Welcome to the 101st Mad Skills Link Party!
TODAY IS THE LAST DAY TO TAKE THE BIG DIY BLOGGERS’ SURVEY!
I'm part of a group called Crafterminds, that you may or may not have heard of. We're basically just a collective of DIY bloggers that support each other in various ways, including a weekly twitter chat on a craft-blogging topic, a FB group for support, and a blog with informative blogging-related articles.
We decided we wanted more information about us - Craft bloggers. To understand our niche better. So, we came up with the idea of a survey. It is 30 quick questions, which take less than 10 minutes to answer. Once we finish collecting the data (through the end of April), we'll start analyzing it to see what we can learn about the success within this niche.
We are getting the word out about the survey so to get as many responses as possible - the more responses, the more powerful the final data will be. Would you be willing to help us spread the word? Mentioning it in your weekly link party post, tweeting, or sharing on FB would all be great!
Here is the link to the Crafterminds article that has the details, and the link to the survey: http://crafterminds.com/2012/04/big-diy-blogger-survey/
And now back to the show!
If you have participated in a Mad Skills Tutorial Link Party in the past, you have probably gotten one of my emails. I like to highlight a few of my favorite submissions each week, and email is a great way to do it!I also like to be able to thank all of you for participating in the party. It really means so much to me that you do. Commenting on each project is no longer an option for me, and I (legally) can’t spam you all with unasked for emails. BUT, if you sign up for the newsletter, I can still say thanks for your hard work AND you get to see the highlights from the weeks’ parties!Sign up for the email by clicking HERE or using the form in the pink rectangle on my sidebar.If you are linking up today, you might be featured in this week’s newsletter!
For the Mad Skills party, as usual you can link up a post, old or new, to share with other readers. The only rule for the party is that the post MUST BE A TUTORIAL. The tutorial can be written, pictorial, or a combination of the two, but it should be a project or a process that another crafter would be able to replicate. Any Mad Skill level, from novice to advanced, is welcome!
There is a Mad Skills Tutorial Link Party button that can be found by clicking on the Buttons tab on the new menu bar. Please add to your blog post or update your party pages!
Also, make sure to tell your bloggy friends about this party so we can get as many great entries as possible! You have until midnight (EST) on Thursday to enter your projects!
By participating in this party, you are agreeing to allow me to feature your project in my weekly Mad Skills newsletter. Each feature will include a link back to your project, a photo from the tutorial, and a brief explanation of why I loved your project.
I do this because I want to make sure your hard work is rewarded. If you are not comfortable with this promotion, please do not link up your project.
