EtsyBloggers EtsyMini Mondays!

Hi everyone!

I'm launching a new weekly bit of fun stuff for us. :D

It's called "EtsyBloggers EtsyMini Mondays" and it will be a public blog post here on our team blog which will feature an Etsy Mini from 1 lucky member of our team.
Basically it will be a weekly promotion on our blog which spotlights one team member, every week.

Then we can each check here every Monday and comment to tell our team member how completely awesome their stuff is. Are ya with me?

The official EtsyBloggers EtsyMini Mondays will begin next Monday, 10/08/07.

So I'm looking for a volunteer from our EtsyBloggers team to take this on and maintain this on a weekly basis. The volunteer will be a weekly guest blogger for our team, and will post an Etsy mini to this here team blog every week - either over the weekend or on Monday mornings. Someone who is comfy using Etsy mini code and who knows how to a) edit the shop id of the EtsyMini and b) insert the Etsy mini into a blog. The guest blogger can either simply insert the EtsyMini code and that's it...or they can also add to the post by writing whatever they'd like, underneath the EtsyMini. That way the EtsyMini will always be the very first item within the post.

Then, once the EtsyMini is posted here on our blog, it will allow anyone from our team to start a thread on the Etsy forums, either under EtsyTeams or under the Promotions section and let us know that the EtsyBloggers EtsyMini Mondays is up! That way we can also support our team there on the Etsy forums too.

Please keep this in mind: The title of the forum post must always contain the word EtsyBloggers - that way it will be easy to search for the forum thread and help bump it up to keep it going all week long.

How will we pick who is to be featured weekly here on our team blog?
Good question. Just comment here on this post and be sure to include your Etsy user ID and you'll be featured in the order of your comment! So the first person to comment here will be our very first feature on Oct. 8th. The second person to comment here will be spotlighted here on Oct. 15th. And so on.

How do I find my Etsy user ID?
Your Etsy user ID is a #, you can see it if you go to your shop and look at the address bar (URL) atop the page. For example when I go to my shop joeyandaleethea.etsy.com I see this http://www.etsy.com/shop.php?user_id=80947 and so my user id is 80947.

Any questions? Suggestions? Lemme know!

I suppose if more don't respond here we could work through the team list in order on etsy. In the mini features I have done on my blog I usually take a quote from the profile that explains or introduces the artist or crafter. Then a couple sentences of my own about what I see in their work. How does that sound?
