Guest Post: Geeky Etsy Finds

I like to compare Etsy to New York’s Century 21: much loved by many, but too overwhelming for myself. As such, I was delighted when Jen offered to do a guest post on geeky Etsy finds, as this is a topic that I would never be able to tackle by myself. Enjoy!

Social Media Monopoly

My only gripe: does anyone use Photobucket anymore? I would think that Picasa Web would be a better choice…
