So, I have been a tad lazy on the blogging front..yikes! I am very sorry about this! However as you know life can be hectic at times, which can mean things get pushed aside. Alas, I am back!
I thought I would write about the Handmade Artists Forum (HAF), http://handmadeartistsforum.com/forum/ which I’m sure many of you reading this, already know about. However for those of you who don’t know of it, I think it is a great online community, bringing together artists from all walks of life!
There are members who make jewellery, teddy bears, clothes, bags, pet collars…the list is endless!
Members can chat, leave comments, and also can post up pictures of their latest creations, allowing other members to leave honest comment‘s about their latest design. It’s a fantastic way of knowing what other people think of your design, without even leaving your home!
Not only this, members can also sign up, for a small fee, and sell items in the HAF shop, so there is no need to set up your own website, if you are new at designing and selling your items.
Now, most recently I have joined a Facebook circle (still on the HAF)! This is where a chosen member has the spotlight on them for a week! Other members will then each write a comment and ‘like’ their page, store, website etc. It’s a wonderful way, of spreading the word about that particular member.
I believe there is also a Blog circle coming up soon, which will also be a great way to promote and advertise one’s blog!
So, I thought I would share this with you, (I am not being paid to write this, i genuinely think its a great website) and if there are any other handmade artists out there, why not give HAF a try... :D
