Invisiblilty wearing off?

Fable Bay is finally, not quite so invisible! I am so excited to be included in one of Etsy's gift guides! How they found me, I have no clue. That's the problem with half of my attempts at being noticed. I have no idea how they came across my page, whether it was by seeing one of my posts in a forum, viewing an add of mine, or possibly by accident? All I know, I do not look a gift horse in the mouth! Or in this case, gift guide:)

check them out!

Momentary Lapse...

Trying to keep up with all the ways to promote Fable Bay could become a full time job! There are so many sites I have found lately, Indie Public, Found-Handmade, Craftcult, Craftopolis,, UStrendy, craft-juice, mixxmade, facebook and twitter, just to name those on the top of my head. I spend more time each day logging in and updating those pages, than I actually spend creating or listing new pieces!

The part I am not sure about yet, is whether any of these pages are even bringing traffic to my page! But as I am still new, and virtually invisible, I am planning to keep it up for a bit longer. It might wear me out, but while I can, I guess I must.

Word of mouth seems to be my best bit of advertisement so far, but I need to keep people coming back. So I am really putting effort into my facebook page. It seems strange, as there are so many other avenues of visibility, but it's free, and everyone has a facebook page, so...
