Come Join Us At Indie Junction!!

Indie Junction is a new social networking site that provides a place where indie artisans across all genres form a synergy that helps each individual achieve their goals within the handmade industry. This network was the brain child of two indie artisans, Nicky of Ambient Girl Designs and Deb Hall (me) of Zur Designs. Together we had a vision of a gathering place for artists to share, collaborate, and support each other through cross-promotion and sharing of resources and ideas. That's why the key words for this site are: Create. Love. Explore. Collaborate. Support. Learn. Grow.

The site is a bit over a week old at this posting but already boasts over 130 members! Already when you log on there is a feeling of excitement! There are photos of new artisans every day, people are gathering in Chat to exchange ideas, take a break while they are working, or even eat lunch together...virtually. The discussion forums are active and already filled with useful information; anything from marketing strategies, getting more fans and followers to Facebook, Twitter, and blogs, to photography tips that are useful for all of us selling through an online venue as well as the array of talented photographers gathered there. There is even an Indie Cafe in the discussion forum where people talk a bit about what's going on in their lives whether it has to do with their art or not. I am here to report...these people are hilarious!

The Indie Junction Blog is part of our plan to feature all of the wonderful artisans that join Indie Junction. We are in the process of creating a schedule of artists and three will be featured each week! It's such a talented group...you are going to be amazed at the work you see here! Barring any unforeseen circumstances, we will begin these features starting the week of January 17th...so be sure and check back there soon!

You can also follow Indie Junction's Twitter Channel! We will be keeping you up to date on the features and all the new exciting things ahead for our site and its members!

Membership at Indie Junction is open, so simply click here, sign up, and start customizing your own page with photos, music, and depending on your selling venue, a little version of your shop! Once you're settled, come over to Chat and exchange ideas with other artisans or just hang out! Or join in on the forums, start your own discussion, or chime in at the Indie Cafe! Come join us at Indie Junction! We'll be waiting for you there!
