Helping the Hectic Team Launch

On Etsy I found that more often than not, people are juggling responsibilities, such as jobs,, school, families, and so much more as well as running an Etsy shop, or even several Etsy shops.

While getting to know several working crafters, I also found out that time management was a major problem in some form for all these hectic working people. From regular listing, making time for crafting, making time for cleaning, as well as promoting were all popular concerns.

I began to wonder what best would help as many working crafters as possible. At first I would share my personal situation and tips I have learned or gained from others. However, I realized so many people have great ideas in some areas while needing help in others. What would best help such busy people gain help in the area they specifically need in order to do well in life as well as Etsy?


I decided to create a team for the busy Estian. Helping the Hectic Team will allow anyone to join who wants to get and give tips about balancing work/school/life with Etsy. You can post your concerns and ask for help in a specific area and people with similar concerns will be able to come together and deal with that area, helping out several people at once.

It will also be a support group! The team is only a day old, but already I feel close to several people because they are dealing with the same problems as myself. In looking at comments, I think others are gaining this relief as well.

Also, this is a wonderful avenue to use in order to help one another promote. We will do team BNRs in time, treasuries, promotion days, blog features, and more. However, because the main reason for this team is because people are busy, the requirements will not be as strict as other teams.

The bottom line of this team is an aid for everyone. We can help ourselves through helping others! In addition we can gain views and sales at the same time, while also gaining friends.

I'm very excited about this team and cannot wait to see you there!


  1. Such a great idea for a team! Thanks so much for starting it! :)

  2. So glad you started this group. Will do my best to keep promoting it. :)

  3. This team sounds great. I'm a little hesitant to join, though, because I just joined three teams...I took a little time off (I've got a newborn now), and when I got back on Etsy, so much had changed!!! Forums, circles...So much to learn about now. And I'm still trying to catch up with my blogging and my Etsy shop. Maybe you can send me a convo so we can chat, teener! =)


  4. Great idea!! Have room for a eBay seller to add to the mix? ;o) Love your new fresh and fun! Good luck!!

  5. Congrats on your team! I'm giving you a versatile blogger award! :) Check the post here for more info.
