If you sell crochet or knitting related items online or offline, you can request to have your very own sub-forum here on CrochetTalk.com where you can promote your store and/or items. We do not charge anything to be listed, but there are a few things that are required:

1. You must have a website, blog or store (Etsy, etc.). No eBay only or Facebook only sellers
2. You must link back to CrochetTalk.com from your site/store using one of the graphics supplied below if possible.
3. You need to remain active on your sub-forum that we setup for you.
4. We encourage you to participate in discussions here at CrochetTalk, but you are not allowed to promote your products any where except for in your sub-forum.
5. Please don't post anything negative in any other vendors sub-forum.

If you only have an Etsy store, you can link to CrochetTalk by going to the "About" page and in the "Links" section select "Shop Blog" or "Shop Website" from the dropdown and then enter http://crochettalk.com in the "Link URL" box and save it. Once we have confirmed this we will setup your sub-forum here and you can change the link to the one for your sub-forum if you'd like.

Please PM Barbara or email allforumhelp@gmail.com once you have linked to us, or if you have any questions or need any help.

You can use on of the graphics below on your site to link to CrochetTalk.com:

I do not have a website at this time. When I signed up with you, I had paid someone to set up a site for me, but he did not follow through with what he told me he would do. I am left holding the bag. My site is in his name, which is one of the things he messed me up on, and it is now parked. I have been left in limbo. My friends and I do want to list some things online, but on way to do so at this time. Thanks for your offer.

There are many free blog sites you can easily set up online. I will add some information about free sites, blogging tips, ect. in the forums for you and others to see. If you have a blog which is some way related to crocheting or knitting you are welcome to join us in the vendors/business section to let others know about items you are selling.

We are here to help in any way possible and there is plenty of time to make an effort if you are interested. I am sad to hear you were left hanging with the gentlemen who was setting a site up for you; I am sure it is disheartening. Hopefully, things will change and be better for you in the long run.

It sounds like learning more about free blogs may be a great option for you to consider. We will provide as much general support as we possibly can to help you if you decide to pursue this option.

One option would be to create a free online blog if you are not using Etsy or another acceptable online store/site. I will be posting information in the forums about free blogs and options available as well as other helpful information.

Linking your business here on CrochetTalk is a great way to form partnerships. We help each other along the way to make new friendships, find new followers, and it helps to promote each other's site as well.

Yes, you can link from Etsy. Just edit your "About" page, and go to the "Shop Links" page, and add a "Shop Link" or "Blog Link" and for the "Link URL" type in http://crochettalk.com

Hi. I sent an email last night to the address above, but it came back undeliverable. It sounds like fun having a forum thread and I'd like to participate. I'm having trouble looking at how to set up as well as where to get the HTML code for the crochettalk logo links to put in my shop. Please let me know what to do .... it's an independent shop.

Hi Lorrie,

It looks like your site is with Highwire. Do you manage it yourself?

Hi Claire,

If you'd like to link your sites to crochettalk.com, take a look at the first post in this thread for instructions and let use know when you are done, or if you need help. Then we can get your sub-forum all setup here for you.

Thank you for this offer. I have not figured out how to add your link to my web page (Custom Crochet (http://allthingscrochet.webs.com/)). Please help me with that with more specific instructions.

It looks like you built your site using web.com. To add a link to your webs.com site, watch this video: How to edit the Footer : Webs 3.0 Support Center (http://webs.zendesk.com/entries/23095494-How-to-edit-the-Footer)

At the 1:20 mark of the video you will see how to add a link. You will first want to type the word CrochetTalk.com then highlight it and click the "Link" button shown in the video. You will get a popup box, click the "Webpage" tab and then enter http://crochettalk.com into the box, then click insert link.

That should do it.

Hello Everyone,
I am excited to learn new techniques and discuss things with fellow crocheters. I started at 4 years old and now I have a small business. How fun to love what you do and get paid for it.

One option is to create a free blog online. Many of them are available if you don't want to purchase a domain name and create a website.

Also, are you planning on selling on Etsy at any given time? This is another way to link to us and we will add a special sub-forum here for you. Let us know if you need more guidance.

Hello Nova55,

Here is an article which might be helpful for you:

https://en.support.wordpress.com/widgets/links-widget/

This is for Wordpress.com sites. I do know there may also be other widgets for Wordpress.org sites.

Nova55,

Okay, and here is one for the Wordpress.org sites:

Take a look at these and let us know when you add a link to our site.

Thank you!

I believe that what I need is an "Image URL". All the other info is now there; all I'm missing is the picture.

Hello,

I don't have an image URL for the pictures. I do know that you can right click and save them to your computer. Then, when you upload the photo to your blog, you should be able to attach a link to the photo which will take the user to www.crochettalk.com.

Can you post a link here of your blog for us to take a look at? Or, send it to me via private message?
