Message Board Fun

Hi all!

Just wanted to let everyone know that the Yahoo group, which has been causing some problems such as bounced emails for some of us on the team, will be shut down. This is so we can boldly move forward in a newer, much more organized direction of our EtsyBloggers message board, which you will find at or by going to our cool new site (thanks to Sandra!!) at

And then I'm noticing that Sandra has already blogged about this...oh well, consider this a reminder, then ;D

Like getting mass eMails?

I tried posting this in the Yahoo Group but Yahoo was down and then my eMails got bounced back!

So...I'll post it here too. This is for those of you who would like to continue to receive mass eMails, here's how to do it:

Go login to the new message board and look under the "Message Board Help"
section. There's a new post there entitled "How to get mass eMails"
and I wrote a tutorial for everyone there.

And if you need help with our new message board, post your questions in the Help section there!

Here's a link:

And read the posts below this one for info on our new website and message board!

Have fun!!

We only need to remember one simple website address!

And the new message board awaits you!

We're moving...

Hi everyone!

It's been a while since I've posted here - and I missed you!! :D

I wanted to pop in and let you know that we'll soon move our team over to Proboards, and away from the Yahoo Group. I'm hoping we can get everybody moved over this week.

The Yahoo Group is way overwhelming for lots of our members, and there
are technical issues with Yahoo too. Plus it's so hard to follow the
threads and to keep up with the topics.

I really look forward to the move, the new board is very organized, and there are many more features we'll all be able to use.

And it's all ready for us too! I've created sections and areas for us to post, and would love your input on them. I'll send you all a link to the new board later today so that you can all take a loook - I'm just adding some finishing touches to the color scheme, layout and Admin stuff.

But for now, I just wanted to let you know about the move.

And I wanted to get your feedback too. I'd love to hear your thoughts on the move!

Etsy News re: Street Teams

Here's a bit of what Etsy is up to...

"We’re planning on expanding the forums into something like Groups on Flickr. We have Street Teams on Etsy but they currently lack a proper setup on the site itself. A new Teams section on Etsy will remedy this, giving each Team their own forum, group Treasury, profile, and list of members."

How awesome does that sound? An easier way to keep up and check in with each other. Cool.

Read more here.

And for anyone who is waiting for blogring approval, thanks for your patience.
Life is nutty.
