Arrow Your input needed....

Your diligent swaps team is constantly trying to think up new and fun things to do (and we love your suggestions and try to incorporate them whenever we can so keep 'em coming!)...

One of the reasons we want to do that is to increase participation in the message board (and of course visibility to PW and their products as ultimately this is one of PW/HOTP's many "marketing" tools).

We have a wonderful kind of "core" group (you know who you are!) who are here rain or shine, sometimes gone for a bit on vacations, or family things going on but always back eventually...

How do we increase that number? What brought you to the message board? How can we get more crafters interested and participating?

Give thanks for unknown blessings already on their way.

Travel was tough (July).... occasions, structures (card base) and the wild card (first letter of your first name) are all intriguing criteria. Just a thought, since you asked.

What brought me here was wanting to be in a monthly card swap. So I participate every month I can. Maybe that simple idea- an invitation to join our swaps, put out in the Facebook page, the PW Blog by Michelle, and maybe if we all started to "pin" the swap cards we receive with a link to the MB we could get people interested.

Honestly, for some people the accessibility of this site is a challenge. We no longer have the tab, no longer have a button... And when you arrive here, for non-tech savvy folks, the "thread" set up can make it tough to dive in. Once you do, it all makes sense, but that first foray is tough. Can we rearrange the threads and put your SO helpful General Suggestions for getting started, along with the welcome new members and how to join swaps up at the top?
Another development is the mobile device and the challenges I have using Apple devices with this board. That is something That we probably can't overcome, I am guessing.

BTW on Pinterest when I search for Paper Wishes, the search brings back such a variety of items, not all company related. So if we pin there, it might help to develop a set of key words we all use so our pretty cards show up in searches!
