The Thursday, Christmas In July Party brought in over 750 items, several thousand links, a bunch of Etsy Store Sales, hearts galore, tons of followers and lots of new friends. It was a huge success for everyone that got involved. Congratulations to all of you.
Now it's Monday and time to start all over again. Here are the party rules.
1.) ***You must be a follower of this blog to participate, if you are not one already.*** (A few of you are not only followers, but you seem to be stalkers of Tools Are For Women Too! Gotta love it.)
2.) Everyone is welcome including sellers and non-sellers, but items posted must be handmade by you.
3.) You can link directly to your Etsy Store if you want to. No problem. If you are an Etsy Store Owner, this is your opportunity for some free advertising. Take advantage of it.
4.) You may post up to 5 items in the party this week.
5.) Important - This party is to help all of you. It cannot be a success unless the participants help promote it. Please do whatever you can "pay it forward" and pass the word along about this terrific way to promote your blogs and stores for free. Email a few friends, write a post about it, post a thread in a forum, link to it, FB it, Tweet it. Whatever you want to is fine, but the more traffic we can all generate the better.
6. Even More Important - Please work together and support each other. I would love it if everyone that entered, visited at least 4 or 5 of the other thumbnails posted. When you visit someone's site be sure to leave a comment. Take it from me, if you want followers, traffic, and sales, you need to get out there and interact with other sites. So take some time and visit as many as you can.
Here is a button in case you want to link to the party with it...
1.) Scroll down past all the thumbnail pics that were entered before you. Find the little blue button that says " Add your link". It has a little frog face on it. Click on it.
2.) Copy and paste the URL of the item you want to bring to the party. For bloggers it will be the URL post.
3.) "Name"....This is not for your name. It is for the name and description of your item. You can use up to 50 characters and even include the price if you want.
4.) Enter your email address. It will not be visible to the public.
5.) Click "Next" and pick out the picture of your item.
