Original Post

Learning about the whole world of blogging and I want to have a link of my Etsy shop with my blog but Etsy doesn't seem to give me the option. Any bloggers out there who could help me?

I also have an offer going on in Promotions in a moment once I have worked the above out!

Many thanks

frances,

go to 'your etsy' then scroll down on the left hand side to 'promote.' click on 'etsy mini' and you can design and get html code to place on your blog.

is it a blogspot?
If it is, then you go on blogspot and add a widget for your etsy mini.

Log into blogspot
click on layout
click on add a gadget
you can choose from the options...
...you can just add a live link to your etsy shop
...or using the HTML / JAVAscript you can add an etsy mini (which you will have to copy & paste into that box after choosing the options from your own etsy shop...
