Announcing a new blog challenge

It's not secrete that the economy has taken a huge hit. As an Etsy artist I've felt the wrath of sales dropping off and picking up. This year I'm all about giving back to my Etsy Economy. I've sat down and thought how can I do this? I can't really afford to buy everything I want off Etsy; and the list of things I want is huge; so how can I give back in a fun way? Blog Challenge is what I've come up with. What is Blog Challenge What does it mean for the Etsy community? What's in it for me? These are probably the questions you're asking yourself.
What is Blog Challenge?
Blog Challenge is a monthly contest. At the beginning of each month a new challenge will be issued. Everyone on Etsy is welcome to try the challenge which will consist of a theme. I will post the theme challenge on the first of the month and you will have til the last day of the month to complete your Blog Challenge for the following month.
Example: For April the theme is going to be Spring. It is your job to complete a Blog Challenge piece that you feel represents spring in your craft arena. You have until March 31st at 9am centeral time to email me at with a photo of your item along with your shop link. Voting for April will take place on my blog starting April 2nd ending on Aprile 9th. On April 10th the winner will be announced.

What's in it for you?
The winner will receive a feature on my blog. In addition I will promote you that month using Twitter, Facebook, Myspace, and the Etsy Forums. Second place winner will get to choose a theme for an upcoming challenge.

What's in it for the Etsy Community?
This is a great way for the Etsy Community to work together to help each other sell. It is also a great way to meet other Etsians.

If this sounds like something you would be interested in doing please get your spring inspired items emailed to me at krystal.backer. Then check back April 2nd to vote! Don't forget to tell your friends and family to vote too!
Good luck!!
