Indie Public

I don't remember how I stumbled upon this site, but Indie Public it's an easy to use web site for independent designers of all types. As they say: "Indiepublic is an independent art and design community. If you're an artist, designer, retailer, blogger, or just someone who gets giddy when they buy indie, we've saved a seat for you!" There's some handy app's that let you do fun stuff like make a slide show and then gives you the code so you can add it to your own web site.

You set up a profile and upload photos and away you go. It's kind of like Flickr in the way you can become "friends" with other people. There's a healthy amount of interesting groups you can join - I joined Craft Marketing Central and there's a lot of good information and links to follow in there. Yay - *more* time to spend on-line!

The only bummer I've found so far is that you have to add a mobile phone number from a supported moblie phone company before you can add the "Shopit" application, which lets people actually purchase stuff from you. And, of course, my mobile is not supported!
