A Really Neat Website for Handcrafters & Buyers

If you are part of the Handmade Community, if there is such a thing, you are probably familiar with the different venues you can sell your products on. Like www.etsy.com, www.artfire.com, www.1000markets.com, www.dawanda.com, www.silkfair.com and more. Like others, I am registered with atleast 2 of these venues and sometimes find it hard to know when and how much to advertise each of them.

Now, we are lucky. There is a website out there, www.byhand.me, that is able to help with this problem. Byhand.me was developed by a husband & wife team of Infivision & Soapdeli. For a site that was imagined only 3-4 short weeks ago, it sure has exploded in size and traffic. According to Project Wonderful's traffic chart, they have had over 8,000 hits today alone. That's a lot of traffic!

Byhand.me has a lot of nice features like Spotlights(like etsy treasuries), window shopping(randomly selects things from different spotlights), Community & personal blogs, forums, chat & much more!

So if you want to check out an interesting community and a fun place, check out byhand.me. Oh and I forgot to mention, once you create a spotlight, you can copy the code for your blog. Like this...

I have heard a few great things about byhandme. I've been thinking about trying it, but I have so many other promotional things, it's hard to keep up at times!
