An Exciting Change

An exciting change in the team blog has taken place! As of last week, EtsyVeg has a brand new member page and marketplace! The "Crafty Veggie Marketplace" was created not only for organization, but also to bring attention to the team and all it has to offer and to give our members an even better way to showcase their talent! The new marketplace features members' Etsy minis rather than their avatars and shop descriptions originally listed on the main page. This allows members, supporters, and shoppers an actual (tempting) glimpse into each shop to see a sampling of the wonderful creations each member offers.

The new page also has a new "Sales and Promotions" section where members can advertise sales, promotions, and giveaways. This will create more page activity as we update it, which should bring more attention to the marketplace. More features are planned for the member page in the near future!

Along with the new page, come a few changes to the main blog page. There is now a "Featured Artist" section on the sidebar that will feature 3 member shops; those featured will change weekly. These artists will have a larger number of items featured in their Etsy minis to give them recognition and exposure! There are now also several prominent links to the "Marketplace" on the sidebar. Please feel free to add a link to your blog or email signature. ;)

If you still haven't sent in your Etsy mini code, please send the Javascript code for the thumbnail view and 1 row/3 columns to silentlotus. If you'd like to add your event to the sale and promo section, click here.

P.S. Don't forget about the recently added membership requirement to mention the team in your shop profile or announcement! Please update this if you haven't already.

VegOut with EtsyVeg! :P
