Everybody Loves To Win Prizes, Right?!

I know I do.  And ArtFire is giving away a ton of prizes for helping spread the word about the Pro Deal!!  ArtFire is offering the opportunity to sign up for a studio for just $5.95 a month! There are great seller tools, options for coupons, sales mode, and more cool stuff.

And September 20th one lucky AF person can win this Cannon camera!  Wow, I was so excited when I heard about this giveaway. I'd love a new camera!!  And you can win too. Help spread the word about ArtFire's Pro Deal and you could get this sweet camera ;)  Click here for all the details on how to win!
But wait! That's not all. ArtFire has all kinds of great prizes during their Pro Deal giveaways!  So if you're an online seller of handmade goods, then not only could you win fabulous prizes, but you can also get a monthly membership for a great studio on ArtFire for under $6!! Woohoo! 

I know a lot of people have questioned how this Pro Deal works.  You sign up now to commit to the $5.95/month fee.  If ArtFire gets at least 20,000 sign ups the deal is on.  If not, your current subscription will not change.  So if you are a basic member, you remain a basic member.  If you have a current subscription at a specific rate, it would stay at that rate.
But this is such a great deal I known we'll get there.  And some wonderful people will win some great prizes too!

What I Did Today - Halloween Style

Fall is my favorite time of the year. I'm not a fan of hot weather, so when it cools down I'm happy. I love the rich fall colors of browns, oranges and yellows.  But most of all I love Halloween and all the cool stuff I can make into beads.

Yesterday my imagination was full of mummies, skulls, cauldrons and pumpkins!  My new favorites are the skulls. I think I might have to make those year round.  Just add some seasonal embellishments and girly colors and voila! I mean, who doesn't love a skull with a cutesy bow on it's head? lol

I also made a couple of bhb (big hole beads) for Pandora, Biagi and Trollbeads bracelets. They turned out really nice.  But my favorite is the one with the yellow flower on it's head.

I have more ideas then time.  I could be at the torch all day and not run out of ideas.  Too bad my day job takes up most of my time. Ah well, such is life.

Don't forget, I enjoy making custom orders, so if you'd like something special just let me know.

Crackers Aren't Just For Cheese Spread!

I'd like to warn you that the POLYMERCLAYLAND blog is a content thief! I'm starting with this line because this is the line that will show up on Google searches and the "spiders" out searching for info will "crawl" this line first. I want everyone to know there is another kind of "thief" out there. Read on....

According to Associated Content, quote: ' "Crackers", in the computer world, are those who use their hacking knowledge for malicious purposes.' I'm going to use this definition because some "crackers" are stealing SEO. And whether or not SEO is a tangible item, it's still stealing.

In the handmade world we work doubly hard to earn our Google ranking in the SEO world. It takes a lot of time and effort. People selling handmade are trying to make a living doing what they love, and the work they do is very personal and close to their hearts. And to have someone come in and STEAL their hard earned SEO by stealing blog posts and such is just wrong and unethical.

Learn more from Tina Holden who found out her hard earned SEO was stolen by a cracker who is now making money off their clicks by reposting her blog posts. Surfers think they're going to her blog, but they're really going to a bogus blog who is stealing her blog posts word for word, and only replacing the pictures. Not cool!

I think it's always a good idea to Google yourself now and then. It's fun to see where you show up, but now that there are cracker thieves out there, you can also see who's stealing your SEO!

Please go visit Tina's blog and show your support. At the bottom she has a link to help fight off SEO thieves.
