I am a member of the EtsyBloggers Street Team and have been for nearly 2 years. The group got started around August of 2007. The purpose of the group is to create buzz about Etsy and our team members. To be on the team there are a really just three basic requirements. We have a chosen member each month that all EtsyBloggers are asked to write a post about. We have blog carnivals every other week with 2 topic choices each time. You need to write a post for a blog carnival at least once a month. The last requirement is to put the links to those posts in the roll call thread for the month on the team message board.
One of the other perks of membership is that each Monday an EtsyBlogger is featured on the team blog. There is a sign up thread for that on the message board. I share doing the Mini Monday feature with Lily of Tulips Treasure Box. It is called Mini Monday beacause we use the Etsy Mini widget to show off the shop. To be featured when your name comes up on the list the member needs to be current on the membership requirements I told you about in the first paragraph.
One other thing on the team blog is birthday greetings done by me each week on Friday for those active members who had birthdays in the previous week. This week I posted about two great members and wanted to share them with you here. The first is the shop owner of Spotted Cow Soaps and the second is Shell Mitchell. Both of them are outstanding artisans and if you come to the blog here you will see why. If you are getting this in a reader please come on over because the Etsy Mini widget does not show up on your feed. I really want you to see their products.
See I told you they had great stuff!
