New Blog Layout & Advertising Giveaway

Hi All,

You've probably all noticed now that the blog has had a new layout and a few additions to it. I'm really liking the 3 column layout, for anyone who wants one scroll to the bottom of the blog and click the link. It's now allowing more content including polls, I've added one to the right about catalogues and will add another soon on wholesale orders. Poll information helps us all learn more about how we plan to grow our businesses and helps me determine how Shop Handmade UK can help.


I've also added advertising to the top left column, for details on advertising on the blog click on our advertising page. So now to the good bit, to launch the new blog I'm offering 3, one month advertising spots, 1 per month from October to December. To enter the giveaway just leave a comment here. The giveaway will close Mon 28th at noon. Winners will be selected using random.org, 1st winner will have first choice of month, 2nd winner next choice and 3rd winner remaining month.

Thanks
Belinda
