Join in the fun!

Maybe you've just stumbled upon the Art Bead Scene or you may be a frequent lurker (someone who visits without leaving a comment), you love the blog and want to be a part of the community here on the ABS.
Here are a few tips for getting noticed or partnering with our blog.
1. If you are a jewelry designer, the best thing is to leave a comment if you like a particular post. Our readers will probably stop by your blog to see what you create. If you don't have a blog, you can still open a blogger account with your bio and website links.
2. Post an entry to our monthly challenge. We want to inspire you and hope you'll share your work with us! You might even be picked as our featured Designer of the Week.
3. Join us every Saturday for our free bead giveaway. All you need to do is leave a comment on the Studio Saturday post.
4. Share the scoop! If you know of an upcoming event, new product or have a topic you'd like to see us cover here, send me a little note about it. I'd love to hear from you.
If you are a beadmaker, author, or a bead-related company the best thing to do is send a quick email as an introduction. If you'd like to be a sponsor for our monthly challenge, again just a short email to let me know you are interested. Please don't send attachments. All emails sent to the suggestion box are delivered to me, Heather - the Art Bead Scene editor.

I just found your blog by way of Nina's blog/recent interview. I love the current format and hope to participate in the monthly challenges.

I've been a subscriber for almost a year! My favorite articles are the ones about the Bead Biz. You always make great quick points that a girl like me can use for improving a growing enterprise! Thanks!
Oh...and LOVE the Cinderalla Story in Stringing!!!!!
Take care!
