Universal Craft Blog Directory

Welcome to the Crafty Bloggers Link-Up.

This is (hopefully) going to be the biggest list of Crafty Bloggers out there,
it will be a Universal Craft Blog Directory!

It's easy to join....
All you have to do is add your blog to the link below
and then invite all your blog readers to join as well,
and they will invite their blog readers etc etc
and hopefully it will keep being sent forward
& all the crafty bloggers will come back here to the directory & add their name! 

Cool huh!


For now it's just under one category: Craft and as the directory list grows,
so will the categories and it will then have it's own blog site!


And to make it easy to remember where the Universal Craft Blog Directory is...
here is a button to add to your blog:

Copy & past this button to your blog & link back to this post
to help spread the word to help the directory grow! OR copy & paste the code (over in my sidebar under the button pic).
Rules:  There are no rules... Well, I guess there is one, no two rules ... 
1.)  It's for Crafty blogs (you can determine if your blog is crafty - do you make, create or buy lots of crafty stuff?)  
2.)  You need to promote this on your blog for the Directory to work!

Step 1:  Add your craft blog name to the linky list below - to find the linky button to do this - scroll down past all the other craft links & at the bottom there is a blue box saying "Add your link" - click this.
The easiest & best way to do add your link to avoid any errors is to copy & paste the link direct from your website into the linky box below.

Step 2: Create your own blog post, letting everyone know that a huge Crafty Directory is being made & invite them to pop on over here to add their crafty blog & then to do the same with their bloggy readers.
Step 3: Add the button to your blog so you remember to pop back & peruse the fab new Crafty Directory!

Richard Rose said...

I joined but I messed up the link the first time. Can you delete links that aren't right? If so delete the http://rosescraft.blogspot.com as that's incorrect.

Richard.

yardage girl said...

Great idea - I have added my link - thanks!
What next? It would be great to maybe group the blogs in some way, eg quilting blogs, sewing blogs, not really sure, but maybe some broad groups so they could be navigated easily??? Having said that, I kinda like the "lucky dip" approach too! Nic

Spyder said...

fabulous idea!

Old Magnolia Tree said...

I love the idea of this. It's a great way of connecting bloggers. I've joined and added it onto my facebook ac but I'm having one problem. Every time that I try to copy and paste the button, blogspot won't let me and tells me that either it contains illegal characters or that it is broken. What am I doing wrong?? I'm useless at computers is probably it!!!

Laura Ingalls Gunn said...

What a great idea! Is there any way to alphabetize the list in the future?

Helen B. @ Blue Eyed Beauty Blog said...

I LOVE this!!! I just linked up my blog: Blue Eyed Beauty! I will be adding the button to my Connect page and sharing this with my readers on Wednesday in my Wednesday Weekly Review #14!
