An Indie Biz: Etsy’s New About Page

So I did it – I hunkered down last night to create my “About” page on Etsy.

Deciding how to embody your brand in a neatly wrapped box and bow was quite the ordeal – which must explain why I’ve been putting it off for the past week. From the moment I read the announcement I cringed, knowing that my over-the-top detail-oriented brain would implode at the possibilities. The questions that boggled my mind included: What kind of dialogue should I use in the description? How can I fit my life story into such a small space? What photos do I choose to include in the revolving banner? Should the copy be more polished? Goofy? Down-to-earth?

Rather than pouring over the many variables over and over again, I cozied up to one of my goblins, grabbed a tall bev, and sat down for a three hour stretch. And the result? Well – I’ll let you be the judge of that!

Let me know what you think of the finished product. Suggestions, edits, constructive criticism and, maybe, even a compliment would be great! Please share your thoughts in the comments below! I look forward to hearing what you think.
