One evening when I was fiddling with Etsy, I received a message from SweetSeaJewelry who asked,
"How how how did you do that with the etsy mini? it looks GREAT on your website, but when i tried to do it it didn't work on mine. i have the google apps site... "
She is talking about my use of a giant Etsy Mini on my main website, http://www.passitonplates.com/
Here's a screenshot:
My reply was:
Oh, no bother at all. I built my site with FrontPage, so I just popped in the code...
...I wanted my home page to look like a store and that was the fastest, easiest way I could think to do it. :o)
That was the key. I wanted my website to look like a store and I had been driven to tears trying to configure shopping cart software. Adding Etsy's mini to my site was the fastest, easiest way I could set it up without throwing my computer out the window in frustration.
While SweetSeaJewelry mentioned using Google sites, I tried adding an Etsy mini to a Google site I manage and while I think Google is wonderful, their sites just won't accept the code.
Had you thought of making a big Etsy Mini (should we call it an Etsy Maxi?) as the main crux of a website?
Where else could you put a maxi sized Etsy Mini?
