Hey Everyone, welcome back from a wet and rainy weekend. It's been blowing rain through and the grass in our front yard has been soaking in the moisture. The photos from the Hello Etsy Event have started pouring in. I hit my account max today so you can find the first half on my flickr account and the rest will be up in a few days when the new month hits. Not a bad problem to have. It was amazing how many people braved the awful weather to come out. We loved seeing each and every one of you. Thanks so much for making a difference and frankly having a lot of fun with us. To good art, food, beer, and friends. Thanks so much for being a blast. I look forward to our next month meet-up and seeing faces both old and new.
If you missed the meeting itself, we will be making a short video for you to watch in a few weeks for you to have fun looking at hopefully if all goes well. These videos always seem to take so much longer than anyone expects to put together. Also, if you feel you missed getting to see any of the talks, they are up on the Etsy Stream in the Online Labs Section. We absolutely LOVED the one by Moo's director Lisa Rodwellon. She is the rare type who is full of specific details on how to make your business work instead of the despairingly touchy feel crap that public guest speakers so often throw at their audiences. Lisa stood out as a practical breath of fresh air. There's an old saying that a people will die for lack of knowledge and it is well worth your 20 or so minutes to listen to her real practical advice on the business of business on a budget. I am posting up her video so that you can look at it here if you have trouble finding it.
Please, watch this morning with your coffee. I think you'll be glad you did.
We look forward to seeing you on the blog later this week as we release new surprises for you.
