One of my New Year’s goals for Little Eye was to get myself on the front page of Etsy. I feverishly curated treasuries all month in hopes of the favor being returned, and although I did ‘get it’ once (a friend in a different time zone told me) it was at 4:00 in the morning on a weekday. C’mon! Well! Tonight I was noodling around Etsy and found an easier way to find out if you’ve been in any treasuries that made it to the FP that your friends just didn’t see!
Step 1: Select the ‘treasuries’ button from the front page to do a treasury search in the field at the top of the screen.
Step 2: Search your shop name (in my case, littleeyedesigns) just as it appears on your account.
Step 3: Click on all results with 100 or more comments. If any of those comments say: “Congrats on the FP!” well then, kiddo, you were on the FP.
Phew! So for all that feverish worry and work it turns out that I’ve been gracing the front page of Etsy since I really started taking my shop seriously in October of 2010. Although it’s the exception and not the rule, sometimes things are easier than they seem!
You can also go to Craft Cult and look in the Vault. If you search for your name then you can see any treasuries you were in that made it to the front page.
I’m still waiting for mine : )
Oh man, awesome! That’s a LOT easier!
