tos : Online Marketing Tips : The Storque

I've noticed that quite a few One Pretty Thing readers have Etsy shops or crafty endeavors on the side, and I was wondering how much interest there would be in me compiling a list of these seller resources. I was thinking a button in the margin a la the Crafty Contests, with a running list of organized links. Thoughts? Interest?

    We love the marketing tips and are currently working on an area on our site to link to the sites that inspire us. A list of seller resources would be fantastic.

    That’s a great idea! The links you already posted for those articles are very useful, and having it all compiled in one place would be really helpful!

    That’s a great idea! I sell a bit on Etsy too (though, not much at the moment) and these are some great resources.

    I clicked through to the links you provide here and I especially liked this one: How to Be a Crafty Marketer Part Two : Modish. This is a good explanation of how to find a niche which is uniquely you and it can be applied for many things other than crafts. I think I’m going to link to it in a future post, giving you credit for having found it of course :-)

    Rachel,
    You’re always finding new ways to inspire! A button with seller resources and forums would be so helpful. I’m here everyday, so it would save me some more time. That ’s what you’ve become to so many of us…the one-stop shop. I can’t thank you enough for your thoughtfulness and wonderful organization. I’ve been following along with modish,but didn’t know about the other links, heading over tonight!

    Hi! I believe I saw a pattern for an apron on your sight a while back. I have one through your archives, but cannot locate it. Do you remember this posting? Might you be able to point me toward the right posting? Thank you!
