I'll do a post. @Crochethooked, that was great. Let me know the day and I'll schedule it.

Not sure if you already have this but a google calendar with contributor signup days might work. That way you can send email reminders to folks who are writing. [it's how I write for my own blog]

Ok the Contributors page is up http://handmadeartists.com/blog/contributors take a peak and let me know what you think. This is one page with a quick blurb about each artist, the read more links to the full post, the title links to their shop.
Looks like I'm missing about 5 or 6 bios, whenever you get them done just shoot me an email and we'll put them up,
Crochet Hooked did her first contributor post today, congrats and thanks http://handmadeartists.com/blog/promoting-my-shop-with-handmadeartists-com

Very good start with this , hopefully once everyone gets going with monthly posting, we will be able to keep the blog vibrant and moving. So looking forward to this.

I have a desire to create, a passion for my craft, and maybe… just maybe I will inspire another.

Glad you like it, the contributor category view was just to put the contributor bio's themselves. The way it is set up is  I made contributor page, each one links to their individual bio.
The category was just for convienece but it is a live page, just has no links to it.

I'll do a blog post after I'm settled in the shop and have my physical studio done. I've spent the last few days ripping out a wall and putting up shelving so I have a permanent jewelry space! Now to finish organizing...

Take your time, we are way behind. We'll get it done though. So you remember that you were one of the original contributors? Thanks for all your help.
lo and what fun it was! and still reaping the rewards of helping out! Thank You!
so, I was trying to leave a comment on the contributors page - but couldn't log in!  tried the password I used to use on there and the one I use for the forum & the shop, but they didn't work either.
One other ? - what size do our pics need to be for the contributor page????

Only use your shop password user and password from now on. I need to get the cookie length changed on the shop, the forum will keep you logged in until you log out, the shop will log you out after a time not sure how long.
The featured pic needs to be 350x220, the rest can be whatever you need. It is set up so that when you do a post it will go into moderation for us to check and tweak before publishing anyway.

You email them to me.
My email admin AT handmadeartistsshop.com
Once I get your bio, I will put it up and change your posting permissions on the blog to editor or author, I forget which one is was right now.
Thanks so much!

Got it Monika, it will be a bit till I get to it so be patient with me.
There are admin login issues on the blog for some reason, it keeps booting you from admin, so anyone trying to contribute just hold on a bit, we are looking at it.
Thanks,
Andrew

The admin login seems to be working better now so maybe it is fixed for those trying to contribute.
