Just a quick note about a new feature that we can use on our Squidoo lenses or elsewhere. It is an RSS feed for etsy. Here is the link:

I just saw it on Noadi's lens and it works great!

New Squidoo Etsy Lens

Welcome to the Post Election World in the United States. I stayed up last night to watch the election returns and was very impressed with the speeches of both John McCain and Barak Obama.

I do admit, though, that I am very much tired of election campaigning and commercials, and look forward to seeing the regular old annoying commercials as I watch TV.

Enough about that, I am publishing a brand new lens today that promotes the Squidetsians etsy shops on Squidoo. It will be one more place that your store will have a link. The lens is set up similar to the Squidoo Zazzle lens that I have. Each artist or store will have a bio spot for the artist, then a link to your store through the etsy module, and a minimum of one of your lenses regarding yourself or your work. I ask in return that if you see something missing or a person that I have missed, please let me know. I realize that I am new to this group and may not know of someone that should be listed. The lens will be an ongoing gallery, so as people join the Squidetsians, they can be included in this lens. I will also be promoting books and other resources to help people create handmade businesses, so if you know of an article or book, etc, that you think I should include, please contact me. Here is the link: See you there!
