Etsy pays their employees to…what? Copy and paste the forum responses of Etsy members and call it an article.
Now granted, having a blog is a wonderful way to market yourself and let your customers know about you, your process, and your items; and we quote folks, too. But the entire article is cut and paste from the forums. She couldn’t even summarize the main points? Her own interjections occur at a minimum, yet she is part of the Dorque and labs staff, blogging and knowing what’s going on in the crafting community is what she’s paid to do!
Etsy, you’re wasting your money on many of your employees, it’s so obvious that they don’t know a damn thing about what they spew.
Oh and if you’re interested in showcasing Etsy members and their blogs, why not take a look at the Blogging street team?! Maybe just a link so other Etsians can garner support? But I guess that would take some sort of initiative on the author’s part to actually find that information. Or maybe ask them to write an article on blogging since it’s what they do. But that would mean the author knows that other parts of Etsy exist and what they work on. Oh wait, but she should, because the Dorque featured the street team in August! That would have been a good time to feature a piece on blogging. Dontcha think?!
I swear, at Etsy the left hand doesn’t know what the right hand does or what the mouth says or what the brain thinks or where the legs are going.
Etsy, one big flailing mess. And they’re hitting their customers square in the face.
