    What I would like to know is... WHY is there no section menu anywhere on the blog? It is really hard to find anything here. I just can't grasp why there is no "map".

    This is truly a wonderful idea, bookmarking.

    Great idea. Thanks! I'm not really into the RSS feed but would love to be able to navigate by title, date, subject or tags of the blogs posts. Will you have something like that? I won't know what to search for so having those things would be important to me. I'm really liking all these updates and changes. Loving the share features too!!! Thanks a million.

    It would be really nice to be able to use the 'search' effectively in the Storque. Its almost impossible to find anything any more. When I search for the term 'scam' (of which there are at least 2 articles) I find it rather interesting that the first few posts that come up are for Etsy Featured sellers!

  • DiBeauDesigns

    DiBeauDesigns said 5 years ago

    But what exactly is new except for the fact that there's a new place above the forums? Is this a separate Blog? I'm not getting the excitement.

  • stitchntyme

    stitchntyme said 5 years ago

    Sorry Etsy, I find this in the way. I didn't read the Blog before and I really won't be reading it now. Having Admin Announcements first with new updates was great. It was quick and easy to see any additions to announcements. :(

  • cicrafts

    cicrafts said 5 years ago

    I find this cumbersome, but, I will get used to it. I am becoming more computer savy every day. lol

  • JenSanCandles

    JenSanCandles said 5 years ago

    Looking forward to the new blog. I like that you are separating Etsy news from the more general/promotional aspect of the original Etsy blog.

  • BeachGlassMemories

    BeachGlassMemories said 5 years ago

    Stop treating your sellers like 6 yr. olds at Christmas. Just tell people what you're up to and get it over with. Let's all hope it's something wonderful like your lovely little relevancy fiasco. I find your little marketing tricks out of place during a time of turmoil. Or perhaps you're trying to distract people from the real issues at hand right now.

  • lilyravenvintage

    Amen, beachglassmemories!

    Is there a blog where we can introduce ourselves? I feel a need to say hello to everyone and make some friends and buddies. I have been on etsy for quite sometime but my sales do not reflect that.
