Hi Tim...I dedicated my post for today to Handmadeology, links to same and a few items from your Etsy shop as well. Signed up for the newsletter, too. I admit, while I don't spend much time on Twitter and Facebook, I do frequent the Etsy forums and blog almost daily. Looking forward to 1.26...thanks!

Hi Tim,
I posted on my http://IndieCEO.blogspot.com blog and also included handmadeology and TimithoyAdamDesigns blog in my business blog roll.

I may post another on my jewelry blog but will let you know.

GalleriaLinda said...

OK, I couldn't stand to not do this on my jewelry blog too. Do I get to combine results for the promotion...LOL!?

You are now on:


Best wishes and we anxiously await!

POSTED! and i signed up for the newsletter last week. I don't know if I have the traffic to win this, but I thought I would support you anyway!

The Beading Tree said...

I can't wait! lol! Tim, I've made a blog post: http://tinyurl.com/9q52vv and put the button on my blog. I've also made a bulletin on MySpace: http://www.myspace.com/thebeadingtree
I wanted to do more on myspace, but I don't know that much about it. Then I did a couple of tweets on twitter: http://twitter.com/thebeadingtree and have posted in the promo forum: http://www.etsy.com/forums_thread.php?thread_id=5996060
You've got a great thing going here, so we need to really work hard to get the word out so that others can learn too! :)

What a great opportunity, thanks for making this possible for us all!

I have added a post to my blog about "handmdeolgy" my perspective at least but can't for the life of me figure out how to add a button to the side?!?!?!

Lot's of liks though....kudos!



Simply Sarah's said...

"Lots of links" sorry about that. I am not as distasteful as that typo just made me seem...so embarassing.

From someone in the UK this is so exciting!!!

Tim, wonderful as usual and what a clever marketing ploy;)

I have added a button and a post linking to Handmadeology http://artinthewax.blogspot.com

Heartfelt thanks!!

thanks Timothy.
