<<Yeah! I’ve got a featured post!>>

While I was bothering you with my blog on how I got to be a member of a social network (aka productivity leak) for yarn addicts, I didn’t want to bother you (felt guilty) with another community I became a member on.

The Hive: CreatingTheHive.com – Your Crafts Community

I didn’t really know what to expect from this. And got a bit sceptical when I saw ‘blog’ as a tab.

“Oh great! Yet another website I have to go and write blogs on to have people to get to know me”, was one of the thoughts that crossed my mind.


This network site for Bizzy Bees has a very need feature: it imports a blog through RSS.


Although I am a busy person, I’m rather lazy than tired, so to speak.

So I added the link to my RSS-feed ‘et voilà’, all my blog posts were on The Hive! With one click of my mouse. Including all the pictures. Sigh. Don’t you just love how technology can make your life so much easier?

But that wasn’t all of the story.

To my surprise I found three Sacha Kay followers and four comments on a blog post, less than a day after my membership. And even some ‘likes’ to other blogposts.

Despite my Etsy membership and effort to find fellow crafters (through FaceSpace and Twitter) who like to leave short messages in all sorts of ways, my blog wasn’t overflowing with comments or any other signs that people actually read my blogs. And here it is: after one day on The Hive, prove that people actually read what I write.

It turned out they made my blog on the recycled clasp bag a “Featured Post”, including need little bee with a heart!
