Finding your digital home

by | Jan 22, 2009 | Scrapbooking Ideas | 5 comments

It’s great to have a digiscrapping home on the web – a place to share scrapping and non-scrapping related successes, fears, tips and stories. Web forums for this purpose vary in their activity level and topics covered. To find your niche, its helpful to try them out. But who has the time?

First of all, we have some basic tips:

  • Get involved where you like the galleries
  • Don’t forget to check the forum rules for posting links, blinkies and ads
  • Find your own comfort level with off-topic posts as well as the pace of posting

    I love DST for its activity. There is always something to read in their forums, at any given moment. But I also love Peppermint Creative, The ladies there a a lot of fun! I hit a couple other places from time to time, but so far those two are my favs.

    My favorite is {we are} storytellers. I got involved with the site before I started selling there, and it was all because of their guiding philosophy: that scrapbooking is about telling stories. I’m a teacher and writer, so that obviously was the main draw when I got involved in the hobby. I think we are finally moving back to seeing more appreciation for words on layouts (for a long time, it was “see how many embellishments you can pile on a page”) and I’m excited about that shift.

    I also am a big fan of the Sweet Shoppe Designs forum, it’s like family there for me. I also read at DST, it is fast moving, but always interesting. 🙂
