Building community

During my time on Etsy, I've realized how vital and important is to make connections with other people (hence the Facebook page, Twitter account and brand spanking new blog). As I was sitting here thinking about this new wave of internet self promotion, I realized that I've already been making connections in other ways.

Many of you may not know this, but I'm getting married in May. During my many months of planning, I've been scouring Etsy for various unique things that I can use for my wedding. Actually, looking for special custom wedding items was the original reason I happened upon Etsy. I have had the pleasure to interact with some truly fabulous and talented sellers... a few of which I have actually kept in touch with after I purchased items from them.

So, over the coming days, I plan to tell you all about the amazing people that I've met on Etsy and give you the opportunity to see some of the beautiful things they've made for me... gee... I guess I'll have to save the bridesmaids gifts until after the wedding in case one of them reads this. :-)
