FYI, Kimberly's the one who assigns the rings & she's away right now, so you might not be added to a ring right away.  Don't worry about it, you'll be added soon.

Gosh, I would love to be part of the Blog Ring, but I'm a little over-committed right now - I'm in the Twitter ring, preparing for a holiday craft show, a member of several teams on Etsy/Artfire, working a full time job - in other words, crazy-busy, as I'm sure many of you are.

But I'd like to throw out an idea for a new king of blog ring at some point in the future:  is anyone interested in putting together a "Blog Comments Ring"? I'm still thinking this through, but it could be looser - rather than writing full posts on other artists in our blogs, we make a commitment to visit each other's blogs regularly to increase blog traffic, and contribute comments?

Visiting/commenting on each other's blogs could have a great impact on our Google Analytics, and it's still a great way for us to get to know each other better.  It can be as structured as a weekly ring, or as loose as just starting up a forum thread we call "Blog posts this week."

I often feature other artists in my blog in treasuries, etc., but I find I can only write a few posts a month, and during the last blog ring I was part of, I honored my commitment to the ring first, and didn't really have the time to post anything else (a symptom of my own schedule). 

What are your thoughts? Like me, is there anyone out there who wants to increase their blog traffic, but may not have time for a full blog ring...

Lisa

This sounds great. Is it too late to get in on it? I would love the exposure and the blog content in addition to helping other artisans!!

I'm going to lock this up and start a new sign up thread.  Nothing like getting some preHoliday exposure and we have a few members that could really use a boost right now.  I will happily run the ring again if nobody else wants it...now off to start a new thread here http://handmadeartistsforum.com/forum/index.php/topic,4654.0.html along with what is expected for the newer members to our forum.
